Grafted Life Ministries

Grafted Life Ministries exists to resource the church in helping people grow closer to God and each other. Grafted Life partners with communities of believers (churches, small groups, etc.)

to: * prayerfully and intentionally seek to discern what God is doing, * offer practical, real direction that begins with where people are, * cultivate communities that offer safety, reconciliation, hope and belonging, and * create experiential opportunities for loving encounters with God, each other and the world. Our resources: * Focus on what it means to talk and walk with God every moment of the day, in all aspects of life. We integrate the whole person into our relationship with God: physical, emotional, relational, intellectual. * Help people discover what it means to live their lives WITH God, rather than around Him, from Him, or for Him. * Integrate an outward-in (the use of spiritual disciplines to affect a person’s habits toward God) with an inward-out (the use of reflection on personal motivations, emotions and deep beliefs) approach to discipleship.

Mission: Our mission is to provide material and support to the church which provide for: Biblical Teaching to understand what Scripture instructs and illustrates regarding all of our relationships. Experiential Learning to employ hands-on, heart-penetrating exercises that explore love in real life circumstances. Growing Together to practice within the Body of Christ and support one another in love, to love

Operating as usual

As we turned the page to a new year, one we all pray is vastly different from the last, what are you looking forward to?

Disrupted: A Time to Pause and Partner with God | Grafted Life Ministries

2020 has been a challenging year for us all. Churches have had unique challenges to overcome. Most remain in some stage of moving toward a new normal.

Grafted Life has created a downloadable resource with practical tools that we believe will help church staff and lay leaders discern their way through.

Celebrating 10 Years of Ministry

The year 2020 sure seemed like a good time to look toward the future. The anticipation of a new decade inspired many of us to reflect on where we were headed. Dreams started to take shape about what a new decade could hold.

Then March happened.

I just saw that another public Christian figure has renounced his faith. It's sad because, if you read below the headline, you find something interesting:

He says "I'm open to the idea that God is there. I'd prefer it if he was. I suspect if he is there, he is very different than what I was taught."

I'm guessing that's the case, Jon. Wish we were close and could hang out. To everyone else, this is the work of Grafted Life. There's a whole aspect to the Christian story most have never heard.

If you have wondered about the small group studies offered by Grafted Life Ministries, now you can experience them from home! We are offering an online group for the study entitled Do You Love Me? This study is 4 weeks in length.

If you are interested please send an email to [email protected] and you'll get added to the list!
