Elder Update

2020 has been quite the unsettling year. There have been many inconveniences and hindrances to life and church life. It has necessitated many adjustments. As time has gone on, many of our ministries are back in full swing, flexing within guidelines. We encourage you to fellowship, interact, and do the one another’s, exercising wisdom as you honor God and love one another. Attached here is a fuller statement from our elders on “God, His Church, and Governing Authorities”. 

Weekly Updates

October 30, 2020

Grace Church family,

Do you have anger issues? We all want to present ourselves to God as living sacrifices, being transformed by the renewing of our minds, by God’s Spirit, through His Word. But sometimes we just get angry, don’t we? What is wrong with us? Yes, we are sinful and depraved, but we cannot use that as an excuse to run over people relationally.

On Sunday, in Ecclesiastes 7:7-14 we will see what it means to live wisely to please God, and how our inner life and outer actions play into it. Especially, it addresses our tendency to become angry in our hearts and lash out at others as a result. We are all in the same boat, God is gracious and merciful, and change is possible! Praise God.

Finally, as your elders lead through these tumultuous times, in our efforts to shepherd God’s flock amongst us most appropriately and be consistent in our messaging, we want to make sure what we are saying is consistent among our leadership and throughout our ministries.

To clarify, we are asking people at Grace Church events to please consider social distancing guidelines and others around you, and please be extra conscious to use wisdom and judgment to best navigate these considerations when at church. Many of our ministries are meeting outdoors which gives even greater flexibility. We realize there are nuances and desire to be balanced, reasonable, and exercise wisdom.

We continue to adjust and fine-tune, being resolute in our goal to shepherd the flock most appropriately and effectively and to honor God as we do so.

Be praying for our worship services and for the preaching, for the Word to go out with clarity and open hearts to receive it.

In Christ’s strength and for His glory,

Mike

October 27, 2020

Grace Church Family,

On Sunday in Ecclesiastes 7:1-6 we saw that death is a preacher giving us crucial life-lessons. We do not eagerly anticipate funerals, yet we learn from them.

7 life-lessons from a funeral: 

  1. Realize how much your reputation matters. Do not let Christ’s name be blasphemed.          
  2. Know why death is better than birth. A Christian’s deathday is God’s promise fulfilled.
  3. Grasp the full effects of the Fall. Every funeral anticipates your own. 
  4. Live in light of death and eternity. A Christian rejoices in Christ’s presence. 
  5. Treasure comforting Christian community. Yearn to be with your family in Christ.
  6. Receive loving rebuke as a gift. Listen to those who speak the truth in love.
  7. Determine to die well in light of the Gospel. You only die well if you find life in Christ.

My dear friends, please take these things to heart as you seek to be satisfied by God’s sovereignty.

Have a great day. I’m praying for you!

In Christ’s Love,

Mike

October 23, 2020

Grace Church Family,

On Sunday in Ecclesiastes 7:1-6 we come face to face with something no one wants to deal with: a funeral. It’s one of the toughest times for anyone who loses a loved one to go through and a funeral is not something that people eagerly anticipate attending. No one sits around hoping and waiting for an invitation to someone’s funeral.

We would much rather go to a celebration or a birthday party. Yet, death, dying, and funerals are normal parts of life that none can escape. We see in these verses that death is a preacher par excellence. As we shall see Sunday, as part of the process of being satisfied by God’s sovereignty, we learn some key life lessons from death.

Thanks for sharing your life and fellowshipping around the Word and prayer!

Have a great day. I’m praying for you!

In Christ’s Love,

Mike

P.S. Thanks to so many who are attending 1st and 3rd services. Keep up the good work! Also, remember we want you to commit to being at two services on Sundays once things open up: attend a worship service, then either a Bible class or serve somewhere.

