Desperate for Community

January 24, 2017

Articles, i am graceway, purpose|

“I tried to force myself into doing something that wasn’t really me… all out of desperation for community.”

For Abbey Fraser, it kept coming back to two simple questions: Where do I belong? Who am I?

In just a matter of three years so much in her life had changed, she had experienced parental divorce, was married […]

Discussion Questions, Uncategorized|

Overview Last week we started a series that will cover the last three chapters of the book of Luke. We will cover two simultaneous points of emphasis during this study: What Jesus said and did during his final hours, and how these things affected the community that he sought to leave behind.

Looking Forward

January 3, 2017

Articles|

It is important for us to remember where we came from, in order to know where we are, and where God is leading us in the future. It’s no secret that Graceway is in a time of transition as we look for a new lead pastor, but even in this transition we are committed to being […]

What a weekend.

Santa, an adorable pre-show with the kids choir, games and crafts, and who could forget that dancing cuban Grinch?! Graceway’s Drama team put on an amazing production of Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. With nearly 2,000 in attendance and a cast and crew of 130 volunteers, this was the largest production we have […]

Revelation 19-22

December 6, 2016

Devotions 2015, Devotions December|

What does it say?

Revelation 19 is a glorious vision of the Second Coming of Christ accompanied by the church, symbolized here as his bride. The Antichrist and False Prophet are cast into a place of judgment called a lake of fire. The devil himself is bound in a place called the bottomless pit to be […]

Revelation 12-18

Devotions 2015, Devotions December|

What does it say?

John sees a vision of woman that gives birth to a child, is attacked by Devil and involved in a cosmic struggle that ends with the ultimate defeat of the Devil (Rev 12). A beast (living creature) appears from the sea that is a composite of the creatures representing Gentile world powers […]

Revelation 6-11

Devotions 2015, Devotions December|

What does it say?

John sees the Lamb open the seven-sealed scroll, unleashing a series of disasters, including conquest, war, famine, disease and the martyrdom of believers (6:1-11). The sixth seal brings a vision of the final Day of Judgment and the end of the world as we now know (6:11-17). Before the seventh seal is […]

Revelation 1-5

Devotions 2015, Devotions December|

What does it say?

Exiled on the island of Patmos, the Apostle John writes the Revelation of Jesus Christ between 90 and 95 AD. John receives this revelation through angelic mediation in a series of visions. John describes his vision of the resurrected Christ in a scene filled with symbolism (Rev 1). The second and third […]

2 and 3 John

Devotions 2015, Devotions December|

What does it say?

These two final letters of John reflect the same style and theme of his first epistle, our need to love God and each other. John is still an elder of the church in Ephesus and the lady to whom he writes is probably an idiomatic way to address another local church. If […]

1 John

Devotions 2015, Devotions December|

What does it say?

John’s first epistle focuses on God’s love and our need to reflect that love. John is both tender and strong as he writes to his children in the faith. He is probably the only of the original twelve apostles still alive at this time.

John contends that God is light and sent his […]

2 Peter, Jude

Devotions December|

What does it say?

Just as Paul’s second letter to Timothy represents his final instructions, 2 Peter is the last we hear from Peter, probably written shortly before his execution. There are many similarities between 2 Timothy and 2 Peter, and there are also many similarities between 2 Peter and the tiny epistle of Jude.

Peter opens […]

2 Timothy

Devotions 2015, Devotions December|

What does it say?

2 Timothy is the last and most intensely personal of Paul’s letters. Paul is a prisoner in Rome for the second time and knows that he will shortly be executed. It is probably the fall of 67 AD as he reaches out one final time to Timothy, his son in ministry, who […]

As a soccer coach in Graceway’s league, he helps players understand God’s great design and hopes he leaves a good impression with them and their families. God’s plan for Kyle to impact young lives as a coach took many twists […]

I am Graceway: Shelby DeWitt

October 13, 2016

Articles, i am graceway|

Shelby DeWitt’s story begins in high school. A herniated disk in her back pulled her out of sports, something that had been very important in her life. She got into a slump, and began to fall into depression and started self-medicating: hanging out with the wrong people, partying, drinking.

 

Her senior […]

Brian Stuchul Story

October 5, 2016

Articles, i am graceway|

“From the moment I heard the metal of my car crunching, I knew. I knew that God didn’t make this happen to me, but I knew I had been running from God and this was his way of letting me know he was still there…waiting for me to follow Him.”

This is how Brian Stuchul describes […]

September 21, 2016

Articles|

In 2009 we were sitting in Graceway on a Sunday morning listening to a guest speaker talk about his upcoming move to Asia. Having been members of Graceway for many years, we had learned much about God’s heart for all people of the world. Up until that day, we didn’t know what God […]

The voice said to him, “Do not read the Koran again for the rest your life!” “M” believed the voice. So, although he lived a Muslim life, married a Muslim […]
