Vision Walk Week 5: The Old Gate


We continue "walking through the gates of Nehemiah" this week. And we come to one that is often avoided by people who don't understand it. It is the Old Gate. Or, as the prophet Jeremiah puts it in Chapter 6: "Stand at the crossroads and look, ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it..." Are you ready to walk through the Old Gate?



Vision Walk – Week 4: The Gates (Part 1)


Ever come across something in the bible that seems like a useless detail? Maybe you skip over whole paragraphs wondering why in the world it was even included in the Bible to begin with. What if some of those passages we skip over actually contain a blueprint for our journey with Jesus? Join as our Nehemiah study enters “The Ten Gates.”


Vision Walk - Week 3: Resolve


As Nehemiah approaches his destination, he must have been excited -- over four months of planning and travel has finally led him to the doorstep of fulfilling God's destiny for his life. But before he even arrives, word reaches him that the leaders of Jerusalem have heard he is coming to assist Israel -- and they are not happy about it. Welcome to Working for the Kingdom of Heaven! Don't expect that there won't be opposition. Or as Pastor Grice puts it: Movement causes Friction...


Vision Walk – Week 2: Opportunity


Sometimes the backstory matters. In the book of Nehemiah, the author left us important clues that show us how to be ready when an opportunity comes along, and how to learn the most important part of the planning stage: waiting on God’s signal. Nehemiah can teach us a lot about planning for God’s Vision.


Vision Walk Week 1: Broken Heart


If being a Christian is about doing the will of the Father, and Jesus says it is, how do we do that? How do we move from God speaking to us, to us stepping out in Faith to "Walk the Vision?" That's what this series is about. We are following along with the story of Nehemiah and learning how to move from "catching the vision" to "Walking the walk" that gets us there.


On the Edge of the Promise


New year... new beginnings. It seems everyone is thinking of a year full of promise in this season. Wouldn't it be great if God had a promise waiting for you. If, like the Israelites years ago, you were standing on the edge of God's promised land? But what if the fulfillment of that promise were entirely dependent upon you...?
Numbers 10:29,33,34; Numbers 12:1-3; Numbers 13:1-2, 25-33; Psalm 89:34; Numbers 20:7-10, 12; Exodus 17:6; Exodus 3:13-14; Hebrews 3:7-17; Luke 16:11,13,42; Matthew 6:19-21; Romans 4:21; Matthew 15:8-9;


Fear Not — Christmas Eve 2017


A short (well, for Pastor Grice, anyway) sermon talking about the famous meeting between the shepherds watching the sheep, and Heaven’s designated flash mob of Angels. There is a lot going on in that phrase: “Fear Not!”


Jesus Matters


We're getting ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Everyone knows the story. Little Baby Jesus. Three Kings. A Manger. Sheep. (Lots and lots of sheep). What's the big deal? By January 1st most people in our country have forgotten all of it. (Sometimes, judging from how people are honking at cars in the parking lot while leaving Christmas Eve services, it doesn't even take that long.) Does any of it matter? Really?


Ruth Week 5: Redemption


Finally, the "Star Crossed" relationship of Ruth and Boaz comes full circle. Along the way, we learn a lot about the leadership of a righteous man, and the faithfulness of a righteous woman. We also see a touching picture of God's love for us come through the story.


Ruth Week 4: Study in Integrity


If we are going to see what Heaven wants to show us, we need to learn to look where God is looking. In the book of Ruth... that means paying attention to what Ruth is doing, and not Naomi...
