Sermon Series Preview: “The Transcultural Outpost”

 

Over the next five Sundays, we will focus on one basic question: How do we, as children of God, live as citizens of the transcultural outpost in a way that is winsome to a confused world swirling in gender, socio-economic, generational, ethnic, and political strife?

BUT WAIT, WHAT EXACTLY IS THE “TRANSCULTURAL OUTPOST?”  

MGFL Murals: Carlos and Leslie Henriquez

MGFL Murals is our semi-regular segment where we give you a glimpse into what the culture and people of Maranatha Grace are like via short testimonials. Our aim is that over time, you begin to see this beautiful mural of people that makes up our church -- this mural of people from all different backgrounds, all different walks of life, and all sinners who are in need of saving grace.

Walking the Hard Path Together

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."

That simple advice commonly attributed to Ian McClaren. It’s a call to be patient and extend grace to your neighbor not just because God commands you to, but because your neighbor is facing challenges you may know nothing about. Those around you are struggling. Like you, their lives are harder than they might appear. So be charitable. Be kind.

Everest Vacation Bible School 2015: Preview

It's that time of the year again—Vacation Bible School! In past years, kids at Maranatha Grace learned about the need for Jesus while surfing through the waves of the beach, the greatness of God while flying to new heights through the clouds, and the love of God in the life of Jesus while seeking treasures on a tropical island.

Foreword: Welcome to GraceNotes

Once you were not a people, but now you are God's people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. (1 Peter 2:10)
 
Maranatha Grace exists only because of the mercy we’ve received. It’s the gospel of Jesus Christ that birthed this community, and it’s the gospel of Jesus Christ that continues to shape us.
 
GraceNotes is a place for us to hear that gospel.
