Well I'm writing this as the fourth service here at Grace is concluding. Because of Christmas, we decided to add a Saturday evening service to offer yet another option for people to come and celebrate the birth of a Savior amongst the many commitments we all have during this season.
As I reflect upon our services, I cannot help but give thanks for the creative and powerful way the Gospel message was shared over the past 18 hours. How wonderful to see people at each and every service make 1st time commitments to believe that Jesus is God the Son who came into this messy world to rescue us from sin. It makes it all worth while!
I also want to reflect upon the truth that we could not do what we do on a weekend without our great staff here at Grace Church. So much of what happens around the office goes unnoticed by the regular attendee on a Sunday morning, but I assure you that the office is moving at a fast clip when we seek to do four services on the weekend and three on Christmas Eve. Great Job Staff!
I also want to reflect upon the truth that we could not do what we do on a weekend without our great volunteers. Literally 100's of people give of themselves for the cause of Christ and in service to others on a regular basis. Thanks for pouring your lives into the ministry of Grace Church.
To each and every person who plays a regular part in our weekend services I say Thank You! Thank you for giving your life to something greater than self so as to partner with us in the pursuit of proclaiming God's truth whereby the fruit is lives changed for all eternity!
It's been a busy weekend, but it's been a great weekend! I can't wait for Christmas Eve services.
