January 10th News

First of all, if you haven’t checked out our website go to www.grace2f.org grace2flogo-300x150

This week we will continue to look at the life of Abram (I’m just calling him Abram because God hasn’t changed his name yet– that’s still to come). Last week we had an extensive review– going from Genesis 11:27 all the way through Genesis 15. If you missed last week, you’ll want to go to our website (www.grace2f.org) and listen to last week’s message (just click on “Message Audio” and you can listen or download).

This week we come to another incredible story in the life of Abram. It is found in Genesis 16. As you read it consider these questions:

  • How would you feel if you were Abrahm and Sarai?
  • What would you do in their situation?
  • Is this a “high point” or a “low point” in their story?
  • What could they (Abram and Sarai) have done differently?
  • What are the consequences of their actions?

Interestingly, this passage has significance to us today– significance that plays out in the news headlines every morning.

Be sure to check out the up-coming events below!


Looking forward to Sunday,

Grace and peace,




We’ve been talking about an awesome marriage conference that’s going to be held right here in our backyard at the Founder’s Inn on February 12-14.

I want to encourage EVERY MARRIED COUPLE to consider attending. The best news is that you can even get a deal (that woke the husband up!). That’s right, register before January 18th and you save 50% off regular registration fees (it’s a 2 for 1– ya can’t beat that!)

This is a great opportunity to strengthen your marriage and your walk with Christ. You know that I don’t beat a lot of drums and tell you things that you “ought” to do– so please understand how important I think this is. Our marriages are  incredibly important, holy, sacred things– let’s take time together to invest in them!

Here’s what you need to get the information:

If couples register for the Weekend to Remember January 4th through January 18 they get 2 for 1:
Meaning this will give them the $129/couple rate.

They will want to register at: www.familylife.com/groups/extravagantlove
As they register, they will need to enter INVITE as the promotion code.  This will give them the $129/couple rate.


Scott and Melissa Ringo are group leaders and highly recommend this weekend. Sara and I will be there and we hope you can join us!
