Who We Are
We are a church family committed to joyful worship, growing in grace, and the extension of God's "good news" to those living in our city and its surrounding communities. We believe in the inspiration and authority of God's Word and believe the best expression of that is to be found in the Reformed-Covenantal understanding of scripture. We deeply desire to follow Jesus as his disciples which can only occur as we increasingly love our God and our neighbor. We confess that we are spiritually worse than we think we are but we also know that God's grace is far greater than we ever dreamed possible. It would be our joy to have you join us in worship this Lord's Day. Come and experience God's grace at Grace!

This Sunday, January 21, I will be preaching on the silent holocaust - why it is not just wrong but evil. But we will also talk about God's grace and mercy in the midst of the devastation. Pray that God will give me grace to be bold yet tender for in almost every congregation in the land there is one or more who have had an abortion and likely feels the pangs of guilt and shame especially if they have not yet been gripped by the gospel. Thank you! THE HOLOCAUST CONTINUES! Destroying God’s Tiniest Image Bearers * * * Psalm 139:13-16 INTRODUCTION – Where do things stand today? I. GOD IS THE CREATOR OF EVERY CHILD CONCEIVED – Vss. 13-16 A. Every child is uniquely special and God’s image bearer B. To destroy an infant in the womb is demonic in nature II. GOD HAS ORDAINED THE LIFESPAN OF EVERY HUMAN – Vs. 16b A. Abortion snuffs out an entire lifespan B. Why doesn’t God stop the holocaust? C. Abortion is nothing less than modern version of child sacrifice, vss 28-30 III. YET, GOD IS MERCIFUL & FULL OF GRACE, Matthew 11:28 A. The Gospel is “good news” for those who have aborted their child B. There is room at the cross for all sinners LIFE TAKEAWAYS – WHAT CAN YOU DO? • You must pray consistently for the demise of abortion in this country & fight for it. • You can write or email elected representatives anytime a piece of legislation is coming up that limits abortions or is pro-life on both the state & federal levels. • You can give to the organizations on the front lines of the battle. • You can keep yourself knowledgeable in the debate. • You can volunteer at our local Pregnancy Center. • You can bring new people to the Pregnancy Center banquet each year. • You can counsel someone thinking about an abortion & let them know what God says. Satan is an angel of lies & death – you be an angel of light to some confused & scared woman.

Here's the sermon outline for this Sunday, January 14th. If you're an anxious person or worry wart type then this one is particularly up your alley. NO WORRIES! Part 2 God’s Comfort In the Anxieties of Life Matthew 6:24-34 I. THE IMPERATIVE UNCOVERED – Vs. 25 A. A Simple Command B. A Rational Logic II. THE ILLUSTRATIONS UNPACKED – Vss. 26-30 A. Worry is Foolish, vs. 26 B. Worry is Useless, vs. 27 C. Worry is Ridiculous, vss 28-30 III. THE ILLUSION UNMASKED, vss 31-32 IV. THE ISSUE UNFOLDED, vss 33-34 LIFE TAKEAWAYS Worry is irrational when the Creator & Sustainer of all life is your Father. So what has you worried and why? Is that worry logical and reasonable or just unbelief? Are you seeking first the Kingdom of God & His righteousness? If not, what will you do to change your life’s direction day by day? Why do you fear what your Father in heaven has under control? Does that make sense to you? Ask Him now to remove fear with His love for “perfect love casts out all fear.”

Christmas is over but a New Year awaits should our Savior not return in 2017. That means, among other things, another Sunday of worship, praise and adoration of our Triune God. And as you see the news there is much that is concerning from N. Korea to the Middle East and a whole lot more. 40 million (at least) Americans are on some type of medication for stress, anxiety and related illnesses. And those are the people we know about. But Christians can struggle with these things in their lives as well. So, I thought it might be helpful to preach two messages (Dec. 31 & Jan. 14) entitled "No Worries." Here's the outline... NO WORRIES! Part 1 God’s Comfort In the Anxieties of Life Matthew 6:24-34 I. THE REASON FOR THE “THEREFORE” – Vs. 25 links with vs. 24 A. The Comfort Begins with the Commitment B. The Principle Before Us, Matthew 4:8-10 II. THE REDIRECTION, A THEOLOGY OF “NO WORRIES” – Vss. 25-34 A. The Imperative Uncovered, Vs. 25 Part 2 Scheduled for January 14, 2018 LIFE TAKEAWAYS What are you most anxious about & how does that negatively affect you & others? Are you consciously responding to Jesus’ command not to worry? If not, why? What will you do this week to rest in your Savior & His sovereign care of you no matter what? YOUR NOTES & THOUGHTS ON APPLYING GOD’S WORD TO YOUR LIFE
