Don’t Ignore Your Dream- The Sisterhood

by Shannon Kanaday • February 20, 2018

DON’T IGNORE YOUR DREAM “There is still a vision for the appointed time; it testifies to the end; it does not deceive. If it delays, wait for it; for it is surely coming; it will not be late.” Habakkuk 2:3 The book of Ruth In Ruth’s day, every little girl’s dream was to grow up, […]


Fasting as Fuel

by Shannon Kanaday • January 12, 2018

Fasting as Fuel I have been so encouraged by the way our local congregation has responded to the call to “feast” on God for the next 21 days.  I realize that the spiritual discipline or practice is called “fasting”.  Nevertheless, the reality that I have been discovering as I approach day 5 is that fasting has become […]


Hop On The Bus

by Shannon Kanaday • November 16, 2017

Hop On The Bus I am not sure if you have ever missed a really important meeting or event but if you have lived at all I’m sure you know what I am talking about.  I can’t think of a time this happened on purpose.  I mean its not like I woke and thought “I think I’ll […]


How God Changes Me

by Jerimy Kanaday • October 3, 2017

How God Changes Me On Sunday, we began our new series called “Practices”.  The main idea we gathered around was the thought that “What God gets out of our lives is the person we become.”  We talked about how God changes our lives.  We learned that thru “training not trying”, we are able to participate […]


Practice Makes Perfect

by Jerimy Kanaday • September 28, 2017

Practice Makes Perfect “This isn’t true!” was the sentence heralded by my high school basketball coach.  He then followed it with this statement, “Perfect practice makes perfect”.  I understood what he was trying to say but I immediately dismissed it.  After all, no one is perfect.  Furthermore, I have spent a lot of my life trying to be just […]

Your Most Asked Question

by Shannon Kanaday • September 27, 2017

Your Most Asked Question? Shannon and I adopted our son Luke 2 years ago from the nation of China.  He has been such a joy to our family.  We have often said that we didn’t know what was missing until he landed among us.  So much has changed in our lives and it has all been for the […]

Tiny Disciples

by Jerimy Kanaday • September 22, 2017

Spring Hill Tiny Disciples This weekend is one of those that falls between a sermon series.  In “preacher world” we call this a “Free Standing Message”.  Sometimes these carry some special sauce on them.  My prayer is that this weekend that will be the case. Since our church inception, I have spoken a lot about something called “discipleship.”  I […]

Spring Hill Mayor

by Jerimy Kanaday • September 20, 2017

Spring Hill Mayor A few weeks ago I had the honor of having some coffee and conversation with the Mayor of Spring Hill, Mr. Rick Graham.  Some months back I realized that my family and I had parachuted into our community and hit the ground running without making some important connections.  As a result, I reached out […]

Gospel according to Kevin

Today I went to the Spring Hill Starbucks to get some work done…this is not unusual for me. Several days a week I find my office at that location off of Highway 31. I had a list of things to accomplish, one being this blog update as well as preparation for a speaking engagement in […]

The treasure of Matthew 6

by admin • September 17, 2016

The entire Bible is wonderful! I believe that it is the inerrant, inspired words of God. Beyond the literal chapters and verses, the Bible is a narrative. It is God’s story of love and redemption. It is filled with drama, suspense, rising and falling actions, climax and resolve. Such is all of our lives as […]
