Grace Avenue UMC

May 11 – 26, 2019

The heart of our theology is God’s grace.  This unearned love and unmerited favor is always fresh and refreshing.  John Wesley laid it out so that we would know that God’s grace encompasses every step of our lifelong spiritual journey.  It is with the grace of God that we live in covenant with others.  Nothing could be more basic or extraordinary.
