Some of Our Stories – Real God, Real Life, Real People : PODCAST

Presented on October 9, 2016 at Curwensville Alliance

Several years ago, some people at Curwensville Alliance verbalized our identity, as a people.

The words they came up with: Real God — Real Life — Real People


This past Sunday the Elders at Curwensville Alliance shared their stories with the people — just as they do when taking in members. It was great to hear how a Real God enters into their Real Lives and influences them as Real People.

NOTE: It’s important to these men that those listening understand that they are NOT holding themselves up as models of what it means to follow Jesus; rather, they are simply sharing their stories in the hopes that others may be encouraged as they follow Jesus.

May you find encouragement as you listen to the stories of Jim Bell, Dave Clark, Josh Tkacik, and Jeff Spaid.


PODCAST: Where to Find Inspiration

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on 11/8/2015 by Pastor Steve Shields

The word inspiration is a little inspiring itself.

inspirationWe use it of people from the pages of history. Who has not been inspired by the likes of Helen Keller? We use it of people whose lives today influence others in constructive ways. Tony Dungy is an inspiration because of his faith in God and the way he lives that faith out, trying to help people find grace from Christ. But are these the only places we can find inspiration? Or could inspiring people be right here in our midst?

The Apostle Paul found inspiration in the lives of people he knew personally.

Perhaps we can do the same thing.
