Adventist Education Sabbath Sermon

Dear Church Family, “I appeal to you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is […]

Celebrating 60 Years

Richardson SDA Church 60th Anniversary

Dear Extended Richardson Church Family and Friends, This Sabbath is a high Sabbath for this congregation and everyone who has been connected with it over the years.  Just imagine what if, over 60 years ago, no one at the Dallas First Adventist Church had the vision or courage to think about starting a new church?  What if all they had wanted to do […]

The Wrong Choice In Life?

Hijer has to choose between two path in a forrest

Dear Church Family, Many people young and old are worried they will make the wrong choice in life: Where should I live? Whom shall I marry? Should I continue my education? What career should I choose? These choices can potentially be outside of the will of God. Does the bible teach us what God’s will […]

The Eternal Babyhood of the Believer

Experiencing God

There are a lot of “good” people who attend church and are involved in ministry, but is it possible we’re just going through the motions and don’t really have a personal relationship with Jesus?


Dear Church Family and Friends, Ezekiel 37 tells the story of God’s Spirit taking the prophet to a valley with bones in it.  As he stands in the valley, Ezekiel sees there are many, many bones, and he also sees they are very, very dry.  Then God asks him a question:  “Can these bones live?”  […]

Worship and Sacrifice

What comes to your mind when you think of worship? Two boring hours at church once a week? Hoping you get something out of it that makes you feel good? The following illustration may open the door to a whole new way of thinking about worship. Boarding the ship the SS Dorchester on a dreary winter day in 1943 were […]


Dear Church Family and Friends, Covid-19 is quite literally hitting home for many of us at this point. In a world that has even politicized a pandemic, it can be hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope can seem like a pipe dream – something not based in reality. So, […]

Slow Down, Be Quiet, and Rest in the Lord

This week I’d like to just open my heart to you a little bit about the current events in our wonderful nation. For years now, the political divide between the people of this country has been growing, which was cause for concern in and of itself. Then this year barely got started and we were […]

Adventist Education

First, I feel compelled to just stop for a moment and express gratitude to God for His goodness during this time that has been so difficult for all of us in so many ways. Even as we acknowledge that is has been, and continues to be difficult, in the midst of that, we have still […]

Pre-Advent Prepping

Dear Church Family, Something’s in the air, and I am not just thinking of viruses. As Pastor Byron talked about last Sabbath, we realize that we are living in the very last chapter of this Earth’s history. This is exciting, but also very sobering. Many people have questions and fears for the future. “Are we going to make it throughout this?” and […]
