Real Truth for Real Living

At Grace Church, we’re committed to embedding the Bible into just about everything we do. God’s Word plays a central role in our public worship gatherings because we believe that when God’s Word is explained, God’s voice is heard. 
 
Each sermon series journeys through one book of the Bible at a time, so that we can learn more about God’s character and what it means to be a person of faith from the circumstances, history, and people in each story. Understanding one book of the Bible in a deep way enables us to know God in a fresh way, see ourselves and others as God sees us, and approach life with new wisdom.
 

Stranger Things: The Sermon on the Mount

This summer, we’re exploring Jesus’s sermon that talked about the upside-down nature of the kingdom, which is so different from common ideas of society, that it would have sounded strange to those listening…and still sounds strange to us now.  Although, it couldn’t be more true, and though strange, makes the Kingdom of Jesus good news for everyone who is poor, weak, and outcast from society..

Face to Face: What is Heaven like?

     We continue our series on heaven, Face to Face, through November. In this series, we’re asking and answering a lot of questions.
      What is heaven like? What will we do there? What’s so great about heaven that we would live our lives differently to get there?
      Heaven is one of the Bible’s most vital teachings, but too often we settle for answers from elsewhere. In this series, we unpack the miracle of heaven and why it will satisfy our souls forever—that, in seeing Jesus face to face, we will be finally at home with Him forever.

Extravagant 169

Extravagant: A Brief History of the Generosity of God

We continue Extravagant through October. In this series, we’re discovering the generosity of God, which reaches its heights Jesus’s self-giving. As Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 8:9, “You know the generous grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich.” By the grace of Jesus we are rich, not in money, but in the love and affection of God. Inspired by God’s generosity, we seek to be generous ourselves by learning to walk the same generous road Jesus did!
