five-loaves-of-bread-and-two-fishThis week we continue our study of the Gospel of Mark by reading Mark 6:30-44. In this passage we see the story of Jesus feeding 5000 men (probably meaning at least 15,000 people!) with five loaves of bread and two fish.

Interestingly, this miracle is the only one that is recorded in all four gospels.

Most of us have heard this story before– but I think there are some amazing principles that can encourage us as we live our lives today.

Check it out and come Sunday.

We will also be celebrating the Lord’s Supper (Communion) together.

Make sure to read the announcements below…

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Happy Fall everyone!

I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but today it is absolutely gorgeous in Virginia Beach. Sunny, clear, a crisp 60 degrees. Amazingly, Halloween is just around the corner-grace2flogo-300x150– time sure flies, huh?

This week we will continue our study in the Gospel of Mark by reading Mark 6:14-29. In this passage we discover the fate of a character we met in the beginning of Mark’s Gospel (Mark1:1-11). John the Baptist was the one who prepared the way for the ministry of Jesus. He lived in the wilderness, preached a message of repentance, and baptized Jesus. But we discover that his life ends violently at the hands of a selfish, cruel ruler.

As we look at this story we wrestle with an age old question: How come bad stuff happens to good people. But even before that, we see another question– one Herod must answer (and so do we): Who is Jesus?

How do you answer that question? How do you think most people answer that question? I think a case could be made that the question “Who is Jesus?” is the most important question ever asked.

That’s what we’re going to talk about because you must answer that question before you can begin to handle why bad stuff happens to good people.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week we will continue our study in the Gospel of Mark by looking at Mark 6:1-13. In this passage there are two different stories. First, Jesus returns to his home town and we see how those who knew Jesus the best respond to his growing ministry. Then we see Jesus sending his disciples out to minister on their own.grace2flogo-300x150

I also want to remind you that we try to help out Hilltop Community Church by donating necessary items to reduce costs. Here are some things that you could bring in for all of us to use:

1) Toilet paper

2) Paper towels

3) Styrofoam coffee cups

7) Gold

Okay, the last one is a joke (although if you want to bring some gold in that would be great!). This is a way to keep expenses down and also meet the needs of all of us who use the facility.

Finally, look below to see up-coming ministry opportunities with PIN Ministry.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Well, the rains have stopped here in Virginia Beach (at least temporarily) and we are enjoying somgrace2flogo-300x150e spectacular fall weather!

This week at Grace2F, we will continue our study of the Gospel of Mark. Last week we looked at Mark 5:1-20 and saw Jesus change someone from a “man of the tombs” to a man of life.

In this weeks passage, Jesus encounters two more people and changes their lives forever. We will read Mark 5:21-43 and learn about a synagogue ruler named Jairus and a women who suffered with a severe health issue. Both come to Jesus looking for answers– and both experience a miracle.

I encourage you to read this week’s passage and hear for yourself what God wants you to hear. Try to see what these two people have in common– and how they are different.

You can also be praying for Bob and Sarah Linsly and their family this weekend (Bob is part of the music team– the funky guitar dude). Their son, Bobby, is getting married to Amanda this Saturday at Hilltop Community Church.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
