Evident Grace Partners for South Carolina Flood Relief

Evident Grace Partners for South Carolina Flood Relief

Mere weeks ago, South Carolina suffered from what many called a “thousand year” event.  Heavy rains flooded the rivers and banks, and devastation overran much of the area leaving many with damaged homes and even more homeless.  Business and government buildings were not spared either.  Sadly, in our minute by minute culture the events a month ago have been long forgotten while the need ever increases.  Just this past week, rains once again flooded much of the SC. Evident Grace, like…

Help Evident Grace assist South Carolina flood victims

Help Evident Grace assist South Carolina flood victims

The flooding devastation in SC has been described as a “Once in a 1,000 year” event, and some newscasters have been so bold as to declare it as, “Biblical in scope”.  The bottom line is that the cost is in the 100’s of millions, and the loss of life and effects on people’s lives will be felt for generations. Evident Grace wants to help, and we want to invite the church and the community to partner with us.  Our denomination’s disaster…

Evident Grace Moves to Courthouse Road Elementary on 08/02

Evident Grace is excited to announce that we will begin meeting for worship services at Courthouse Road Elementary (CRES) on August 2nd.  Why the move you may ask?  EG’s mission is that God’s grace made evident in our lives enables us to make God’s grace evident to the world.  We do that through our community, our worship, and our service.  Moving to CRES gives us a greater platform and ability to do those things. We have loved our present (and…

The Essential Nature of General Assembly for the Church

The Essential Nature of General Assembly for the Church

Why should Ruling and Teaching Elders leaving their churches for a week, travel hours away, and vote on motions and even obscure points of theology each year? When I (Gordon) became a Ruling Elder some 15 years ago, I thought that General Assembly was at best a boondoggle and at worst a boring use of time. However, my attitude soon changed. While General Assembly does offer great opportunities for fun, and there are some tedious moments of Robert’s Rules of…

What To Expect From Elders

What To Expect From Elders

Biblically, a church is commanded by God to have elders, and the qualifications for such an office are outlined in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 This office is an overseeing and shepherding office designed to “keep watch over your souls” (Hebrews 13:17). With as much ink as the Bible gives to both examples and qualifications, it is astounding how many churches disregard the office. Listen to a few of the dozen plus examples in scripture: Acts 20:28 “Pay careful…

The Art and Grace of Helping Someone Move

The Art and Grace of Helping Someone Move

When I arrived in Virginia, it was on the heels of several moves. Everyone from a church member to the chief of police helped me get here. When Amy and I finally got into our apartment, so many folks from Evident Grace showed up that I didn’t even know everyone’s name. What I did know was that we were being cared for and that people loved us. There is a unique blessing in helping someone move. Showing up early to…
