Welcome Home?

Does your place of worship actively welcome military and veteran families? Do you reach out or do you hold back, unsure of what to expect or how to make that connection?  Do you have someone in your church designated as a military outreach coordinator?  If you have a church counselor are they trained to deal with issues associated with military service?

All good questions but how many can you answer?  Military service, especially combat, can change a person to the point that they have a difficult time getting back in touch with their faith, their friends and their family.

The next move is yours!

Terminate US Dept. of Education!

Do we need a sixty-eight billion dollar (per year) federal bureaucracy to regulate  local school systems?  Why would we assume that these  bureaucrats have a better grasp on our children’s educational needs than the local school board and those who actually are tasked with teaching them?

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has introduced Hr 899 that would abolish the federal Department of Education:  “The Department of Education Shall Terminate on December 31, 2018”.  His original bill was co-sponsored by  Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA), and Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID).
