41 Years

41 YEARS TODAY WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL WOMAN. Happy Anniversary Sweetheart. She’s gotten more beautiful inside & out and I’ve – well – I’ve aged.

Young Adults – We’ve certainly had our ups & downs, made lots of mistakes & have been through tragedy together, but the key for us has been our choice to maintain a growing relationship with Jesus. A common commitment to follow Christ by seeking His direction in prayer and striving to apply what He tells us in His Word (the Bible) has made the biggest difference in our relationship and family.

Enjoyed an anniversary weekend in Boston with Alan & Jeannine Powers & got a chance to watch a game from the Green Monster!

June 30 – INCREDIBLE – Grace Fellowship June 2018

This is one of my favorite props of all time because it helped explain the simple truth of the Gospel in a visual way from Romans 6:23.  More importantly, I love it because a number of people understood the gospel that day and committed their lives to Jesus.

We’re celebrating 15 years and looking forward to an INCREDIBLE FUTURE as our purpose is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ!

June 29 – INCREDIBLE – Grace Fellowship June 2018

Every time I drive onto this property I’m reminded of what a miracle Grace is.  I’m reminded of what Jesus did for us as I view the crosses and I’m reminded of our mandate (found engraved into our outdoor baptistry) to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves (Great Commandment – Mt. 22:34-40)…and that we’re to go into all the world and make disciples by telling people about Jesus, baptizing them and teaching them to obey His commands (Great Commission – Mt. 28:19-20).

Celebrating 15 years as “The Miracle in a Cow Pasture” and looking forward to an INCREDIBLE FUTURE.

June 28 – INCREDIBLE – Grace Fellowship June 2018

I will long remember this special night of worship and communion.  As people took communion they were to take a red marble and carry it with them as a daily reminder of the blood Christ shed for them.   One of my friends, Del Pitts, who is with Jesus now, drove a big rig and Del glued his marble to the console of his truck as his daily reminder.

We’re celebrating 15 years and looking forward to an INCREDIBLE FUTURE.

Going way back to Summer in Paradise!  This was in June of 2005.  My hair was dark and Jerry had hair.   Jerry’s holding Alanna who had just finished Kindergarten (she just finished her Freshman year at Texas A & M this year!)

We’re celebrating 15 years and looking forward to an INCREDIBLE FUTURE.

I like things (like motorcycles) that are fast & loud, and we’ve enjoyed some great times with motorcycles at Grace. We have a lot of people who like to ride which is always a blast.  We’re celebrating 15 years and looking forward to an INCREDIBLE FUTURE.

Danny “da paperboy” Cooper tried to share Christ with me and my wife Janet at a Starbucks in Fort Worth years ago and we’ve been friends ever since.  We’ve enjoyed having Danny at Grace on a number of occasions.  I love this young man’s heart and love for the Lord, his ability to rap & lead worship, and his love for Grace Fell0wship.   We’re celebrating 15 years and looking forward to an INCREDIBLE FUTURE!

I love it when we get to baptize people and our next celebration of baptism is on Sunday, July 1st.  If you want to know more, go to gf.church/baptism or stop by the HUB on Sunday to find out how you can take your Next Step.   Through the years, we’ve baptized at homes, motels, campgrounds, in a horse trough, at the lake, and at Grace.  A few of those memories are below as we celebrate 15 years and look forward to an INCREDIBLE FUTURE.

I’m grateful we live in an agricultural area because that made it a lot easier to find a prop when preaching on the lost sheep, lost coin and lost son from Luke 15.  We’ve had some amazing props as a part of our messages over the years, but this sheep added to the noise and excitement!    We’re celebrating 15 years and looking forward to a more INCREDIBLE FUTURE!
