I’m sure many other members would like to know the best place to go on the web for their Bible Questions Answered.  https://www.gotquestions.org/

As many of you may know I have over 20 years of full-time christian ministry experience. And over the years i have noticed that there is one web site that i have used over and over again as i study the bible, study theology, counsel folks, prepare sermons, and write bible studies. That website is www.gotquestions.org This site has over 600,000 questions about the bible answered. I have recommended this site to others more than any other site. The answers are written clearly, with little confusion. they cite their sources well, and offer study aids for deeper learning on a subject. and many of the answers have video’s as well. It is a great site. It answers questions in a simple way, just sharing what the bible says about a topic, in an easy to understand format. Next time you have a question, whether it is as obscure as “Did Adam and Eve have belly-button’s?” or deeply personal like “What is salvation?” check out www.gotquestions.org.

Did you know?

Our Coffee Shop is a Christian fellowship of  Amateur Radio Operators – Are you, or, is someone you know in need of prayer?  In our Coffee Shop we believe in the power of prayer! Many people have received blessings that we believe are a result of the powerful prayers of our membership and their faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.  Anyone, visitors and members alike can request prayers for themselves or their loved ones. Our Chaplain, Stan – N9RFO handles most of the prayer requests, but, any moderator can submit your prayer request to our prayer warriors!  Full members in Our Coffee Shop can opt to receive our prayer request emails and most do.  If you would like to submit your prayer request via email, send to KD4LQB@ourcoffeeshop.org
