G5 Challenge #1

From the Desk of Pastor Cole

Grace Family,

There should be much joy in your heart when you look back on how God has blessed our church in 2022! We have seen souls saved. We have seen our church membership grow. Our church has been involved with helping others to heal, grow, grieve and continue to pursue Christ. The Grace Kids have done an excellent job of being engaged in our Thursday morning C.A.M.P. which has been a tremendous blessing for all the families who are involved with this. Looking back on this year, we can easily rejoice in the Lord for all He has done for Grace Community Baptist Church.

Now let's look ahead to 2023...

On our church's 20th Anniversary, I challenged our church with 5 "G's" which will be the focus of the next 5 years. GROW | GIVE | GUARD | GUIDE | GLORIFY

For 2023, the primary focus will be on the first "G," which is GROW. On Sunday morning, we will study Acts 2:42, understanding how the original church devoted themselves to growing in the Lord. The challenge will be set forth for our church to grow in the following ways:
  • Grow in "Teaching"
  • Grow in "Praying"
  • Grow in "Breaking Bread"
  • Grow in "Fellowship"
Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be releasing articles that are dedicated to helping our church understand how we can grow in these four areas. These are vital to the health of our church and are essential to us truly growing in a manner worthy of the Gospel. Please take this challenge to heart, and be a part of helping our church GROW in 2023.

Lastly, I want you to know how much I love each of you and care about you. God has entrusted the leadership of this church in protecting the flock, guarding the Gospel and preaching the Word. I do not take this responsibility lightly -- I hope you know this.

"May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, Selah
(so) that your way may be known on earth, your saving power among all nations.
Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!
Psalm 67:1-3
