Rewind / FAST Forward 2018 (Week 1)
As the New Year begins, we look back on some of what God has done in and through our church.  But we also look ahead to what He has in store for us in the days coming. We live in a sliver of history that sees 7.6 billion people alive who all need the hope and life that can only be found in Jesus.  What would it look like if we lived out that reality in our everyday lives?
 
Guided by our past, but never enslaved to it, we peer eagerly into what the time ahead of us will bring.  Grace Family Church has an invaluable mission and a compelling vision for the future, and we set our eyes on how the hope, love, joy, forgiveness, and restoration that following after Jesus provides.

    Light of the World – Week 6
    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 look ahead to the final result of what it means to walk in the Light that came to this world 2000 years ago - and it is this simple truth:  once I've encountered Jesus in a real and authentic way, cannot stay the same as I was before.

    Sometimes It Takes A Party – Week 4
    Sometimes, it takes a party to change how we see those around us and to change how we present the most important truth of all - that Jesus loves, that we love, and that there is hope in this crazy world. 
     
    Today, Pastor Tim describes what the grand, glorious party will be when God brings all things to completion and how that should be a motivator to us all to invite everyone we can to the party.

    Today, Pastor Nathan Bryant of Assist Church Expansion (www.assistcx.org) opens our eyes to several powerful truths about inviting people to the party - such as the truth that we're not called to do it by ourselves or the truth that we don't have to be someone other than who we are to invite others.

    Today, Pastor Brad helps to further define the kind of party (and kind of partyers) that God desires.  We look at the goodness of God, and how that goodness should motivate us both to party well and to help others party, too.
