Play-off Predictions

Posted onJanuary 6, 2009 | by: Allen Snapp | 1 comments

Well, here we are again, it's play-off time. As a Giants fan, I am pretty jazzed about Sundays game against the Eagles. I can't deny I'm hoping for a Superbowl repeat, but I realize that the Eagles are coming in hungry, with momentum, and with a win over the Giants in their last regular season meeting. So there is no arrogant cockiness here (well ok, maybe a little, but only a little). What a great time of year! I love the play-offs!!!...Keep Reading

He Restores My Soul

Posted onDecember 31, 2008 | by: Allen Snapp | 0 comments

In Psalm 23 David writes of the Lord our Shepherd, "He restores my soul." I am not sure I fully appreciate how important it is that my soul be regularly restored, but I want to grow in the awareness of my soul's need to be restored. We have a hard time ignoring the signals of a physically sick body, but I suspect for many of us it is all too easy to limp along with a thin and malnourished soul....Keep Reading

This past Monday we thought Janice's mom was going home to be with the Lord. Mom Lehman is a godly, humble, loving woman who served the Lord Jesus faithfully for many, many years, but has had advanced alzheimer's for over 15 years and no longer seems to recognize even her closest loved ones. She is ready to go home to be with her Lord....Keep Reading

Of Theology, Mystery and Worship

Posted onSeptember 18, 2008 | by: Allen Snapp | 0 comments

Last night in care group we were discussing the necessity of accepting mystery in our understanding of who God is, what God has done, and how He does it. As Spurgeon says, "I worship a God I never expect to comprehend. If I could grasp him in the hollow of mine hand, I could not call him my God ; and if I could understand his dealings so that I could read them as a child reads his spelling book, I could not worship him..."...Keep Reading

Why the Name Change?

Posted onSeptember 6, 2008 | by: Allen Snapp | 0 comments

You might be wondering, so what's up with the name change? Many churches in our family of churches are changing to Sovereign Grace Church, and here we are changing from Sovereign Grace Church to Grace Community Church. Let me just say that I love the name Sovereign Grace Church! Always have and always will. Our decision to change our name began with a sense that God was bringing a fresh season to this church and we began to wonder if a name change might not reflect that expectation. And Grace Community seemed to "fit" our small town locale in a way that just seemed right....Keep Reading
