Seeking to equip people to live as Christian disciples wherever God has placed them.


Welcome to Grace Presbyterian Church. We are a dynamic and diverse congregation who gather together in the name of Jesus Christ for worship, discipleship and service. As Christ’s followers we strive to grow in God’s love and show it in lives that are transformed, using the ageless truths of the Bible as our foundation.

Grace offers compelling opportunities for all ages from adult discipleship to choir to Sunday School and youth groups to service projects. Wherever you are in your faith pilgrimage, we hope you’ll join us and experience the life-changing message of the Gospel.

Putting Faith into Practice

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, June 28, 2015

Series: Facing Jesus

Text:I Timothy 4:11-16


Paul’s advice to Timothy in this section comes down essentially to one phrase: “Put these things into practice” (I Timothy 4:15).  If we aren’t living out our faith then what we say has little meaning.  Even our involvement in church or other Christian groups isn’t significant if it doesn’t carry over into our day to day lives.  The Christian life for Paul is a balancing act.  We need to be examples of faith in Christ, not in any superior way but in a way that demonstrates humility, hope and love. We don’t need to defend ourselves or give in to any fears of criticism or rejection.  We need to be encouraging one another.  This is one reason Paul is so opposed to quarrels, controversy and dissension (I Timothy 6:3-5; Titus 3:8-11; Ephesians 4:31).  Finally we have to be prepared to evaluate our own actions, lives and beliefs.  Paul acknowledges that the gospel itself is controversial.  However, we do not possess the gospel.  The gospel possesses us.  Others, believers and non-believers, need to see that in our lives.

The Epistle to the Ephesians

Ephesians 4:1-32: “Truth is in Jesus”

June 3, 2015

Paul in this chapter is offering nothing less than a blueprint, a model of the church not as it is but as it should be. Paul affirms again and again the unity of the church.  The unity however is not an end in itself.  It is the result of focusing on the truth which is in Jesus alone.  Paul mentions the theme of truth several times throughout this chapter (vv. 15, 21, 24, 25).  This truth stands over against the darkened futility of the world which is simultaneously a danger and a mission for the church.
