Easter 2014- God’s Big Story in Four Acts

April 22, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Easter Sunday 2014
Many times people come to church on Christmas and Easter to remember incredible moments when God connects with his creation in a very special and intimate way. But, really, we are just seeing scenes in a bigger story that has cosmic ramifications.

What is that bigger story? In this message we see what Easter means to us and the universe by understanding the reason and results of Jesus going to the cross and rising from the dead.

In the last message in our study of Nehemiah, we see that the building project has a greater IMPACT than just walls around a city. This kind of IMPACT is available for all Christians.

This Sunday we are finishing our study of the Book of Nehemiah…

We are going to see Nehemiah and his country men finish their incredible building project. And we’ll see the result is much more than just the protection of the city of Jerusalem.

Come hear about the last Brick Nehemiah has for and the building projects in our lives.

 

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This Sunday we are continuing our study of the Book of Nehemiah…

Last week in Nehemiah 5, we saw that Nehemiah and the people of Jerusalem had to deal with internal opposition. This is often more painful and challenging than external opposition because we are often caught by surprise when the opposition comes from those closest to us.

We also looked at 4 questions from Nehemiah 5:

1) Where is the opposition coming from?

2) What are the problems this opposition creates?

3) According the Nehemiah, what is the root of these problems?

4) According to Nehemiah, what is the result of these problems?

This week we will focus on the last 2 questions. Read Nehemiah 5 and see if you can find the answer. I’ll give you a hint: the answer to questions 3 & 4 is found in a single verse.

Also, I want to thank everyone who was able to attend the first official “Church Meeting” of Grace Family Fellowship last night. God has been building, guiding, and directing us for the last seven years and he will continue to do so now and in the future. He is faithful to complete the work he has started in the church!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Nehemiah Part 15– Brick of AWARENESS

August 15, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

In Nehemiah 5 we see some new opposition to the restoration of the walls of Jerusalem. It is a kind of opposition we all face (and even create) with those closest to us. How do we respond to the internal opposition that can devastate the building projects to which God has called us?

This Sunday we are continuing our study of the Book of Nehemiah by looking at Nehemiah chapter 5.

We have seen that Nehemiah and his country men have faced great opposition in the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem. Last week we saw how Nehemiah adjusted his original plan to  meet this opposition– and we must be ready to adjust our plans as well.

In Nehemiah 5, we see some more opposition that Nehemiah must face. As you read this chapter, be thinking about these questions:

1) Where is the opposition coming from?

2) What are the problems this opposition creates?

3) According the Nehemiah, what is the root of these problems?

4) According to Nehemiah, what is the result of these problems?

We will see that Nehemiah 5 is very much like many of the issues and challenges in our lives– and, hopefully, we will see that these challenges can be overcome with the next brick Nehemiah hands us.

Also– we will have a GRACE FAMILY FELLOWSHIP CHURCH MEETING this Wednesday, August 14th in the Fellowship Hall of Hilltop Community Church. I would like everyone who calls this church “home” to attend to discuss our goals as a church and evaluate how we are doing in meeting those goals. This is a time for all of us to prayerfully consider where God is leading us.

Looking forward to Sunday (and Wednesday)!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Nehemiah Part 14– Brick of ADJUSTMENT

August 5, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

In Nehemiah 4:12-23, we see the 12th brick that can help us as we try to build or rebuild the walls of our lives– the Brick of ADJUSTMENT. How can we make adjustments  in our lives to overcome the opposition we face.
