PAY ATTENTION!

Dear Grace Community:Pay attention! We often hear this when someone is warning us to avoid a collision or accident. But what if paying attention is the best advice for maintaining a deep and meaningful walk with Jesus? Only by looking for evidence of the work of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives will we be able to witness God’s miracles and…

We Have Everything We Need!

Dear Grace Community: Have you ever noticed how creative we human beings can be at finding excuses for inaction? We may say that we don’t have time, or that we are not smart enough or talented enough, or that we just do not believe in our ability to succeed in navigating the challenges of our lives. We have all, at times, leaned…

New Year – New Opportunities

As we begin a new year, it is a great time to get involved in the life of your church. If you have ever considered starting a small group or Bible study, we have a great resource in Right Now Media. Every church member can get access to this Netflix style library of educational, inspiring, Biblical videos. If you have not ever…

Reflecting on 2019

This goal sounds easy enough, but the challenge lies in making time for God first, before tackling all…

What Does it Mean to be Remembered?

Thank you for your prayers for our Kairos team as we served in the prison last weekend. The Holy Spirit showed up and those of us who went thinking that we would bless others came away experiencing renewal and joy beyond anything that we gave. This is the way it works in God’s economy! This Sunday, November 24, I will be sharing…

Being a Church Devoted to Prayer

Recently, someone asked a pastor what she would request of her congregation if she could have anything. Her immediate response was “I would request a church devoted to prayer.” What a faithful response! We must never underestimate the power of prayer. So, I have some prayer requests. I am serving on a Kairos prison ministry team from Thursday, November 14 through Sunday,…

Recognizing Our Veterans

We have another weekend of ministry opportunities here at Grace. The Country Store is scheduled for Saturday morning in the fellowship hall, and we welcome volunteers for set-up on Friday at 6 pm. This is a quarterly event at Grace, and we are blessed to be able to provide cleaning supplies, pet food, and several other household items that many people cannot…
