Christian Andresen is one of our "Old Timers" here at The Village Chapel. He was on board from the beginning and followed us over to The Village Chapel from Calvary Chapel Santa Maria. I don't think there is much that Christian hasn't done. He is one of our Deacons and has helped with set up … Continue reading Volunteer of the Week: Christian Andresen
Yesterday we look at the first 12 verses of 1 John 5. These verses really talk about God's testimony. A testimony is a account of an event usually given in court.

I talked about (you can listen here) how growing up my biggest love was baseball but through several traumatic embarassments by my father I gave up playing by time I got into to high school. This parlayed over to me being a parent because … Continue reading What Holds You Back?
