Giving

Click the button above to navigate to our online giving platform. You can also drop a giving envelope off to the ushers on the way out of the sanctuary.

 

We appreciate your generosity!

 

Why do we give?: In the Old Testament, believers were required to bring a tenth of their income for the support of the ministry and the needs of the poor. The New Testament teaches that we should give as we are “able and even beyond [our] ability” (2 Cor. 8:3) pointing to the extraordinary generosity that Christ has demonstrated to us.

 

We know that when we trust God, and put Him first with our giving, He takes our gifts and blesses us back many times over. Thank you again for your faithfulness and generosity!

 

Sermon

The Testimony

GraceValley Church

Pastor Kurt Cullison

June 26, 2022

Acts 7:1-53

(1) The patriarchal period (7:2-16)

(2) Moses and the law (7:17-43)

(3) The tabernacle and temple (7:44-50)

1. ISRAEL’S HISTORY REVEALS GOD’S SOVEREIGN, ABUNDANT GRACE.

2. ISRAEL’S HISTORY REVEALS THEIR OWN STUBBORN, REBELLIOUS TENDENCY TO REJECT GOD’S GRACIOUS DEALINGS WITH THEM.

3. ISRAEL’S HISTORY REVEALS THEIR PATTERN OF LIMITING WORSHIP TO A SACRED PLACE, RATHER THAN TO A SACRED PERSON, WHO MADE ALL THAT IS.

1. WE SHOULD DECLARE GOD’S ABUNDANT MERCY TOWARD SINNERS.

2. WE SHOULD GUARD AGAINST PRESUMING ON GOD’S GRACE BY FALLING INTO A PATTERN OF SIN.

3. WE SHOULD GUARD AGAINST GOING THROUGH THE OUTWARD MOTIONS OF WORSHIP, WHEN OUR HEARTS ARE FAR FROM GOD.

4. WE SHOULD IMITATE STEPHEN BY BEING MORE CONCERNED ABOUT BEARING WITNESS TO THE TRUTH THAN ABOUT OUR OWN PROTECTION.
