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!

    The Nazirite pt. 1

    April 28, 2016
    Is it possible for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle?  If you have any common sense, you know the answer is a confident "no."  How about this, is it easy for a rich person to enter into the kingdom of heaven?  This question is a little more difficult, isn't it?  These are two questions that Jesus brings up in Matthew 19.  He explains to his disciples that it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle, than for a rich person to enter into the kingdom of God.  But how?  A camel doing such a thing is completely impossible.  And someone with an excessive amount of money could possibly enter into the kingdom of God, couldn't they?

    The Sly Culture

    April 21, 2016
    Romans 12:2 says, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."  When I read this passage, the only thought that comes to mind is, "Why is this so hard?"

    Why is it so hard to conform ourselves to Christ rather than the world?  If you are anything like me, you know exactly what I am talking about.  The culture around us seeps into our everyday lives and sometimes even dictates the way we live.  The culture affects us more than we think.

    The Prospective Judge pt. 2

    April 14, 2016

    Are you the type of person who needs to see proof in order to believe something?  Do you need to see it for yourself in order to accept it?  In our everyday lives, proof transforms the way we think and act. This is not new to mankind.  We see it all throughout the Old Testament, and we especially see it in the story of Gideon.  

    According to Judges 6 and 7, proof was something Gideon needed in his life.  We learn that God saw Gideon's potential and that God was going to use Gideon to accomplish salvation for Israel.  The only problem was, Gideon.  God was going to use Gideon, but Gideon was not ready.  So God, being a God of grace, gave him what he needed in order to accomplish what He wanted.  Gideon might have not been ready, but God knew that, so in the course of Gideon's story, we see what God does to remedy this situation.

    The Prospective Judge

    April 7, 2016

    “No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life.  Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you” (Joshua 1:5).  These words were spoken by God to Israel’s new leader, Joshua.  But for some reason God thought Joshua needed a little more encouragement, so He exhorts him multiple times to “be strong and courageous,” and also asks Joshua to “not be afraid.”  We need to pay attention to these words of God because they actually apply to us today.  God was commissioning Joshua to do mighty works in His name, and today, God continues to commission his people, you and me, to do mighty works right where we are.  The only problem is that sometimes those who He chooses to use are either too scared or unwilling to be used by Him. Sometimes we as believers don’t realize our spiritual potential and the impact we could have in our local church and community for God’s kingdom.  So the question is, have you realized your spiritual potential?
