The hard stuff. The sticky things. The topics you tend to shy away from in conversation, just because or maybe you don't really feel the same with what the Word explains about things our culture and family even tell us to accept. This series, "What About," will conquer some popular yet hard topics of discussion that swirl around our culture. It is important to not just know what the Word says, but also be able to have a conversation with peace. Light is so much better than darkness and the only way we can become a brighter light is through our understanding of the hard things.

December is here! Our new series, "Be Generous"is a value at The Lord's Grace and an example Jesus set for all of us. Being Generous is not just about finances. It is understanding that we have an opportunity to be generous with our time, our love, our forgiveness, gifts, and presence.
God created us to be a light and we can be used by Him through our time and talents.
You see, the generosity of Jesus is everlasting and rooted in love. And as we welcome one of the happiest times of the year it is our prayer here at The Lord's Grace that these messages Wille encourage you in your gifting and shift your perspective on what it means to be generous through the light of Jesus.
The Holy Spirit. 1 of 3 parts in the trinity and sent to accomplish God's work within us. We sing about the Holy Spirit, we talk about it, but do we understand fully what is means to have the Holy Spirit dwell within us. Our series, Ghost Stories: Adventures with the Holy Spirit will take us on a journey of understanding who the Holy Spirit is in Scripture and how critical it is for us to understand the power that has been given to us. Who lives within us, who leads us, who empowers us... the Holy Spirit is present and we are embarking on an adventure to discover what God's word says and how we respond in understanding and prayer.

A white flag is a symbol of surrender. I give up. We give you. You win. We are your captives. In times of battle, as history has shown, a white flag was mandatory to "have" n hand, but victors left it hidden. Why, because they were confident of victory. There has been a shift in our Christian culture to take back was was lost and weak out in victory over situations and circumstances that seem hopeless. It's about perseverance even though we cannot see the light of victory ahead. But HE promises esthete things. Victory and restoration and healing and so much more. This month our series is titled, "Burn the White Flag" and that's exactly what we are going to do!
