The Voices of Women

As I prepare for my sermon this week, I am reminded of everything women have had to endure in order to be treated equally under the law. It was not that many years ago that women could not own property, would not be considered fit to raise their children if their marriage ended in divorce, could not go to college, could not…

Father’s Day & Our Heavenly Father

Wow! We had an awesome Vacation Bible School week. Our campus was filled with the laughter of children and the excitement of learning about Jesus. We are so grateful to all our volunteers. You were Amazing! No matter how big or small the job was you stepped up just like Isaiah and said: “Here I am!” What a blessing you were to…

VBS and the Cycle of Change

Wow! Monday is the first day of Vacation Bible School! We are so excited about hosting an in-person VBS this year. Niki has made lots of plans. We have a lot of wonderful volunteers and over 70 children who will be on campus learning about Jesus and how he loves them and how God is always there for them in all circumstances.…

Mindfully Preparing for Summer

It seems almost impossible that we are coming to the close of the month of May and summertime will be here with all the fun and good times summer offers. This year we will be able to travel, attend camps, have social gatherings, cookouts, and many other activities we were not able to do last summer. We are coming into the time…

We will be offering a prayer for our graduates at this Sunday’s service as we have several families who will be celebrating the high school and college graduations of their sons and daughters. And Grace preschool is getting…

Calling All VBS Volunteers

Greetings Grace Family! I am excited about all the events that are beginning to fill the church calendar. Although I had forgotten how many meetings there are, I am grateful we are seeing light at the end of this pandemic tunnel. This past Sunday we began congregational singing after 14 long months (with masks on still). We are looking at other activities…

Exploring the Meaning of Life

I hope you have survived the “Spring forward” of our clocks and have caught up on the sleep you lost last week. I have never liked when we change to daylight savings time. It takes me about a week to get used to it. When my children were young, they struggled to understand why they had to go to bed when it…

Leaning into Divine Thinking

This Sunday marks the second Sunday in Lent. The Grace with Promise team will have participated in the Family Promise Emerald City 5K. Sunday will mark the last day of February. We are already two months into 2021! People are getting their vaccinations slowly but surely and we are seeing an increase in our in-person worship services. While the weather is still…

On Voting

“Choose some wise, understanding and respected men from each of your tribes, and I will set them over you.” Deuteronomy 1:13 (Please note: While the Old Testament typically uses the male pronouns since this was a patriarchal society, please as you are voting choose the best candidate based on their record and abilities not on whether they are male or female.) This…
