April Pastor’s Notes

     It’s April, the days are getting longer, the nights are getting warmer, and the sights and sounds of Spring fill the air (along with a lot of pollen).  And this year something else is coming with April:  Easter!  Yes, in just a few weeks, we will all be celebrating the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!  And although society and sometimes even the church seems to celebrate Christmas more, it is the message of the cross and the empty tomb that should stir our souls to worship and praise with every fiber of our being.

     It is true that there is actually no command in Scripture to celebrate a specific holiday called Easter. But, I still think that it is unquestionably God-honoring for us to make a big deal about the climax of human history:  Jesus’ atoning sacrifice on Calvary’s Cross and His victory over death with the empty tomb.  This year is particularly special because we have been building up our  Spiritual Discipline with a rigorous Spring Training from Paul’s first letter to his disciple Timothy.

     All of this training and discipline has prepared us as a church for a very special opportunity to glorify our God.  We are challenging and encouraging one another to invite two new people or families to worship with us this Easter Sunday.  It is our prayer that God will bless us with the opportunity to share His glorious Gospel with 200 people, making this Easter our single greatest evangelistic effort to date. 

     Therefore, I encourage you to start praying today!  Pray not only about whom to ask, but also pray for the souls of those you will eventually ask.  Pray that they will be receptive to your invitation, that their hearts will be open to the Good News of the Gospel they will hear, and that they will be compelled by the power of the Holy Spirit to repent and trust in Jesus Christ our Lord.  Beloved, today is the day of salvation and we “are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!”  Christ is Risen… He is Risen Indeed!!!

 

 



March Pastor’s Notes

Although it may not feel like it yet, winter is finally beginning to wind down.  The days are getting longer, the daffodils are beginning to poke out of the soil, and it’s almost time for the dreaded “Daylight Saving Time”.  But there is one more sign that winter is almost over that every baseball fan waits for each year:  Spring Training!

     In Arizona and Florida, hundreds of veterans and wide-eyed rookies are taking to the field to prepare themselves for a new season of hoping that this is the big one.  Spring Training is a time of physical conditioning, position drills, and practice games, in order to make them better players and stronger teammates.

     In the same way, March opens up Grace Baptist’s Spring Training.  We have a lot planned for this year:  A record setting Easter Celebration, a fun-filled AWANA Grand Prix, Evangelistic Festival Outreaches, and another exciting and fruitful Vacation Bible School!  And all of that begins with our Spring Training.

     On Saturday the 16th, we will be having another Grace Family Foundations Class, for anyone with questions about who we are and what we believe.  On Sunday the 24th, directly following our Service, we are going to have a special Leadership Training to continue to improve our already wonderful Children’s Ministry.  And starting Sunday the 3rd, we are going to begin a new Sermon Series from 1 Timothy chapter 4 entitled “Spring Training:  12 Essential Spiritual Disciplines”.

     It is my prayer that God will use our month of Spring Training to build on our recent focus on the essence of True Worship to prepare us for another exciting and God-honoring year.  So, please join us all this month, as both our veterans and our wide-eyed rookies of the faith prepare ourselves for another season of hope!
