Our people desire to live up to our name. Our hope is to truly BECOME a place of grace. Grace is extending unmerited love and favor. Our goal is to be a refuge for the hurting. At our church, you can expect to be loved unconditionally. This is a loving place. A safe place. An accepting place. A place where caring people care for people. There's a place for you here!
There are 3 questions that God asked man in scripture that are still valid questions for us today.
God asked Adam, "Where are you?" God knew exactly where Adam was. God wanted Adam to know where he was. And it wasn't really about where Adam WAS, it was actually about where Adam WASN'T. Perhaps God is asking you this question. "Where are you?" Are you where God wants you to be? Are you doing what He wants you to do?
God asked the prophet Elijah, "What are you doing here? (1 Kings 19:1-18) Elijah was hiding from Queen Jezebel in a cave. He had previously shown much boldness and courage. Now he trembles with fear and goes into hiding. God asks him, "What are you doing here? This is no place for a giant in the faith to be." Could God be asking you this question? "What are you doing HERE?" Are you out of place? Are you running from your calling?
Annanias and Sapphira were asked this question. "Why have you let satan fill you heart?" This husband and wife duo had opened their hearts and allowed Satan to put some things in their heart that did not belong. Is God asking you this question? "Why have you let satan fill you heart?" Has he placed pride in your heart? How about bitterness? Could it be jealousy?
