The reason…

This past week my heart and eyes have been open to something that has truly changed my thinking. We have seen something awesome begin to take place at GracePoint that, to me, is truly profound. We have a little over half of our adults that regularly attend GracePoint involved in a 13-week Financial Peace series.  A series that teaches people to handle the money that God has blessed them with in a wise way. I believe God blesses those who are wise with their money and I believe that God is getting ready to do something amazing within the lives and families at GracePoint.

We had a baptism service this past week where we baptized 22 people and a few of those were not planning on doing so when they came to the service.

We are seeing more people attend our services than ever before and dozens of people are making a commitment to follow God for the rest of their life weekly.

We are hearing stories of marriages being restored, people leaving addictions, leaving dark pasts, and becoming fully devoted followers of Christ.

God is doing something at GracePoint and it is unbelievable.

It is these stories that we can use to explain to people the reason we “do church” the way we do. We are creating a relevant environment for people to connect with God on a personal level and that is amazing.

“brighter than any light on a stage – is the illumination of a soul
more beautiful than a harmony sung – is a song placed on a heart in need
more powerful than a message spoken i- s a truth heard
these are the reasons for the lights, for the music, for the message

THIS IS WHY GRACEPOINT EXISTS – TO SEE LIVES COMPLETELY TRANSFORMED BY GOD
