Dec 27, 2012 God Stirred My Heart…
I grew up in a traditional faith. At times, my family went to church a lot but mostly it was only Christmas and Easter. When I went to catechism I always wondered how everyone else knew all these things about Jesus and I did not. As an adult, I continued in my church attendance but something was missing.
One day, my family nurse practitioner invited me to Grace. At the time, GCC was meeting at the Lifeway building downtown. God stirred my heart. I could not stop thinking about visiting this church that was not of my tradition. The first day I visited, I felt truly welcomed. The songs spoke to me and the preaching made sense. I found what was missing in my heart. I have NEVER left after that first visit. Grace has been here for me through many trials (illnesses, deaths of family members, struggles with infertility) and blessings too (the joyous birth of my son). I feel blessed to be a part of such a wonderful community.
