Welcome to the web site of the Samford church of Christ. We are a group of Christians which meets just outside the community of Steele in what is known as the Bootheel of Missouri. Our purpose is to serve and worship God in spirit and in truth, to teach others about Christ, and to help each other reach our ultimate goal of heaven.
We invite you to explore our web site to learn more about the teachings of the church of Christ and our family here at Samford. If you have any questions, please feel free to call or contact us through our "Contact Us" link. We also invite you to join us in worship at any time you may have the opportunity.
"Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common" - Acts 2:44
We Are Not Alone Tim Howard
During this time of national quarantine, it is easy to feel like we are all alone. Some of us are fortunate to be hibernating with family while others may be like Kevin at Christmas and be ”Home Alone.” We need to remember that even though we may be small in physical number, we are surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses in the faith.
Consider Daniel. When the king’s counselors plotted against Daniel due to envy and the king signed the law forbidding anyone to pray to their “god” and only to the king, no doubt Daniel felt alone. But he was faithful nonetheless. And when he was being thrown into the lion’s den, he might have felt alone. But he wasn’t. When the foolish king came running to the den the next morning seeing if Daniel’s God had saved him, Daniel replied, “My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me…” (Daniel 6:22). Daniel was not alone in that lion’s den and as God’s children, neither are we.
We may not have a physical angel with us in our times of trouble, but we know that God is there. We may not always be delivered from the physical lion’s den, but we can believe that “anywhere with Jesus we can safely go.” Because as Paul stated, whether we remain in this life or go and be with God, we will be with God. Have a blessed day.
