This Sunday Grace Family Fellowship WILL NOT MEET at our regular time and place.

Instead, I want to encourage you to attend CrossCurrent Church. They meet in the same building as us at 10:00am (hey, extra sleep!) in the main sanctuary (just down the hall from where we meet).

In the past, we have joined Crosscurrent on Good Friday and Christmas Eve. I’d love for you to experience one of their Sunday services.

I’d like to thank everyone who was involved in last week’s service while we are away. I hope you enjoyed John Lynch.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This Sunday we will have a special guest speaker. He is a nationally renowned author, pastor, speaker, and, well, all-around great guy… I wish he were here in person– but a video is better than nothing!

We are going to see a sermon this week that impacted my life and Christian walk more than any other. John Lynch will share a message that I have actually preached to you before (because it is so powerful)– but he is the best at it. I know that you will enjoy it!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Well, we had a great vacation and appreciate your thoughts and prayers as we traveled.

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of Nehemiah. To prepare, read Nehemiah chapters 4:13-6. We will see another Brick to incorporate into the building projects of our own lives.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Nehemiah Part 12– The Gates of Jerusalem 4

July 8, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

This is the final message in a “mini-series” about the gates that were repaired in Jerusalem during the time of Nehemiah. The last gate restored was the Inspection Gate (or Miphkad Gate). This gate reminds of of judgment that will come one day.

I hope everyone enjoyed the 4th of July– and reflected on the incredible freedoms we enjoy as Americans.

This Sunday we will finish up a “mini-series” on the gates of Jerusalem. We have spent some time looking at the gates that were repaired while Nehemiah was restoring the walls of Jerusalem. Sunday we will look at the final gate: Inspection Gate.

The last 3 gates (Horse, East, Inspection) all can lead us to consider to the return of Jesus and end times events.

 

Inspection (Miphkad) Gate

Matthew 25:31-46; Romans 14:10-12; 1 Corinthians 3:10-15; 2 Corinthians 5:10

I encourage you to read these passages and think about what they might mean in the life of a follower of Jesus.

Make sure you check out Grace2F Happenings below because there are several ministry opportunities coming up!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Grace2F Wednesday Night Bible Study

We’ll be starting this study called  Maturing in Christ: “Called to Disciple” on Wednesday, May 29th. We’ll meet at the same place we meet on Sunday mornings– Hilltop Community Church Fellowship Hall– from 7:00pm to 8:30. The study is six-weeks long so you can come try it out. If you can’t make all six weeks, that’s okay, because the studies can stand alone as well.

Here is a brief description and the weekly topics:

Now that I’m a follower of Jesus, what do I do next? I need to think through my priorities… my relationships… my goals in life. And I need a group of people to help stay the course.

•May 29th–  Under new Management
•June 5th–   Eternal Values
•June 12th–   Kingdom Priorities
•June 19th–   Quiet Time
•June 26–   Servanthood
•July 3rd–   NO GROUP
•July 10th–   Called to be a Witness
I hope that you can be a part of this experience. If you’ve never been to a Bible study/Small group, don’t be worried– just jump in and give it a try!

******************************************

RUSSELL HOUSE MINISTRY
As many of you know, I preach monthly on Sunday afternoons at the Hilltop Gospel Church that meets in the Russell House apartments across First Colonial Road from our church.
I want to invite any one interested in joining me to minister to the residents with a smile, hug, and conversation. Yes, you would have to listen to me twice in one day, but the message is usually shorter and the service is great.
I will be there this Sunday, July 7th. Consider stepping out of your comfort zone and minister to there wonderful folks!
The service begins promptly at 2:00pm and lasts just under an hour. I would love to have you join me and experience the joy of loving on these folks (and being loved in return!)

This message is a third in a look at the gates of Jerusalem during Nehemiah’s time. We can learn a lot about the Christian life form each of the gates that were repaired and restored in Nehemiah 3.
