Welcome to Grace’s Resource Page.

We all live busy lives.  Adult Sunday School may be part of our weekly regimen - we have carved out some space on our calendars to be in class.  All well and good.

For many though, the challenges of regular Sunday School attendance can conflict with work or other obligations.  Some may be touched by one of Jason’s Sunday messages, and have a desire to delve deeper, but don’t know where to turn.  Even those who do attend Sunday School, may have missed a session due to travel or illness.  So there can be gaps….

We are urged to study the Bible and apply Holy Scripture to our daily living and develop or spiritual appetites.  So how do we support our members who have difficulty attending Sunday School?  How do we nurture the curious and concerned member who wants a deeper relationship with God and a better understanding of the Sermons?  How do we support a church member who missed a session or someone who is just visiting and give them a view of what they can learn and experience as Jesus Followers?

We are providing this page to better serve all of our members and guests with a Sunday School perspective.  Life is complex, yet the Bible has answers to all of our questions and challenges.  These internet links are a wellspring of sound teaching, and God’s presence is revealed in these links with plenty of reference to scripture.

Grace’s mission: “A life connected to God and a life connected to one another is the most meaningful life there is.”  If these messages help these “connections” and bring you peace and understanding, we have accomplished much.  God Bless You on your journey.

Eyes on the Road 201701 - http://northpoint.org/messages/eyesontheroad2017/

When Grace Shows Up 201610 - http://northpoint.org/messages/when-grace-shows-up/

All of us have more of a story than others may realize. Edward Bailey is no different.

The Three Nots  201610 - http://northpoint.org/messages/the-three-nots/

Skin in the Game  201607 - http://northpoint.org/messages/071016-message/

Saved By The Church 201602 - http://northpoint.org/messages/saved-by-the-church/

Brand: New  201502 - http://brandnewseries.org

Killin' It  201411 - http://killinitseries.org

There’s something that rises up in each of us. It keeps us from apologizing, admitting we’re wrong, or showing weakness. It keeps us from forgiving. It causes us to lie about our pasts, to cheat instead of lose, and to feel happy when someone else fails.

Why in the World 201403 - http://whyseries.org

Ask It  201401 - http://justaskit.org

Right in the Eye  201311 - http://rightintheeye.org

“It's my life. I should be free to do what I want, when I want, with whom I want . . . as long as I'm not hurting anybody.” This is what we tell ourselves. But what if it's not true?

Free  201210 - http://wecanbefree.org

Future Family 201208 - http://futurefamily.org

Family....We all have one.  While some of us loved our 'growing up' years, others of us couldn't wait to move out and start fresh.  Either way, we want our Future Family to be a step up from our families of origin.
