A Pastor’s Perspective 12-14-2021

Snyder has enjoyed 42 years of presenting the Singing Christmas Tree [SCT]. Even in 2020, during the height of a global pandemic, we were able to offer a special time of worship and share the Gospel message through a pre-recorded video project. We learned many things from that experience and we had a renewed sense […]

Take It With You 12.12.2021

The third Sunday of Advent was called Gaudete Sunday, with Gaudete meaning joy. As we anticipate the arrival of our Lord, we have first contemplated the Hope, and then the Peace, brought about by it. Now we consider the Joy. But first we must know what joy is. In common talk we often equate joy […]

Take It With You…Peace and The Trouble With Christmas We might think “the trouble with Christmas” is that we’re too busy, or we can’t get everything bought, wrapped or cooked.  Maybe we can’t make family members happy with Christmas plans, or perhaps we even have too many church responsibilities.  All of these can take our […]

Sometimes God is super direct in His messages to us: love your neighbor; have no other gods before me; be anxious for nothing but in all things, trust God.  I didn’t say these things are always easy to carry out, but they are easy to understand. Other parts of scripture are trickier.  I don’t know […]

Soli Deo Gloria. If you didn’t know what the Latin phrase meant a week ago, you for sure know now. To God Be The Glory Alone! The theme of the 2021 Singing Christmas Tree was on display Thursday through Sunday last week. I’d like to say a special thanks to Richard for putting together an […]

A Pastor’s Perspective 11-30-2021

The majority of Americans celebrating Christmas this year will get “zonked”.  The term is heard on “Let’s Make A Deal” when someone trades in a great prize for the chance of getting something bigger and better.  Our friends and neighbors will choose to place their hope in something, or someone… that will break, wear out, […]

A Pastor’s Perspective 11-23-2021

Saturday was a bittersweet day in the life of our family. We celebrated and praised the Lord for the life of my sister-in-law, Angie Herrmann. As with most funerals, we experienced both the joy of heaven and the sorrow of knowing we won’t see Angie again on this earth. This week Brett (Angie’s husband and […]

Two weeks I look forward to every year are the weeks of Vacation Bible School and the Singing Christmas Tree. During both weeks, we get a front-row seat to watch how Snyder Memorial Baptist Church comes together as the body of Christ to witness members using their gifts to serve others and honor Christ. Operation […]
