Images of the Spirit
Austin Crow - Upstairs
How do you picture the Holy Spirit? As a vague fuzzy cloud? Or an invisible, impersonal force? The Bible is clear that the Holy Spirit is a person, and it provides strong word pictures of the Spirit as wind, fire, a counselor, anointing oil. As you study these your mental picture of the Spirit comes into focus and you can have a real relationship with the Third Person of the Trinity.
God’s People Worship
International Class in Fellowship Hall
This study of Isaiah, Ezra, and Nehemiah looks at worship in the Old Testament. How does Christian worship today mirror both the good and bad practices of the ancient world? What can we learn from God’s relationship with the worshiping community in Israel that can help us honor and worship God in our communities of faith?

GRACE CHURCH IS
What exactly IS “orange”? ORANGE is a strategy for combining critical influences in life to fuel faith in the next generation. ORANGE is a strategy that combines the strength of two - yellow and red - to create the brilliance of another, ORANGE. By combining the critical influences of the light of the church and the love of the family, the ORANGE strategy synchronizes efforts and shows a generation who God is, more effectively than either could alone.
ORANGE is a comprehensive plan. Imagine every leader and every parent in our church with exactly the same strategy in mind for reaching the end goal. From preschool to college/career., it draws on the elements of wonder, discovery and passion, infusing them into children, students and young adults. Why? To see God for who He is, to help young people see themselves the way God sees them, so that they can love others the way God does. Starting with wonder, ORANGE helps preschoolers embrace a God who is bigger than their imagination, then adds discovery so children can understand how to grow in their relationship with God. Finally, ORANGE fuels passion by giving students opportunities to be the church and to make a difference influencing their generation.
ORANGE is a unique approach to curriculum. The ORANGE curriculum is always relevant, biblical, engaging and experiential. Six distinctives of ORANGE include: perpetually innovative, parent linked, leader networked, uniquely customizable, strategically synchronized, and relationally driven. ORANGE is a community. When you’re ORANGE, you’re not alone!
