Elder Updates

December 23rd, 2021

In light of recent communications from the State of California, the elders of Grace Church are aware that there are a variety of perspectives regarding issues related to COVID. There are different views with respect to masks, vaccines, what the government directs, and how to biblically respond to governing authorities. We encourage each person and household to prayerfully consider what the government has said in light of what the Bible says and make choices with the aim to honor the Lord and the body of Christ at Grace Church. Please continue to be sensitive to the realities of health risks when we gather and make the choice to livestream our services if you are ill or have symptoms related to COVID. We have provided options of attending services inside, outside, and online. We encourage you to choose based on what is best for you, your family, and others, acting humbly in light of your convictions, pursuing peace with the body of Christ, and obedience to Jesus in all you do.  

We encourage you to study God’s Word (Phil. 2:1-10Rom. 13:1-72 Cor. 5:14-151 Peter 2:13-17Titus 3:1-11), and read what the government says here, as well as these helpful articles here (Grace Community Church) and here (9Marks).

Weekly Updates

9/13/22

It is a painful reality, yet true: The enemy of your peace is not the people or the problems in your life, it is your pride. We need to keep coming back to Jesus, in repentance, faith, and obedience.

In 2 Thessalonians 3:16, Paul prays for peace for Christ’s Church. May Jesus grant you peace in all of the problems and persecution of life. That Jesus would source, supply, sustain peace, and remain with His people all the time, in every circumstance.

Specifically, Paul prayed,

  1. That Jesus would personally source peace. The Lord of peace Himself.
  2. That Jesus would permanently supply peace. Grant you peace at all times.
  3. That Jesus will plentifully sustain peace. In every way.
  4. That Jesus will personally remain with His people. The Lord be with you all.

What sweet assurance that what Paul prays for God has promised and will provide. Enjoy it today!

In Christ,

Mike
