Ministry Overview: Youth

Fall is fast-approaching. The school year has started, and youth begin a new season, many making significant transitions. For some, it is a new school, others a new sport and some will experience finding a new group of friends. These transitions will occur while students wrestle to find their identity, belonging, and purpose. Many Christian youths will seek an identity …

Following Jesus in Humility

On August 3rd, I encountered a new “first” in ministry. In partnership with Mission to the World and alongside two other church members, I traveled to Poland as a courier to provide humanitarian aid to those displaced by the war in Ukraine. One of the trip’s highlights was worshiping with Christ the Savior Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Krakow, Poland. It …

Pressing On

Hello GRC – A common question this time of year is “How’s your summer been?”  The past tense fits the date on the calendar, the dim sky by 8pm, and the realization that school is right around the corner.  Given our stage of family-life, Cedar’s and my answer along the lines of “It’s been a great summer” is really all …

Establishing Our Steps

My husband, Ken, remembers and recounts the thrill he felt when he was around the age of 8 and his dad would let him “drive” the family boat on Piseco Lake in the Adirondacks. The engine would cruise at a steady pace and all he needed to do was keep the steering wheel on course or perhaps make a smooth, …

The Shark Lesson

I’d like to share a recent lesson from my fifth grade Sunday School class. The lesson began with the image of a shark swimming in the ocean. The only thing we can see above the surface is the fin, representing the sins that are noticeable to ourselves or others. The sins could include lying, physically harming others, mistreating a sibling, …

To Live is Christ, To Die is Gain

Philippians 1:21 is one of my favorite verses. (Incidentally, it is also etched on my dad’s tombstone in India. Some of you heard a sliver of his story in my Grace Story and the verse reflects the way he lived his life.) This verse seems like an unachievable ideal.
