This week we will continue our series What It Means to be a Disciple of Jesus.

Last week we talked about how a disciple is a SERVANT. This Sunday we will see that a idisciple is also a MESSENGER with a very important and specific message.

To prepare read Romans 10:8-17.

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

November 22, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: What It Mean To Be a Disciple of Jesus

Special: MISSIONARY

In the message, missionary Frank Dunne of REN Group talks about the mandate to take the gospel to the ends of the earth. Frank has been reaching the people of Tibet fro several years and challenges us all to consider what it means to make disciples “of all nations”– even from a little gathering in Virginia Beach!

This week we will continue our series What It Means to be a Disciple of Jesus.

I want to thank Frank Dunne for filling in while we were away at my niece’s wedding in Tampa (thanks for your prayers– we had an incredible time!). I listened to his message and it was very powerful, challenging, and inspiring. I hope to post it in the next couple of days and encourage you to listen to it though the “Messages” section on our website… If you have never been to our website it is at www.grace2f.org. It is up dated each week with messages, notes, and announcements.

This Sunday we will see that a disciple is also a SERVANT. I know that we all know we are supposed to be servants– but, if we are honest, we often approach church and even Jesus not as a servant but as a serve-me. This will lead to problems and steal a great deal of joy from your life.

To prepare read Mark 10:35-45.

We will also hear a bit about the results of our pledge drive and the vision for Grace2F moving forward. I know that this is a busy time, but THIS IS AN IMPORTANT SUNDAY TO BE AT CHURCH!

HOPE TO SEE YA’LL THERE…

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week our family will be traveling to Tampa Florida for the wedding of my oldest niece Erin. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to officiate the wedding and look forward to being with the entire family. Please pray for us and this time.

On Sunday, Frank Dunne is going to follow up last weeks’ message on being a “neighbor” by sharing some of his experiences as a missionary to the people of Tibet. He has some really great stories and will provide a practical context to discover how disciples can be neighbors all over the world.

I want to encourage you to come Sunday to get a vision that extends beyond the walls of our church. To prepare, read Luke 10:1-24.

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Discipleship Part 5: Neighbor

November 12, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: What It Mean To Be a Disciple of Jesus

Part 5: Neighbor

In part 5 of this series we see that a disciple is called to interact with people outside of the church in a very special way. Jesus reveals this truth in the story of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10

This week we will continue our series What It Means to Be a Disciple of Jesus by seeing that a disciple is also a NEIGHBOR.

We’ve seen that a disciple is a FRIEND and have used that characteristic to think about how we, as Christians, are to relate to each other in the church.

As we think about being a NEIGHBOR, the focus becomes how we relate to those outside the church. Jesus says a great deal about this throughout his ministry, but we will focus on a particular story that illustrates this point very dramatically and effectively.

To prepare, read the story known as The Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37. Most of us are familiar with this story, but the implications of Jesus’ words here are radical and transforming!

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Discipleship Part 4B: Friend-Anger

November 7, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: What It Mean To Be a Disciple of Jesus

Part 4B: Friend-Anger

In part 4 of this series we talked about how a disciple is a Friend (unfortunately, we have some technical difficulties with the recording).

As I was thinking about the idea of being a Friend, I started thinking about a challenge to friendship… anger. So we did a Part 4B to discuss the issue of anger.
