Reveal My Heart

Two years ago, a sister in Life Group shared a strange prayer request, “I want God to show me my sin for what it is, and for me to be grieved by it,” I didn’t quite understand her prayer request. “Who asks God for that?” I wondered, “Is it something I need to do?” I was confused that this sister …

Tested and Approved

Hello GRC! Do you have a nightmare that recurs every now and then, and follows the same theme, even if some details are different?  Mine is related to my job/ministry:  I show up somewhere – sometimes at GRC, sometimes another church, sometimes a random place – and I’m expected to preach, but I have no idea until people are looking …

Ministry Overview: Discovery Group

What do you hope to see happen in your life through your connection to the church?    Based on my experience, not many of us think much about that question.  It’s far more common to think about what we hope the church will provide us and our families:  dynamic worship, Biblical preaching, engaging children’s and youth programs, fellowship opportunities, Bible …

Passover Promises

This Good Friday as we gather for worship, Jewish people all over the world will be celebrating Passover. The feast of Passover has always been a favorite of mine.

Similarly, I adopt this approach to my Bible reading: I decide what books to be read and the start to finish timeframe. My goal is to …

Hope Explored Overview

In this week’s Voice of Grace, I want to talk about a new series that can help us share our faith with others called Hope Explored. The end of the movie Braveheart is a visual of hope lost. It’s the moment William Wallace realized his dreams for an independent Scotland were no more, after he was betrayed by fellow countryman Robert …

Looking At The Heart

“Mommy, you always say that God looks at the inside and not the outside, so why do I have to wear that dress to church?!” It was a Sunday morning a few years ago, and my 6-year old was making an impassioned plea, tangled hair flying, outfitted in some worn-out leggings and a mismatched shirt. I felt struck. She was …

Missions Overview

We, as a Missions Team, are excited about what God is doing with missions at GRC. Part of the challenge of this ministry is that so many of the missionaries we support are working in “sensitive” locations around the world, which makes it difficult to communicate about them through the Web or email without putting them or their ministries at …

Parenting Teens with Prayer

I didn’t grow up with parents who loved the Lord, so when Kieran was born I read all the Christian parenting books I could find.  I wanted to do it “right”.  I believed that if I parent a certain way, my kids would love Jesus in their teenage years.  When they struggled with selfishness or rudeness, I would let them …
