    New Year's Morning Worship: Preparing to Celebrate Our 75th Year as a Church.

    It is worth celebrating the tenure of someone or something good. The long-lasting nature of something good means it was established on virtue which has been nurtured. All this year, Grace Church will be celebrating that which is virtuous in a spiritual sense and how we nurture it going forward. Those things which endure have been established on core principles and carefully maintained, and this is also true of the church. Jesus said that upon this rock (Him) He would build His church; and the gates of hell would not prevail against it (Matt. 16:18). The church endures because Jesus ensures that it will.

    How to Have a Word-Saturated Home, Part 2.

    Growing deeper in understanding our faith naturally leads to living it out in a meaningful way.

  • Ephesians 1:17-20

    Theme: Our Eternal Foundation, Part 4 – Every Spiritual Blessing is In Christ

    Paul continues his prayer that we started looking at in verses 15-16. In these verses, his prayer turns from thanksgiving to request for the Ephesian believers, that they would continually understand more of all they were given in Jesus Christ the moment they were saved.

    This morning, we looked at 2 of the 3 things that Paul wanted the Ephesian believers to understand:

  • Ephesians 4:11-16; 2 Timothy 4:3-5

    Theme: Genuine spiritual growth comes only as the Holy Spirit applies the Word of God to people’s hearts.

    This week concludes our detailed look at Grace Church of Mentor’s mission statement: “Grace Church of Mentor exists to glorify God by evangelizing the lost and equipping the saints with the goal of Christ-likeness.”

    Church should not be about appealing to the greatest number of people through style and programs. The Spirit must draw souls to His church. Our promotions must not focus on what we do more than who we are. Church must first and foremost be about understanding and applying the Word of God.
