As we enter our Holiday season, we will begin a new series called THANK.FULL. Amidst the CHANGE we have come to learn and see while continuing our focus on our theme TEND, we recognize PRAISE is a critical component to our honoring and thanking God for what He continues to do for us and through us. Let us look towards all the many things that fill us with thanks.
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.
We thought we had a plan. We thought we knew how it would turn out... and then something happened, something changed. Wow.
That is the thing about change. It comes unexpectedly sometimes or not quite how we envisioned. Change doesn’t have to bad, rather our response to that CHANGE is what matters. This month, our series will focus on the theme of change and how some of God’s Heros in the scripture dealt with it and how we can modify to change too.
God speaks to us in incredible ways and sometimes inspires us to get that WORD out. During this series, we will be sharing some of those "stirrings," as we prepare for a new season at The Lord's Grace.
Patriarchs. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Men who God used in different ways to fulfill His promises that paved the way for the growth of His people and the coming of His Son Jesus. We honor the men of our faith and the father's today whom God has blessed us with.
We are all UnQualified and over the next 5 weeks, we will be studying how to come to terms with the good, the bad, and the unmentionable in our lives- and learning how to let God use us in spite of our mess. No longer to do we have to be disappointed in our failures our weaknesses. We know God has created us for purpose, it's time to embrace the mess and open our hearts to healing and serving a God who does ALL THINGS for His GOOD!
What is the difference between C2C. To consume or to contribute? As Christians, it is important we understand what a difference life with Jesus will be if we choose to contribute rather than just only consume. This series is one we know will bless you and help you to further connect with others within our church while TENDING to your self.
This series Raised to LIFE will focus on the power of the cross and the sacrifice that was made in our name. Bottom line sin is string, but Jesus is STRONGER!!! Our shame was great, but Jesus is GREATER!!! We have the opportunity to not just overcome but pursue the calling God has placed over our lives but accepting HIM into our hearts and taking the stand to turn away from sin and be raised from life.
We will discover that God has placed YOU in our CHURCH to serve and care for others, to pray, learn, and grow together all for the glory of God!
TEND. When we hear this word, it throws us off a bit. It isn't a word necessarily used in our vocabulary. When we tend, it literally means to care for or look after; give one's attention to. So this year we are taking this unused word and making it our theme for 2016. Join us as we discover how badly we all need TENDING to from the only true comforter of Jesus.
Every season has a struggle we may not see and is often shaped by what we say. Yet in every time and season, there is a stregnth that we can seize. As we joinery through this Christmas Season together let us not compare our lives and stories to others, but see how Jesus is the same to us all. Loving us unconditionally and giving us what we need to pursue and press through each time and season upon us.
