New Sanctuary- The Story of Grace

Grace has been in existence for approximately 18 years. We started in 1990 and became a "church" in 1991. We have had four pastors over our short life. Over the past few years we have tried to really push ourselves to follow God's vision for our community and church. We have tried things that have failed. We have succeeded with things that probably should have failed but with the Grace of God, we press on. Over the past two years we have gathered together to discuss a new sanctuary. I deeply appreciate all the prayers, ideas and conversations over this time to help us focus our efforts and make a clear statement of our future intent. The name of our sermon series this month is "It's Time To Grow". We have seen a 10% jump in attendance this past year and we continue to see new faces and new members join. So, knowing that in the next two years we will outgrow our current facility we are asking every person who calls Grace their home or who is willing to help Grace achieve this vision to call upon God and say- "Lord, what would you have me do?"
Maybe with the economy right now you are a little worried. Maybe you are not sure if this is the right thing to do. Maybe you are just fearful for the future. All I ask is that you pray. Take a moment every day for a week and ask that question. Lord, what would you have me do?
We continue this weekend and we will be discussing miracles. Please join us and remember on this beautiful day, go in peace and go with God.
