Our mission is to: “Love and Lead real people into the meaningful life Christ intends!”
We each get to own that mission personally! So, what do we do together as a church to help the mission get accomplished?
Our Strategy answers the “How?” question!
Or as we say on the website,
“We accomplish our mission with a five point strategy!
At Point of Grace we each commit to engage in weekly Worship, experience the Alpha Course, Grow in a group, Serve on a team and Bring others who need to discover the meaningful life Christ intends!
All of us doing all of this all the time!
- Weekly worship plays is vital for the “meaningful life”!
- What about the “Alpha Course?”
- What is “Bring”?
Two big questions helped form the heart of Point of Grace!
- Do I (we) have a heart for people far from God?
- If so, what is my (our) intentional strategy to love and lead them to Jesus and His meaningful life?
35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.
....ἐσπλαγχνίσθη περὶ αὐτῶν .... “gut stirring compassion”
35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!” 37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?” They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?” 39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon. 40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which, translated, is Peter).
43 The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.” 44 Philip, like Andrew and Peter, was from the town of Bethsaida. 45 Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 46 “Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?” Nathanael asked. “Come and see,” said Philip. 47 When Jesus saw Nathanael approaching, he said of him, “Here truly is an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.” 48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked. Jesus answered, “I saw you while you were still under the fig tree before Philip called you.” 49 Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel.”
He trusts us to bring!
We trust him to be Jesus!
