Love Your Neighbor this Christmas
This Christmas, you have the opportunity to follow up with a family in our community that came to our Hearty Harvest. We want to follow up with each family by providing them a small Christmas gift and a personal invitation to watch our Christmas Eve service online. We ask that you connect with them by phone, drop the present off at their house, and provide prayer and encouragement if you have the opportunity. You may sign up for more than one family, so please indicate the number of families you want to commit to. Please click the link below to sign up. Thank you!

Sermon Series: Living in the Reality of Jesus' Birth
No other time of the year captures our imagination as much as Christmas: God coming into the world, a baby’s birth that would change the course of human history, the heavens bursting into angelic song, the hope that God will have the last word over sin and brokenness. This season fills our hearts with the wonder that anything is possible, yet Christmas can also be shallow, materialistic, hectic, and lonely. If we are not careful, we can miss the awe of remembering, celebrating, and living in the reality that Jesus offers. This year, we invite you to join us during Advent as we set aside time to focus on what the birth of Jesus means in our daily lives.
Online Christmas Eve Service - December 24

Sermon Series: Jesus & Politics
Once more, Americans are bracing themselves for a polarizing election which will leave our country bitterly divided. Complex moral and political issues are only addressed in thirty-second soundbytes. Incendiary Facebook posts and emails containing partial truths will be forwarded by the millions. People who love each other will find their relationships challenged by people who vote differently than they do. At Grace Church, we believe that following Jesus should be the foundation for a better way. As God’s people we are called to be in unity around the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We invite you to join us as we look to Scripture for timeless solutions for today’s conflicts.
