As we get ready to start The Story in 2 weeks, Pastor Eric gives us an introduction to The Story, why we think it will be important for every member of our church, and how we are going to use The Story to help us learn more about God
At the end of Ruth, we see Ruth and Boaz get married and have a son. That son becomes the grandfather of King David.
The story of Ruth and Boaz and Naomi ends with God rescuing Naomi’s family, providing a son to her. A son that would be the most important king of Israel, and an ancestor of the Messiah.
God’s faithfulness and provision shines through again.
Dr. Rick Anderson is with us this morning to share God’s word. He preaches the gospel from Psalm 100.
In Ruth 3, Ruth proposes to Boaz, and we see how God’s hesed (lovingkindness) permeates the entire story of Ruth, and enables Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz to love each other well.
Scott and LIsa Neumann are missionaries in Lithuania. They are spending the summer here in the States. We are thankful to be able to partner with them in ministry, and they are going to give us an update on the ways in which they see God working in Lithuania.
In Ruth 2, we begin to see the ways that God is providing for Ruth and Naomi. His good law provides a means for Ruth to go into the field and glean behind the harvesters. But there is more going on in this passage in Ruth
We are starting a new series for the summer working through the book of Ruth. We will learn how God’s providence and love are always working for the good of his people.
We have made it to the end of the book of Colossians. Paul gives one last word of instruction to the church. To pray, to be watchful, to and to look for God to give opportunities to share the gospel.
Pastor Eric continues our Colossians series by preaching about how we should live, if what Paul has already said about us is true. If we have died with Christ, and raised with Christ, what should our lives look like.
Ken Ross has been an elder at Grace Valley for many years, and a member his whole life. We are thankful for his willingness to be stretched and preach the word to us today. He is going to share with us some Biblical examples of God stretching his people.
Paul teaches the Colossians church what it means to view everything through the lens of the cross. To let the cross shape every aspect of our lives. To let Jesus be Lord over everything. And the result is freedom.
Dr. David Seymour, from Dekalb is with us this morning to preach the word. He taught us how God is bigger than the shipwrecks in our lives.
Pastor Eric kicks off a new series on Colossians. We looks at how the gospels come to us, and leads to the fruit of the Spirit, particularly Love, Joy and Peace
Mike Moore Pastor and Church planter is with us this morning. We are glad to have Mike with us for an update on his life and ministry.
Here is his sermon from John 20
This Easter Sunday pastor Eric preaches on Jesus walking with the two disciples on the road to Emmaus. Why didn’t they recognize Jesus then, and how can we see him walking with us today?
On Palm Sunday, Jesus rides into Jerusalem as king- on a donkey. Pilate rides into Jerusalem on his war horse. There are two kinds of rulers, two kinds of Kings. The question for us is- which one will you follow?
This week we start a 3 week series on Jesus as Prophet, Priest and King. We are taking an overview look at how the Prophets functioned in the Israelite community, and how Jesus is the greater prophet.
Our friend and brother Matt Snider is here preaching from 1 Timothy this morning. We are so thankful to have him as part of our church, and his willingness to share his teaching gifts with us.
The last week in our transitions series, Pastor Eric preaches about Jesus’ words in Matthew 5 that we are salt and light. How does this impact the way that we walk out our calling as Children of God?
This week Pastor Eric preached on the Spiritual gifts. Looking at various places in the New Testament where Paul describes gifts, we explored how we might know what our gifts are.