October 20, 2020

Grace Church Family,

On Sunday, in Ecclesiastes 6:7-12, we thought hard about being satisfied by God’s sovereignty. It’s the appropriate response to our great God. I don’t know about you, but several times in the last few days it’s been the best reminder for me. I cannot have, know, or control everything; but praise God, He has, knows, and controls everything!

I love what God is doing in our midst! There’s so much good going on. Thanks for sharing your life and the Word and prayer with us! On Sundays, try 1st or 3rd service to help balance out attendance numbers, and commit to being at two services as things open up. Go to a worship service, and attend a Bible class or serve somewhere.

Have a great week. I’m praying for you!

In Christ's strength and for His glory, 

Mike

October 16, 2020

Grace Church Family,

It is so easy to try to compensate for our limitations and overcome them rather than embrace them. In fact, many see it as weak to embrace limitations. But that is exactly what we will be pointed to on Sunday in Ecclesiastes 6:7-12 as we consider being satisfied by God’s sovereignty. It’s not laziness, it’s not irresponsibility, it’s our appropriate response to our sovereign God.

On Sunday, please consider attending 1st or 3rd service to balance our attendance numbers under the tent. 2nd service is ballooning! And, please be mindful of noise levels on campus as services are going on. Thanks for your help with these things as we worship and fellowship. I love you and thank God for your faithful attendance and service on Sundays and throughout the week!

Have a great day. I’m praying for you!

In Christ’s Love,

Mike

Grace Church Family,

This past Sunday, in a very sobering passage of Scripture (Eccl. 6:1-6) Solomon describes the kind of person that doesn’t acknowledge God or His gifts. The resulting sad circumstance is described in intensely provocative terms. He says that person would be better off dead. It’s not low-road negativity though, it’s a positively compelling case for living surrendered and devoted to God. God sovereignly allows enjoyment to those who acknowledge Him. There is no joy, rest, or life apart from Christ. Sweet truth to bolster our souls.

Lastly, thank you for faithfully attending and serving on Sundays and throughout the week! It’s sweet to see all the great ministry and so many relationships flourishing. Two quick favors I’d like to ask: 1) On Sunday mornings, please be mindful of noise levels on campus as services are going on under the tent, and, 2) Please consider attending 1st or 3rd service this Sunday to balance our attendance numbers under the tent. Basically, 2nd hour is ballooning! Thanks for your help with both these things as we worship and fellowship.

Have a great day. I’m praying for you!

In Christ’s Love,

Mike

October 9, 2020

Grace Church Family,

I have 2 things for you: a preview of Sunday’s sermon and a statement from our elders.

This Sunday we are entering Ecclesiastes chapter 6 and a very sobering passage of Scripture. Verses 1-6 describe the kind of person that doesn’t acknowledge God or His gifts. What results is a tragic circumstance that Solomon describes in intense and provocative terms. He literally says that someone who doesn’t acknowledge God would be better off dead. Instead of low-road negativity though, we see a positively compelling case made for being devoted to God.

2020 has been quite the unsettling year.  There have been many inconveniences and hindrances to life and church life. It has necessitated many adjustments. As time has gone on, many of our ministries are back in full swing, flexing within guidelines. We encourage you to fellowship, interact, and do the one another’s, exercising wisdom as you honor God and love one another. Attached is a fuller statement from our elders on “God, His Church, and Governing Authorities”. (link).

I’ll see you Sunday under the tent. Bring a friend or two with you!

October 6, 2020

Grace Church Family,

On Sunday we focused on Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 and “Enjoying God’s Good Gifts”. To do that we need to gratefully receive His good gifts, be humbly content with His good gifts, and stay joyfully God-centered. When God is our portion we can enjoy His good gifts.

How might you follow that up with some appropriate worship with reverence and awe? How might you thank God today?

Also, we practiced and celebrated Believer’s Baptism on Sunday, with seven people spanning the age spectrum giving testimony of their faith in Christ, and being baptized in obedience to Christ. What an encouragement that was! Praise God!

For Jesus and the Gospel,

Mike
