Just in case you have ever wondered…
The Motor Racing Outreach Community Center began in 1995. The new MRO CC seen here rolled in May 2006 and continues to serve families who travel in our sport.
This is simply one part of the faithful work that MRO does week in and week out at the track.
So grateful for the beautiful ladies who i serve alongside of. It takes a village!!

Daytona MRO Community Center Happenings
Our 22nd Daytona 500 is in the books! Our hearts are so full and we are grateful to our faithful God for His love for this community. It took many hands this last week to make it all happen and to keep it all going. What an incredible outpouring of excitement that fillled our little tent every moment of every day.
Our heart to serve Christ alongside of each other began when we got married in May of 1981- that is almost 42 years if you need help counting. God connected us to MRO in the late 90’s. We fell in love with the mission and longed to serve God in the field, outside of the church as we had done so many times before! Everything we had learned in our early years of ministry drew us deeply to the work going on at the MRO Commmunity Center. Ron Pegram and Jackie Pegram, thanks for believing in us and encouraging us to step toward the work that God was doing through MRO.
God continues to love and stir in our midst. We raise His banner week after week and He continues to faithfully draw people to Himself. Our heartbeat is to capture every moment that will lead to conversations about the gospel, to live faithfully and remain steadfast among our community, to keep loving them as God has loved us and to give our very best in order to see the kingdom of God grow and flourish in 2023. Heaven will tell of God’s faithfulness through the years and tonight I give thanks to God for allowing us to offer our hearts to the one small part of the whole of the work that God is doing in the lives of NASCAR families. Glory and honor to Him!
So grateful for our sweet little Community Center tribe of hard working ladies (and men) who bring their best every weekend to make the Community Center available to traveling families.
Until Atlanta friends!
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23

Palm Sunday Read, Reflect and Relax
Lent – Palm Sunday: Read, Reflect and Rest
Today is Palm Sunday, the day when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and was welcomed as the long-awaited king.
As you rest today, take some time to read and reflect on Matthew 21:1-11 (New International Version):
As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to Me. If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away.”
This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
“Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”
The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of Him and those that followed shouted,
“Hosanna to the Son of David!”
“Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”
When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, “Who is this?”
The crowds answered, “This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee.”
Lent Day 5 Transformed By The Cross
Transformed By The Cross
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:18-19, New International Version)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! (2 Corinthians 5:17, NIV)
Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all. (Colossians 3:9-11, NIV)
Have you ever been thrift shopping?
Thrifting is something I’ve loved for a while because of the unique finds, affordable price tag and the story behind each piece. Finding old treasures and bringing them new life is exhilarating. A pair of jeans or a lamp that would have been thrown away can now be your prized possession.
This is what your identity in Christ is like. The old is gone and the new has come, as 2 Corinthians 5:17 says, because of the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross. You can trust that your old self was crucified and that you now have a new identity in Christ. That is something worth celebrating!
You can have confidence that by God’s grace He is growing you and sanctifying you. Colossians 3:10 says that those who are in Christ “have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” You are being renewed daily by God because of His great sacrifice.
Christ delivers you from old to new through His sacrifice on the cross and resurrection. God’s grace alone can take what’s old and make it new.
By His sacrifice, Christ takes your spiritual brokenness and introduces a new metric that says your hope isn’t in your ability to improve; rather, newness comes from redeeming love.
Praise Him that new things can come through Christ and because of Christ. As Isaiah 43:18-19 reminds us, “Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (English Standard Version).
May you fix your eyes on Christ and how He has made you new!
“Lord, thank you that you make old things new. Grant me the peace to see renewal in my life, and remind me to look only to you to produce this transformative change in me.”
