Latest Sermon

Welcome to Grace

We are followers of Jesus Christ who are striving to love others because God has loved us.  By His grace we have been given the opportunity to share the gospel in the Port Clinton, Catawba Island, and Marblehead areas.  If you have any questions or if you are just wondering who we are and what we do, please do not hesitate to visit or call.  We hope to see and worship God with you soon!

Grace and Peace

    The Flight of Jonah

    April 20, 2017

    What if God called you to go into Nazi Germany during the height of WW2 to knock on Hitler’s door and ask him to stop sinning?  Would you do it?  I didn't think so.  This commission seems insane because not only was Hitler our enemy, but he was also a terrible person to his core.  Why would God ever want him to hear the truth of the gospel?  Why would God ever want to save a man like him?  Many Christians forget that we have been commissioned to do just this.  It might not be Hitler’s door we are knocking on, but we have been called to share the gospel with our neighbors, our families, or complete strangers.  All followers of Jesus have been commissioned to proclaim the excellency of Christ to those who are lost, to those who are sinful, and to those who are perishing.  The problem is that many Christians neglect this commission.  They reject their calling and suppress the truth to those who need to hear it most.

    It's Easter...Again

    April 13, 2017

    Easter is upon us….again.  When you are a Christian, over time Easter becomes common.  It becomes a holiday rather than a celebration focused on worshiping the risen Christ.  Over time we become distracted with family, food, and time off of school or work.  It is almost like we become numb to what is actually happening.  Think of it this way.  Do you remember the first time you went to an amusement park and rode a roller coaster?  The anticipation turned your stomach, the excitement was overflowing, and the enjoyment was so desired.  But then you decide to ride it again, and again, and again.  By the time you leave the park, the roller coaster had lost its anticipation, its excitement, and sometimes, its enjoyment.  This happens with Easter.  Because we go through it year after year after year, we become numb to the reality of the resurrection.  Rather than trying to explain this myself, I am going to appeal to the lyrics of a spoken word poem written and performed by Odd Thomas.  Please read them carefully and then watch the video where he speaks them.  I hope and pray in this Easter season that the reality of the cross will permeate your heart and humble you at the feet of Jesus.

    Hosanna in the Highest

    April 6, 2017

    Palm Sunday highlights the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem for the final week of his life.  When Jesus rode into Jerusalem, all the people had hopes that Jesus was going to save them from the rule of Rome.  They praised him, shouting "Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest."  These people had expectations of earthly freedom, but Jesus did not come to give them earthly freedom, he came to give them spiritual freedom.

    He has Risen, He has Risen Indeed

    March 30, 2017

    Has anything changed your life?  Has a certain circumstance transformed who you were and made you into the person you are now?  I can guarantee that all of us have had some type of transforming experience.  Maybe you served in the military, or got married, or had a child.  The truth is that events transform our lives.  In our spiritual lives, which should direct and lead our physical lives, there is only one event that truly transformed those who believe, and that is the resurrection of Jesus.  He has risen, he had risen indeed.
