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.

Outdoor Worship Service - this Sunday, November 1

Bring your lawn chairs and masks and worship under the big tree in the parking lot. Come early so you have time to get your spot and set up your chair. We will be doing live music and prayer.

New Sermon Series: Reflections on Thankfulness - starting November 8

It seems that each new day we find a new reason to be afraid, uncertain, and worried.  These negative emotions impact our joy, contentment, and generosity. God’s Word provides an antidote for living in fear – Thankfulness! Thankfulness is not an occasional act but a lifestyle that reminds us of God’s presence, brings joy to our daily routines, creates contentment, and motivates us to generosity. Join us for this three part series in the lead up to Thanksgiving Holiday.

Sermon Series: Snagged?

Have you ever felt stuck? Emotionally, spiritually, physically? With all that is going on in the world maybe you are feeling that way right now. Your marriage, relationship with your family, and even in your relationship with God – we all find ourselves from time to time asking the questions, “How did I get here?” And more importantly, “How do I get back on track?” If you resonate with these questions, then our new sermon series SNAGGED? is right for you. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Josh wraps up the series. He will guide us through Galatians 5:7 and the process of getting back on track in our lives.

Spanish Church Grocery Distribution - June 2

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the Spanish Church Grocery Distribution on June 2! Pastor Carlos Grijalva’s wife, Annabelle, wrote of the event:

"We had a total of 51 families that came to the supplies/food distribution that day and several more families that could not make it, but some of our volunteers and us delivered the supplies to them.

I had the blessing to be at the welcoming booth and all of them expressed their gratitude for holding this event. I will say that 85% of the families that were given the distribution were Hispanics and most of them let me know that they were still feeling the challenge of still not working or being back to work with reduced hours. Many of them also did ask to keep them informed if another distribution was going to take place in the future.

One of the highlights of the event, was, of course, the volunteers. They were all awesome. They were all so helpful and it was beautiful to see both churches working together to serve others. Some of ladies and girls that helped me with the diaper distribution, learned some Spanish words here and there, after hearing what the families needed. In the beginning, I had to translate for them in regards to the size needed for the diapers, but I will say that towards the middle of the distribution, they all knew the numbers in Spanish.

We also had the blessing of giving a word of encouragement to many and invited them to connect with Grace and Intimidad. My husband and another leader were mostly in the chaplain area and had the blessing of sharing the good news of the Gospel and even praying for some of them.

Thank you all for making this happen! We are so grateful!!!"
