Ministry Overview: Missions

Back in December, a former U.S. Navy pilot, Michael Cassidy, destroyed an altar to the occultic deity, Baphomet, that sat in the Iowa State House alongside Christmas and Hannukah displays.

Seeking Biblical Wisdom

Hello GRC! This past Sunday during the adult Sunday School hour, attendees could ask any question of GRC’s elders (our Session).  Separately, some of us have gotten questions like “What’s GRC’s position on Israel and Hamas?”  Sometimes underneath a question like that is this curiosity (or demand): “What side are you taking?”  For some people, it’s intended as a litmus …
