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 Healing Touch

    August 18, 2016

    “And a leper came to him, imploring him, and kneeling said to him, “If you will, you can make me clean.” Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him and said to him, “I will; be clean.” And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. And Jesus sternly charged him and sent him away at once, and said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, for a proof to them.” But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in desolate places, and people were coming to him from every quarter.” - Mark 1:40-45

    I am that leper.

    Building the Kingdom

    August 11, 2016

    Imagine yourself behind enemy lines, surrounded by nothing but utter desolation.  Your focused on your mission, but also nervous about what will come next.  You get to a place where you feel a sliver of safety, only to find out this is the exact place your enemy wants you.  You see something moving in the distance, coming straight at you.  As they approach, you prepare yourself.  You confirm in your mind your purpose and you recall all your strategies that will lead to victory.  As he gets closer and closer, you start to brace yourself for what will follow.  His stare stabs through you like daggers while you whisper to yourself, “this is war.”  After some time, your enemy makes the first move.  He asks a simple question, “Did God really say…?”

    As followers of Jesus Christ, we are in the middle of a war.  A war between the flesh and the Spirit.  A war between truth and lies.  As we try to mosh through this war without giving in to our sinful depravity, we must remember this one thing, that all Kingdoms are built through war.  The battle for the hearts of men and women is not a new thing.  It has been raging ever since Genesis 3:15 and is still raging today.  But there is one battle in the midst of this war that gives us all hope.  The battle between Jesus and Satan.

    Mightier than I

    August 4, 2016

    You know what our problem is?  Our problem is that we love ourselves.  We love ourselves way too much.  All of us strive to do what's best for us, trying to keep face in a world that is obsessed with themselves.  How do I know this?  Because I am guilty of this humanistic, self-love just like everyone else.  All of us have this intrinsic desire to set ourselves up as gods, trying to control our lives like a master puppeteer.  As followers of Christ, we must remember that there is someone “mightier than I”.  We must remember that we are meant to decrease, and someone else is supposed to increase.  This mentality goes against the culture, but we must remember that we are not the Christ, Jesus is.

    No Longer Slaves

    July 29, 2016

    In Romans 6:15-23, Paul describes the status of believers.  He calls us slaves.  When we think about the word “slave,” most of us think about the slavery that dominated America for many years.  But what Paul is talking about is the simple concept of obedience.  A slave is someone who must obey.
