New Series: Committed
Everyone has a different and unique story, and stories of coming to faith are similarly unique. For thousands of years, God has used all kinds of different ways to bring people to himself. This fall, we are going to study 4 different stories of faith that we find in the Bible. No one story is better than any other, but all bring glory to God. We hope you join us as we explore some of the different ways faith and commitment take shape in our lives.
This week: Caleb. The story of one of only two Israelites who believed that they should trust God to lead them into the Promised Land. Eugene Peterson has a book called "A Long Obedience in the Same Direction" I think that is what Caleb shows us. Come learn more about this extraordinary Bible character Sunday morning.
Bible Reading Plan/S.O.A.P. Journal
In 2017 at Grace Valley, we are working on sowing generously, and living courageously. But we won't do it very well, if we aren't sure of who we are in Christ. So as a way to continually remember who God is, and who we are in Him, many of us are once again reading through the Bible in a year. In addition to reading we are also using a tool called "SOAP Journaling" to help us listen well and process what we are learning about God. You can learn more about SOAP here If you want to download the reading plan, you can find it here. This weeks readings are also listed below.
