Thank you to everyone who came out yesterday for, what could have been, our biggest anniversary celebration yet! Of course, all glory and praise be to God who has blessed us with so much more than we deserve.
For our second installment of A Day in the Life, we are so excited to have TWO glimpses into this year's Ladies' Retreat through our sister, Diana Moy's, reflections on what she learned at retreat....AND a special video recap giving us both an inside look into Ladies' Retreat AND an exclusive interview with Retreat Planner, Delimar Freire, and Retreat Speaker, Anna Moore.
This weekend many of our ladies will be spending time together, away from their usual responsibilities and activities. For but a fleeting moment in the grand scheme of things, they will 'retreat' for focused learning, fellowship, growing, eating, praying, and playing. They retreat seeking to be re-invigorated, re-calibrated, and refreshed for what they will face as they return to the day-to-day. And they do so all for God's glory and honor, as well as for their joy which in turn also brings God glory!
A few things I'd like to remind all of us to do in light of this wonderful opportunity:
Next Tuesday, September 15, we will be hosting a prayer meeting at 360 Sylvan Ave. focusing on prayer specifically for North Korea. When it comes to North Korea, not many people know much about its inner workings outside of the fact that it is an extremely isolated country with a man named Kim Jong Un running the show. However, that is not to say that the Gospel is not at work in North Korea nor does it mean that North Korea is not in need of prayer! Today, our Deacon of Missions, Mihye Kim, reflects on her experiences with and what led her to start praying for North Korea.
The man in the orange shirt at the 168th street subway stop strikes a response in me, that of sadness mixed with anger as the smell of urine penetrates my nostrils, alongside embarrassment for my own lack of compassion and kindness toward another human being.
...then when I forget about the man, he appears a week later and I react again, in much the same way. Then yes, I forget again.
This 10 letter word elicits a variety of responses in the believer’s psyche.
It strikes fear in the heart of some who dread the idea of sharing about the foolishness of the Cross to that Muslim friend, that belligerently anti-christian co-worker, or worse yet, that family member at the annual Thanksgiving gathering.
This year, God allowed Maranatha Grace to once again host Vacation Bible School for children all across the local greater Fort Lee community. More than 100 kids registered and attended this year's VBS. Praise God that He allowed them to learn the Gospel through teaching, games, crafts, and songs!
In this video, our Children's Ministry and VBS Director, Jane Kim, shares with us what she learned and was encouraged by from this year's VBS.
What do ravens, leprosy, and the highest mountain on Earth have in common?
Everest VBS 2015 is in full swing!
While it is a great challenge to climb Mt. Everest, Earth's highest mountain, we are learning this week that God has mighty power, and with Him, we can conquer any challenge.
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.
