Why Me?

Posted by Jill Reitz on

During the week leading up to Challenge I was tired. Exhausted to be honest. I felt ill equipped and unqualified to join the youth on this adventure and being run down didn't seem like a great start. I started to question my role altogether. “Why me?” This question weighed heavy. I...

This Door is Locked

Posted by Colby Kinser on

This door is locked. It's on the ramp leading up to the balcony of Municipal Auditorium where the main sessions for Challenge are being held this week. Unmarked, short, locked door that hides a mystery. I just walk by the door. Every time. It's not my door, and what's behind it is not my...

Please Stop and Breathe

Posted by Colby Kinser on

I'm going to step onto thin ice, here. Please take care to see what I actually do and don't say, without inserting someone else's words into my own. I will try to parse my words carefully. I'm watching this controversy about immigrant children being separated from their parents. But...

I Knew it Was You!

Posted by Colby Kinser on

This week at VBS, I got to play the character of the marooned Jim Noland. My costume was pretty simple - some raggedly shorts, a dirty and torn t-shirt, and one sandal. Not exactly the master of disguise! After the opening skit, I would change back into my normal clothes for the day and hang...

Made to be Broken

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Last week in our gathering, I mentioned in prayer that God didn’t create Grace Fellowship just to gather on a Sunday morning. That’s not why Grace Fellowship exists, and I know for certain that it’s not why a number of people call Grace their church family. He did, however...

Continue our Faith Trip

cf. Matthew 10:16-23 Last month I described an exciting faith trip I took the summer of 1973, which was intended to follow the pattern and instructions given in Matthew 10:1-15. The impact of that trip on my life has been acontinual source of encouragement. However, the disciples faith...

Awana Thank Someone

Posted by Colby Kinser on

Last Monday, we drew the curtain down on another year of Awana. All in all, a great year. The leaders shared stories at the banquet this week to share some of the highlights of the year, and I'm so very grateful for what God has done. Kristin Marsh deserves special mention. This was her first...

Fearing the Lord

Posted by Colby Kinser on

"Fear the Lord!" In both the Old Testament and the New, we are not only told to fear the Lord, but that it's one of the most important things we can ever do as human beings. It's mentioned at least 8 times in Deuteronomy alone. We know that those without the grace of Christ should be afraid of...
