13 ‘Pokemon Go’ Church Signs That Now Exist

“Jesus Died to Catch ‘Em All!”

In the course of a week, the mobile app “Pokemon Go” has taken over the world, sending smartphone-wielding pixel hunters out into their communities to find virtual Kabutops and Jigglypuffs.

The game caused Nintendo stock to spike 70 percent, adding billions of dollars to the company’s value.

Churches, which are the home to thousands of “gyms” and Pokestops, have been an unexpected benefactor because they are essential stops for “Go” enthusiasts.

Of course, church signmakers are not ones to let an opportunity like this pass them by. Nay, it is the moment for culture’s great marquee poets to shine like never before. (H/T Twitter Moments)



Good Morning!

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday! We get to celebrate the greatest event in history: the physical resurrection of Jesus from the dead!

Worship begins at 10:15 am. There will be special music and a children’s sermon (no Children’s Church). I will preach about the resurrection and how it can make a difference in our lives based on Matthew 28:1-10.

He is Risen!

He is Risen Indeed!

  in your presence there is fullness of joy;
  at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

This evening at Harvey Oaks Baptist Church was the Annual Thanksgiving Service. Paul Yates of Tiny Hands International. It is a wonderful Christian organization out of Lincoln, NE that not only raises awareness of slavery and sex trafficking but also rescues young girls and boys out of that diabolical trade. Did you know there are 27 million slaves around the world and half of them are children? Are you aware that sex trafficking is alive and well in the United States? By that, I mean children and young people are sex slaves even the heart of the Midwest.

It should break our hearts!

Yesterday evening, I returned home to Omaha, NE from Michigan. I went deer hunting with five other men in the north, central part of the state. We set up “deer camp” which was a fifth-wheel RV. The living quarters were a little tight, but we had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, we did not see many deer. Thus, I was unable to fill my out-of-state deer tag. Oh well! There is always next time.

I did pray a lot during those many hours when I sat in my deer blind. I also prayed a lot when I laid in bed. I prayed myself to sleep and I prayed when I woke up in the middle of the night.

I prayed that Jesus would be glorified in my life!

I prayed that we would be kept safe as we hunted.

I prayed that revival would come to Harvey Oaks Baptist Church.

I prayed for the November 17th Sunday School and worship service.

I prayed for my wife and children.

I prayed my relatives who need Jesus in their lives.

I prayed that God would heal people.

I prayed that God would restore broken marriages.

I prayed for all the widows at Harvey Oaks Baptist Church.

It was  good to be away from the computer and television and for the most part, my phone (we used our phones to communicate with one another, but the reception was not always that good!)

Let us continue to seek the Lord through prayer.

“Continue steadfastly in prayer…” (Colossians 4:2)

Lois and I attended the Release Ministries Annual Banquet this evening. Did you know that God began that wonderful ministry through two Harvey Oaks Baptist Church members? Back in 1994, God called Bill Ellett and Al Doney begin ministering to the youth at the Douglas County Youth Center!

God has used Release Ministries to transform the lives of hundreds of teenagers since then!

Let us pray that God will continue to reach incarcerated youth through the Release Ministries!
