Holy Shift!
We live in a time of instability and unpredictability. Things have shifted in unprecedented ways. It is easy to become paralyzed and lethargic. The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) is a call to action. Jesus’ becomes our solid rock and his words provide a foundation upon which we can live as faithful disciples. In the Sermon on the Mount we will examine three vital teachings which have stayed true through every age and every crisis.

Use Your Imagination

In News by Kim Eiffert

June 2020 Worship Series
Use Your Imagination!
Right now it is easy to feel trapped by circumstances, regulations and guidelines. We want to feel free. We want to feel fully alive; not merely surviving. We worry we don’t have the resources or mobility we are accustomed to. What can we do? The voice of God rings out like a loving parent: “Use Your Imagination!”
There is nothing more God-given than imagination. It reminds us that there are creative juices flowing through every one of us. We need to get them circulating. In God’s grace there is nothing that cannot be transformed by imagination and creativity. To begin to discover this, we do not have to look any further than the first chapter of a Genesis.

Conversations: A Discussion about Race

In News by Kim Eiffert

Conversations
A Discussion about Race with Dr. Ron Henderson
Wednesday, June 3rd at 8:30pm
Facebook Live and www.GraceAvenue.org

In light of the events taking place all around us, “Dessert with Billy & Laura” is shifting focus to become “Conversations.” This simple name change opens us up to a variety of topics and opportunities to invite other voices into some really important conversations. This isn’t to say that we will won’t ever have fun or light-hearted moments. We will, however, be focusing on how we can learn and grow in the midst of a world that is calling us into something new.

For our first conversation we have invited Rev. Dr. Ron Henderson, to lead us in a discussion about race relations and how we, as a predominately white church, can respond in solidarity with the black community in this moment and beyond. This is a conversation that is both specific as we navigate current events, but also calls us into a greater awareness of how racism and white supremacy have adversely affected our systems, our country, our siblings in Christ, and our very souls.
