Pastor's Desk

Remind me Lord that your house, and this church body are a gift given as shelter from the storms of everyday life. A safe harbor. Help us Lord to not take that gift, nor one another, for granted. Father, foster a passion within us to draw near to you and, as we do, experience the kind of biblical fellowship at Grace that will also draw others.
If We Are The Body
Bill Hybels once stated that there is nothing like the local church when it is working right.

“Its beauty is indescribable. Its power is breathtaking. Its potential is unlimited. It comforts the grieving and heals the broken in the context of community. It builds bridges to seekers and offers truth to the confused. It provides resources for those in need and opens its arms to the forgotten, the downtrodden, the disillusioned. It breaks the chains of addictions, frees the oppressed, and offers belonging to the marginalized of this world. Whatever the capacity for human suffering, the church has a greater capacity for healing and wholeness.” Hybels concludes, “Still to this day, the potential of the local church is almost more than I can grasp. No other organization on earth is like the church. Nothing even comes close.”
