Our Next Sermon Series
The word Advent literally means “to arrive.” It is also the time each year in Christianity meant to draw our hearts to focus on what the arrival of Jesus really means in our lives. This year, at GREFC, we are aligning our Advent services with the traditional Sundays of Advent. We will be focusing in on Jesus’ birth story in Luke 1-2 and looking at how these six Sundays all display different perspectives on Jesus’ birth. But even more than that, through the lens of these six Sundays, we are going to look at how the entire biblical story- and the whole of human history- ultimately points us to this moment: the true invitation of the Advent of Jesus Christ. So, please, join us this Christmas season as we look to and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ together.

Last Sunday’s Message
Micah Labovitch - September 18, 2022
Gather. Sacrifice. Worship.
Scripture References: Ezra 3:1-13
From Series: "Ezra: The Lord Restores His People"
For seventy years in exile and captivity, the people of God were chastised and broken. Having ignored hundreds of years of warnings from His prophets, God finally allowed Jerusalem to be destroyed and a remnant to be taken to Babylon. His people were devastated, distraught, and disciplined. But then, the call for restoration came. We have all been there. The Lord has allowed us to face the consequences of our choices, and sometimes they have been severe. But then, by the grace of God, the call of restoration comes. This is where the book of Ezra begins. Join us as we study Ezra together this fall, looking at the restoration of God’s people, and how it all ultimately points to the final restoration His people will have in Jesus Christ.
