Drive Thru Trunk or Treat!

Sunday afternoon, October 25, was our first Drive Thru Trunk or Treat! Pastor David, Sue Keith, Tommy Bishop, Sally Summers, and Karen Hibbard enjoyed visits from the cutest “spooks” ever as they rode through our driveway and received generous treat bags of candy and toys! Much appreciation goes to our church family for donations of candy, toys, and prizes. Also, thank you to David and Sue Keith for all the fall decorations.




November is Loyalty Month.

November is Loyalty Month. It reminds us of our promise to give our best to Jesus. What is God asking of us? We are to consider our promise to support Grace with our tithe and gifts to continue our mission in 2021. Please be in prayer about your contribution.

October 4, 2020 Virtual Sermon from Pastor David

Philippians 3:1-14 "Rise & Shine: The Wake-up Call"

As we think about goals, Paul tells us that before his conversion his only goal was to persecute anyone who was of the Jesus sect, and he was extremely successful. Thank goodness for God’s awesome wake-up call that changed Saul to Paul.

September 27, 2020 Virtual Sermon from Pastor David

Sunday, September 27, 2020 Philippians 2:1-13 Emptying Ourselves to be Filled with Christ

Click below to see the Sept. 27, 2020 Virtual Sermon 

https://studio.youtube.com/video/kJMIIhmqcYg/edit/basic

Paul reminds of that too many times we are so filled with ourselves that we can’t see beyond ourselves. He reminds us, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.” Wow! We might think he’s hitting below the belt, but whatever it takes to get our attention, so we live more like Christ, we need it. As Christians many people are listening to and watching us. Who do they see? Our responsibility is to allow God to work in us so we can live out His good purpose and others see Him and not us.

Palm Sunday Organ Selections from Tommy Bishop

When our extremely talented Organist and Choirmaster, Tommy Bishop, told us that this past Palm Sunday was his first Palm Sunday in 44 years that he had not played "The Holy City" or "The Palms," we had to correct that. We hope that these selected Palm Sunday songs provide you a bit of comfort and peace on this Maundy Thursday. Please click the link below to see the video.
