Heavenly Wisdom

Greetings Amazing Grace Family!

In a little over a month, we will be making final preparations to enter into our joint season of evangelism with the Granite Bay Seventh-day Adventist church (October 13-November 18).  This type of evangelistic event requires much work and careful planning.  But in the midst of the planning is the wonderful reality of seeing transform into disciples of Jesus.  As we prepare for meet those who will be coming through our doors let us remember the words of Paul in Colossians 4 who said: "Walk in wisdom toward those who are outside" (v. 5). This wisdom is simply knowing what to do for the glory of God in their presence and how to become all things to all people without compromising holiness and truth.  This wisdom comes when we humbly realize we lack it and ask God to give it to us. James 1:5 tells us that he will impart it to us "liberally and without reproach"!  In the coming weeks let us not fail to ask God to rain this heavenly wisdom on us as a church and as individuals.

In His Service,

Pastor Gresford Thomas

Praying for Your Church Seminar, Sept. 9, 2017
Dear Church Family,
I am so
thankful to be part of a praying church family! Praying with and for all of you through the past five years has been such a blessing to me! God has taught me a lot as I've prayed with, and for, each of you. Come join me on Sabbath, September 9 from 2-4 p.m. as we review some of the things I've learned about effective prayer. I believe we'll all be inspired again to pray more.
