Making Time for Rest

Making Time for Rest

By Kathy A. Weckwerth.  As a child, growing up in Southwest Iowa, I spent a lot of time outside amidst the lush green grass, the beautiful butterflies, the fuzzy yellow jacket bees and the bright dragon flies that Mom grew outside the patio. Day after day, I would lazily flit about enjoying summer afternoons. In […]

The Next Big Thing~Church in the Grove

By:  Kathy A. Weckwerth:  It’s been three years since the church arrived.  That sounds strange.  The church arrived.   In my mind’s eye, I can still feel the warmth of that August day.  I can still hear the sounds of the worship band singing “Amazing Grace.”  I can still embrace the excitement that we felt as […]

Keeping the Faith

Keeping the Faith

By:  Kathy A. Weckwerth:  As I drove away, I found my heart hurting, my mind whirling, and felt the urge to cry.  Not the crying that one feels when you lost someone or something you know, but the crying that comes from feeling the pain of losing something you never knew.  I pulled out of […]

In It For the Long Run

I Corinthians 9:24, “Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” Long ago, in the midst of summer days where fireflies and June bugs flitted and whirred in the warm Iowa air, I lived in […]

Be Encouraged!

Be Encouraged!

While scanning through some of my emails, I stopped in my tracks as I read one from a large church that said, “Bob Smith, Encouragement Pastor.” I was so excited!  I thought, what a brilliant concept.  Some church finally gets it!  Some staff is leading a team where one person is focused on something that […]

Dreaming and Believing

Do you ever wonder about dreams?  Do you ever ask yourself if you truly believe a dream in your heart can come true?  Or maybe you question God and ask Him if He will ever answer that dream.  About ten years ago, Pastor Greg invited Dean and me to go to the high school play, South […]

5 Steps to Dealing With People Who Annoy You

By Kathy Weckwerth. Through the years I served as a Worship Director, and now as an Executive Director of a nonprofit.  I have dealt with the aggravation, the angst, and the disappointment of people who are challenging and really bug me. In my own personal world, I have had struggles with friends and family members who, at the very […]

By: Kathy A. Weckwerth Psalm 46:1, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Last night was a service at the Church in the Grove.  Each month during the months of April-December, we host a Saturday night at 6, for something fun, encouraging, and community-minded.  But the weather last night was, as […]

God’s Got You

God’s Got You

I had thrown everything into my suitcase, grabbed my talk, and headed for the car.  It would be another day of racing and running to get to where I needed to be and to begin a long journey to Iowa to see my 84-year-old mother. The drive was not peaceful, but in actuality, gave me […]

When Others Say No

When Others Say No~By Kathy Weckwerth Over the years, I have had people say, “no,” to me.  Not about volunteering, or sharing, or giving me their new Lexus, but “no,” when they think I shouldn’t do something, go somewhere, become someone.  They bluntly and boldly say, “No … you can’t do that.”  To which I […]
