Grace Family, please pray for the Husted family, as they say goodbye to Heath.
Thank you so much for remembering my dear husband, Bob Foster. We both loved Grace and Bob did so much for the church and community. May God continue to bless you in all you do.
love, Shirley
If you can help, please do. Roman was a great kid.

Good morning Grace Family!!!
John & Dorothy Thomas
Good morning.
Tried to get into the FB page for Grace this morning for our sermon. Was so looking forward to it, but couldn't get on. Kept getting us back to something we had already seen, but not the current sermon. So sad. Have a wonderful Memorial weekend everyone. Stay safe.
Sarah Spain have a look!
At home. Not at Alamo Home Care
I'm writing a daily devotional for our whole congregation to use during Lent (beginning February 26th) and I'm needing someone to read through it and proof it for me. So, if you love spelling/grammar and you want a sneak-peak at what's coming for Lent at Grace, then comment below or PM me. Thanks!
Just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful music at the Grace campus service this morning. The Pans of Grace played those carols with such spirit and joy, the choir sang the most lovely arrangement of "Lo How a Rose E'er Blooming" and Holly &Ann sang an amazing duet combining "The Rose with Lo How a Rose E'er Blooming". We are blessed to have these talents shared with us and to the Glory of the Lord!
Today is the day! Join us at 10 AM for our combined worship service at our Alamogordo Campus. You don't want to miss NEW CONSECRATION SUNDAY!
As we prepare for New Consecration Sunday this weekend, be sure to check out our most recent sermon, and discover how "you don't have to wait for heaven; you can have heaven today!" Then join us this Sunday for our 10 AM worship service as we share heaven with our community in a powerful way.

A caring, compassionate, Grace-centered church reaching Alamogordo and Otero County with the love of God by sharing our time, our talents and our gifts.

2-Minute Sermon: More Than a Coupon

The redemption that God offers us is more than just a good deal on a feel-good Jesus; that's nothing but cheap grace. No, this story of redemption in the Old Testament, and in the entire Bible, is in fact God's story of Redemption FOR YOU!

Each Sunday, Pastor Kelly and an awesome group of adults personally pour into the lives of our kiddos by taking them step by step through the entire biblical story of God's love. Last Sunday they discovered the importance of being L.O.Y.A.L. as we follow God, Just like Abraham was: *L*oving God and others, *O*ffering all we have to the Lord, saying *Y*es(!) to God, having *A*llegiance to God and God alone, and trusting that we will *L*ack nothing as we follow the Jesus Christ. If you're looking for a church with a Pastor who personally teaches and works with children, then Grace might just be God's place for you! Join us for worship each Sunday for worship at 9:30 AM, and then Kid's Club with the Pastor at 10:30 AM

Holloman Air Force Base to get Afghan refugees

People of Grace, let's be praying for God to stir in our hearts and to reach out with radical love and hospitality in any way possible to support refugees coming soon to Holloman. May we truly be the hands and feet of Christ in this time to so many who need it now more than ever. More to come as we discern and discover how we can best help.

Holloman Air Force Base to get Afghan refugees The U.S. Department of Defense announced Aug. 27 that Holloman AFB is among three military installations that will begin taking Afghan refugees soon.

"In addition to staying in relation with God, relationship with the world, and in relationship with the entire Body of Christ throughout the world and through history, look and see what relationship there first Christians also strive to keep nurture and grow: "All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need. Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts..."" (Acts 2:44-46)

2-Minute Sermon: How to REALLY share Jesus with others in the 21st Century

Sharing Jesus doesn't have to be scary or something just for the "professionals," but it can (and must) be something that all who profess to follow Jesus do on a regular basis. It's really as simple (and as powerful) as telling YOUR story, and letting Jesus do the rest. Check out the clip below and then watch the whole sermon at https://youtu.be/N5tQpb_DfTY?t=1237

[WEDNESDAYS WITH WESLEY by Pastor Kelly]

WHY WAIT FOR HEAVEN?

What if I told you that the point of Christianity wasn’t just to get to heaven? What if I told you that the point of following Jesus wasn’t only to get other people to heaven either? What if I told you God had something EVEN MORE AMAZING in mind? “More amazing than getting to heaven?” you may be asking yourself, and to that I say yes(!), absolutely(!), even more amazing than getting to heaven!

In 1746, John Wesley (founder of the Methodist movement) published a sermon titled “The Spirit of Bo***ge & Adoption,” and in it we see his passion and concern not just for the eternal states of the souls of humanity, but in humanities life NOW, TODAY, IN THIS LIFE. He believed that the grace of God was bigger and better than just getting people into heaven. But what God really wanted more than anything was to get heaven into people right now, today, and also into eternity!

So many people profess faith in their eternal state in heaven, yet they still live in so much fear and sin and guilt and shame today. And they do because they’ve never stopped to really ask themselves the questions that Wesley so powerfully asks in this sermon: “Examine yourself… What is the ruling principle in your soul? Is it the love of God? Is it the fear of God? Or is it neither one nor the other? Is it not rather the love of the world? The love of pleasure? Or gain? Or easy; or reputation?”

Then comes that all important and life transformation question, “Have you heaven in your heart? Have you the Spirit of Adoption, ever crying, ‘Abba, Father’?”

Well, have you? Are you not only saved for a future in heaven, but are you experiencing the realities of heaven in your life—in your heart—today? And if not, if you don’t yet know what this means, if you don’t yet know the realities and grace and joy of heaven on earth today, then pray for God to open your heart to it today. Pray that God, by the power of the Spirit, and through Christ our Lord, will do a mighty work of grace in your life to shake you awake to the reality of your need of a savior TODAY, free you from the bo***ge of guilt and shame TODAY, and shed his heavenly love fully abroad in your heart TODAY and into all of eternity! For “Thou art not called to fear and tremble, like devils, but to rejoice and love, like the angels of God”… TODAY!
