For the last two weeks, we’ve been talking about spiritual gifts and how they relate to the body of Christ– the church. I hope by now you understand that every believer has at least one spiritual gifts and probably several.

This week will will explore the way to discover you’re spiritual gifts and how this is helped when you are involved with a group of other believers in a church. We’ll look at the specific gifts from Scripture (1 Corinthians 12, Romans 12:1-8, Ephesians 4:1-14, and 1 Peter 4:8-11) and how they can contribute to the unity and care of the rest of the body.

So join us this Sunday. We gather at 9:00am and start around 9:15am.

 

 

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Last week we learned that believers receive some incredible engagement gifts when we are united with Jesus.  These gifts provide supernatural power so that we can be a part of building up the Church with God. Paul calls them spiritual gifts— and they’re pretty important.

That’s why we all need to understand what spiritual gifts are all about and how we can use them to benefit our church and surrounding community. This is a beautiful launching point for ministry and service and a vital topic to deal with as we relate to each other and the world.

To prepare for Sunday, re-read 1 Corinthians 12 (that’s what we studied last week) and then read Romans 12:1-8, Ephesians 4:1-14, and 1 Peter 4:8-11. I believe that this is a timely topic for our church– and an important step in our growth.
Join us Sunday as we learn more about the incredible spiritual gifts God has given to build up his bride– the Church ! I encourage you to make every effort to be there… As we learned last week, the body of Christ is not the same without you!

Also, check our GRACE2F HAPPENINGS below for the PIN Ministry dates.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Last week we learned that Jesus is the Groom and the Church is his Bride– and one day there will be a cosmic wedding that will rock the universe. As followers of Christ we are not just invited, we will be standing at the altar!

This week, we will learn that believers receive some incredible engagement gifts when we are united with Jesus.  These gifts provide supernatural power so that we can be a part of building up the Church with God. You can read about them in 1 Corinthians chapter 12. They are also talked about in Romans 12, Ephesians 4, and 1 Peter 4. Paul calls them spiritual gifts— and they’re pretty important.

Join us Sunday as we look at 1 Corinthians 12 and learn about spiritual gifts!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

I want to thank everyone for welcoming my friends Craig and Jonni Snyder last week. They had a great time meeting all of you– and I hope you enjoyed the time with them on Saturday and Craig’s message on Sunday.

This week we will celebrate the Lord’s Supper with a service that will finish up our series called What Am I Worth. We will focus once again on God’s dynamic, aggressive, beautiful, gentle, everlasting, and unimaginable love for us. We will see that God uses marriage as a metaphor for our relationship with him throughout Scripture. And, unlike the marriages we may see and experience on earth, the marriage between God and his bride (the church– the body of believers) lasts forever… It is so incredible, it destroys the phrase “Till death do us part.”

So come to hear about a wedding this Sunday… A wedding for you. To prepare, you can look at Ephesians 5:22-33.

Make sure to look at Grace2F Happenings below to see how you can help us care for the facility God had provided for us.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
