“They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer… many wonders and miraculous signs were done… All the believers were together and had everything in common. they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts. Praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” — Acts 2:42-47
We just celebrated the Resurrection! WOW! What a powerful time! But as we track a little bit further, what happens next? What about the disciples? What about us? Where do we as disciples go from here? So, what now?
God has a definitive character and nature... and so do we! Our human character is generally flawed and usually shown in behavior through circumstance and situation. The question is: what nature do we reflect? Human character or God’s character? The odds are that we struggle with one, strive for the other and at times tend to fall somewhere in between! The good news is that the Holy Spirit is the great deliverer of God’s character to us. As followers of Jesus, we have the awesome privilege of receiving and emulating His nature over our own. Join me, as we explore 9 characters of God AND hear the real life stories of 9 tremendous women of God, right here from Grace Chapel! We will learn and share in their life, trials, and triumphs!
Sanctity of Human Life Sunday Since 1983, Americans have observed Sanctity of Human Life Sunday (SOHLS) as a day to celebrate the intrinsic value of all human life. This important day also provides an opportunity for pregnancy centers to share about the work they do each day to bring life-affirming resources to their communities and to empower women and men to choose life for their unborn children.
An honest look at what drives our motivations and aspirations as we launch another new year.
How We Think! The Thrill of Victory! Last week we looked deeper in to the lives of our heroes. We saw the humanity in their personal failures (sin) and also in their unwanted happenings (life’s challenges they didn’t ask for). Through that, we learned how much they were just like us! THIS WEEK, we’ll learn what either makes us just like them OR what is setting them apart from us... we’ll explore... What defines a win? A Victory is much closer than we think! We CAN do...
