What is Choose Recovery? We are a group of people who freely admit that we struggle with addictions, afflictions, and compulsive behaviors, who gather together to choose recovery through a growing trust in Jesus who guides us to freedom by following a simple recovery path. No matter where you have been or what you have done, you are welcome here. Together we can find new purpose and joy as we choose recovery.
In this series, we want to help people regardless of their spiritual condition to know and experience more of Jesus as they read and reflect on the stories of Jesus found in the four biographies of Jesus. Accompanying this series will be a 36 day Bible reading program where Monday through Saturday, you can read and reflect on the stories of Jesus and its meaning for your life.
In Matthew’s biography of the life of Jesus, Jesus began his ministry following his baptism and his 40 days of temptation in the wilderness with this bold declaration (4:17b): “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” Later in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught on prayer and one of the petitions he invited his followers to pray was (6:10): “May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” What is this Kingdom that Jesus came to bring? What is this Kingdom Jesus invites us to pray to come? In this series, we will look at several of Jesus parables or stories he gave about the Kingdom in Matthew 13 and apply them to our lives today as we live as Kingdom people.
The pastors and leaders of Grace Church have sensed a calling from God to focus in 2020 around the theme “More.” By “more,” we do not mean more FROM God but more OF God. God’s people who call Grace Church their spiritual home need more of God. Scripture makes promises to us that we can have more of God in worship and prayer, as we live in and protect our unity and as we join Jesus in his mission.
