An Encouragement to Stay Faithful to God’s Call

Sometimes we keep doing what we are doing because God called us to do it, not because we are popular, the work is easy, or even that we are being well received at the time. Being obedient to the call of God is sometimes painful, unpopular, difficult, and seemingly unrewarded (at the time). [...] Continue Reading…

Fostering an Attitude of Team Spirit (Whatever it Takes)

One of the most damaging expressions in a team environment is the phrase “that’s not my job” or “that’s not my area of responsibility”. Thankfully I have never heard that said at Grace Community Church. Sadly it is far too common in organizations that claim to be a team environment.

Check out the Associated Press picture gallery and article HERE. [...] Continue Reading…

What Is God Up To At Grace Community Church?

I don’t know how to describe what’s happening right now at Grace Community Church, short of the Spirit of God works in the hearts of people. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since I know God is more interested in people in our community than I am or any of our staff is concerned…and we love our community, but it is an exciting time to be at Grace.
