Cold Weather Item Collection
Through November 22nd
Grace Avenue is excited to announce a new Community Partnership. We are now the primary partner with Corbell Elementary through Frisco ISD, serving as a mentor organization and helping the students and teachers with needs throughout the year. This is a wonderful opportunity to reach out and serve the students of need within our local community. Corbell services many students that live along the Frisco/Little Elm Border and the 423 Apartment community. The current need is for winter clothing.
November 8 – 22, 2020
We live in a time of counting and transaction; winners and losers, this for that. Things are measured not by what they are worth but what they cost. We are left feeling empty.
God’s goodness and abundance, however, is poured out beyond any measure we can calculate. When we share grace, practice gratitude and strive to glorify God we begin to experience the God designed abundant life that is beyond measure.
Oct. 4-25, 2020
Churches often hear people say, “That’s too political. Stick to the Bible”. The church is told that it has no place in politics and yet we see that Christianity has been weaponized as a political tool. The echoes ring out: “True Christians vote Republican.” or “True Christians vote Democrat.” Both statements are wrong. Our Christianity is not defined by a specific political platform, but that doesn’t not mean that issues deemed “political” are not Jesus issues.
Tending to physical needs like food, shelter and water were Jesus issues. Caring for prisoners and the sick were Jesus issues. Loving our enemies, blessing those who curse us, and welcoming refugees were Jesus issues. So why do we say these things are ‘off limits’ for us to talk about in church?
