Summer 2017

Throughout the summer, we will be hearing messages from our entire ministry staff, as well as a few guest speakers.

Each week will be a new topic, but each message will share one truth: Jesus wins.

Jesus wins over sin in our lives through the cross. Jesus wins over death through the resurrection. 

And Jesus wins our hearts, if we open ourselves up to His grace, and to His plan for our lives.

Join us as we learn each week about the power and grace of Jesus, and how He is working to shape your life for good.

Ephesians 3

In Ephesian 3, the apostle Paul shares his prayer for the church in Ephesus.

Paul's prayer is that the people of Ephesus will continuously recognize and live by the magnificent power of God.

In his final message as senior minister of GCC, Jeff Gaines shares these same words with us, 

and expresses his hope for the future of all those who believe and follow Jesus.

Testimony of freedom

We enjoy the benefit of freedom every day thanks to the men and women who gave their lives in service to our country.

As we reflect on their sacrifice, former Army chaplain Daniel Wheat teaches on the apostle Paul's testimony of freedom in Acts 16.

There is hope

Do you have hope today? Do you believe that there is something to look forward to in this life, and the next?

Do you believe that even in the worst of situations, God is still good?

The truth of the Gospel is that God is always present, and because of that, we always have hope.

No matter what we face in this life, those found in Jesus Christ have a hope for the future.

So- do you have hope today?

Easter

Easter is the time of year when we reflect most deeply on the sacrifice and grace of Jesus Christ.

Jesus came to this earth to die on a cross, so that we could have an eternal place in heaven with Him.

Jesus is our hope and our Savior, and we believe that life is best lived as we love and follow Him.

prodigal

In Luke 15, Jesus tells three parables about seeking the lost.

The most famous of these parables is the story of the prodigal son.

During this series, we'll break down the story of the prodigal son,

and learn what it means to be loved unconditionally by God, our heavenly Father.

YADA yada yada

How often are we able to pause and listen for the voice of God speaking in our lives?

God speaks into our lives in many ways, but we must be ready to listen if we're going to hear him.

Love and war

Relationships can be a great blessing, but many times, they can also be a battle.

The truth about marriage relationships is that great marriages are not found- they are formed.

How then do we fight FOR our marriage, and learn to fight less in our marriage?

That's what we'll be talking about throughout our "LOVE AND WAR" series. 

Resolutions

Do you ever wonder what your spiritual purpose is in life?

The start of a new year gives us the opportunity to set new goals to improve our lives in the year to come.

Most often we make commitments to better our mental or physical health, but how often do we focus on spiritual health?

Throughout our "Resolutions" series, we'll take a look at how to grow spiritually this year,

and more importantly, we'll  discover who God created and desires for us to be.

Warning signs

Jesus once said that "small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (Matt. 7:14)

When we choose to follow Jesus, how do we make sure that we are staying on the narrow road and headed in the right direction?

Throughout this series, we'll talk about the warning signs in our spiritual lives that tell us when we've gone off track,

and more importantly, we'll talk about how to get back on the narrow path- back to following Jesus.

HOW TO...

Life is full of complex and challenging questions.

How do I deal with stress? How does God talk to us? How do I trust the Bible?

Consider this your "How To" guide for answering some of life's biggest questions with Biblical truth.

Daniel

How do you remain faithful in a faithless world?

Join us as we explore the book of Daniel to learn what real faith looks like in the face of adversity.

live free

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free." -Galatians 5:1


We're kicking off the summer with a breakdown of the book of Galatians.

Join us each week as we study Paul's message to the early church of Galatia,

and as we learn how to embrace and walk in the freedom that Jesus alone brings to our lives today.
