Let’s Talk About That! (Week 3 – Living a Real Faith)
Life is filled with questions. Some of those questions are hard to answer. Some of them are even hard to ask. Sometimes, there are questions that we think we’re not allowed to ask in a church. At Grace Family Church, we believe that church should be a safe place to discus any topic, from the bedroom to the bank account, so we’re chatting about some of these “touchy” subjects all month long in September. Invite your friends to be part of the dialogue!

How does a follower of Jesus relate to the rest of the world?  Is the world evil?  Is a life lived faithfully to God mean that I have to reject all other things in life?  Andrew Krug steps us through this larger-than-life conversation in our third week in our Let's Talk About That series.

    For Our Neighbors – Week 2 (The Story)

    If you've been to church at some point in your life, you've probably heard the term "gospel" at some point ... but what is this gospel? This summer, we'll be looking at the story of good news of that God illustrates throughout all of Scripture. We'll discover our own place in the gospel story and how to communicate it in powerful ways. We'll also look at how the Gospel has actually given us a new identity in Christ and how to live out the truth of this gospel identity in the normal rhythms of everyday life.

    While we learned last week that the Gospel is God's good news for all people, today we discover that the truth of the Gospel intersects my life, and I must decide what the dominant story of my life will be.

    EPIC – Week 3 (Moses)
    Series: EPIC
    Everyone one of us has story. Every man, woman, and child that has set foot on this earth has one. And every story has a hero. That story is meant to be EPIC, just like it’s hero. We believe that authentically following Jesus leads to a life that is better than one that you could write yourself. Through this message series, we'll discover how following the Creator of the universe leads to something truly Epic.
     
    We continue our discussion of the EPIC life and the hero Jesus by looking at the life of the quintessential law-giver to the people of Israel, a leader and prophet called Moses.

    Too Good To Be True – S1E3 (Col 1.24-2.5)
    God wants me to be happy ... and I should ALWAYS be happy, too, right?  Well, the bible makes it clear that while God does want us to be happy (in Him), the problem of sin and suffering is very real.  While we may never fully understand the why's, where's, or how's of pain, we can rest on the powerful truth that there can be very great and glorious good that comes out of suffering.
     
    Frankie Valli once famously penned these iconic words: “You’re too good to be true - I can't take my eyes off you ... at long last love has arrived, and I thank God I'm alive.” These words capture that distinct wonder of encountering something SO good that it seems unbelievable, and yet which draws us inexplicably toward it. As we dig into Season One of our Too Good To Be True series, we will discover a reality that is bigger and better than anything we could have hoped to imagine, and is more true than anything else we could ever discover.

    Too Good To Be True – S1E2 (Col 1.15-23)
    What makes something or someone worthy of my loyalty?  What factors are at play that bind me in allegiance to a cause or a person?  Episode 2 in our present series demonstrates that we serve that which is supreme in our lives ... and that there is someone supreme over all others that deserves our allegiance and loyalty.

    Light of the World – Week 3
    If we look around us, this world can seem pretty dark. The answer is to find light in the darkness ... Jesus is the light that overcomes the dark, and that’s what makes Christmas the most wonderful time of the year. It’s not  because of what’s happening but because of what happened, not because of who is with us but because of who is for us.
     
    This morning, we discuss that living the lives God has given us in the Light that Jesus brought into our world must and does produce growth in our lives ... and it it doesn't we need to evaluate why not.

    Jonah – Chapter 4
    Series: Jonah 2017
     
    Of all the stories found in the Bible, one of the most recognizable is that of Jonah, particularly the part of the narrative when he is swallowed alive by a gigantic sea creature and - miraculously - lives to tell the tale.  But could it be that there is much more to this account than fantastic oceanic adventures?
     
    Join with us throughout the month of February to discover how the story of Jonah is really a story of ALL of us and how we can learn to discover the heart of the One who loves us, designed us, and has big plans for us.
