     If you want to contact me, call 359-4VAC(822). We are normally there from 9:15 until 5 Monday-Saturday. Chris or I will try to answer your question.


     The only reason there is a contact page is because the web page hosting company had a pre designed plan that included a contact page. The 359-4822 is the best and fastest way to contact me. There used to be a way to email me thru this page, but I was getting 5 or more spam emails a day, and less than 1 from customers a month, so I deleted that part of the page


     The above picture is me hanging off an original Burlington Zephyr from the 30's at the national transportation museum outside St. Louis (I stopped on the way to a visit to the Riccar Vacuum factory in St. James, Missouri). I like old trains and cars, and many art deco design appliances (the Electrolux model 30, a prewar and postwar example are pictured below, was introduced in 1936, and is, in many people's opinions, including mine, one of the coolest looking vacuums).

A thought or two to REALLY LIVE by

The Bible says, "For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind". While we shouldn't be afraid of Covid19, we can act in love towards others by not doing things that might spread the disease(many healthy people can have Covid19 without manifesting symptoms). We can also pray for wisdom for our leaders. The Bible says we are to "lift up all those in authority". This was written at a time the Roman emperor was killing Christians, so whether or not one agrees with our leaders, we should pray for them to make the right decisions.




Jesus said "no one comes to the Father except through me" Many people say there are many ways to heaven, but that isn't what God's word says. Christ died for my & your sins, and rose from the dead so that we might have Eternal Life. Do you have eternal life yet? If you're not sure, this page from Campus Crusade for Christ may help.

My Church


      I am a member of Living Word (the geodesic dome building by the interstate in St Joseph). We are blessed with a pastor who has the gift of teaching. Services are normally at 9:30 on Sunday morning.  Due to the Corona virus, Wednesday night live services were cancelled, but have re-started on a limited basis(1st Wednesday of every month). On the other Wednesdays there is a new message from Pastor Mike available to watch on the internet (or later at your leisure). If you can't make it in person, Sunday's service is live streamed and also watchable later.  Living Word also emphasizes children's ministry, so bring the kids and ask an usher which classroom your child will be in. They'll learn Bible stories and memorize scripture.
