“Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.”
This love does not originate with us. It begins with God.Read More
When Laurie and I moved to Michigan from Texas many years ago, we had no idea that winter would seem to last half the year. We learned the local custom to take off our shoes when we’d enter someone’s home, for the practical reason that half the year there was snow or ice or slush on the ground that made everyone’s shoes a mess.Read More
In the Gospel today, we have one of the pinnacle moments in the story of Jesus. Peter is the first of the disciples to declare that Jesus is the messiah, the promised one sent from God. Never before has Peter spoken in this way. Never before has any disciple spoken in this way.Read More
In high school I had a friend who was an excellent water skier. He was so good in fact he could step onto the water from a standing start at the dock or the shore and ski barefooted. Every time I saw him do that I marveled at his skill and wondered if he could teach me, but the few times I tried, I sank like a rock and ended up feeling like a failure, maybe like Peter.Read More
A family is fishing on one of the beautiful lakes in the Ozarks, parents with a nine year old who is already very interested in science and a five year old full of wonder. The sun is setting and the western sky is full of colors; red, purple, orange.Read More
We are a small but growing congregation of the Episcopal Diocese of Arkansas. As such, we belong to the Episcopal Church, U.S.A., and to the world-wide Anglican Communion. Our members represent a diverse range of religious and social backgrounds, ages, and political perspectives. We are united, however, in our baptismal identity as children of God, through the grace of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Common worship, centered on celebration of the Holy Eucharist, is at the heart of our life together. When we come together at the Lord’s Table, we receive forgiveness and renewal so that we can live out our baptismal calling to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves. Grace Church has numerous outreach ministries in response to this calling. We also strive to grow in the Christian faith and life through educational opportunities for all ages.
We are an open-minded, open-hearted community who enjoy each other’s company. Exceptional music enhances our worship. We often eat together and laugh together, and we are good at caring for each other. Please visit us. You will be very welcome.
