MARK-SERIES

THIS SUNDAY: THE MOVIE TRAILER YOU NEED TO SEE

And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. – Mark 9:2-3 (ESV)

The story of the transfiguration is like a movie trailer. A trailer takes all the best parts of a movie, runs them all together and adds music. The idea is to get you to buy into the movie, get excited and go watch it. When they’re showing the trailers before a movie and you see a good one, what do you lean over to your friend and say? “Hey, let’s go see that movie!” That’s the purpose for the trailer. That is what Jesus was doing in the transfiguration. You might say, “That’s great, but what will help us here on earth in our walk with God?” The transfiguration can still affect you today. Peter was overwhelmed by the glory of God at the transfiguration. We, too, can be overwhelmed and in awe of the glory of God. Actually, it’s vital to our growth in faith to experience and see the glory of God. When we experience His glory we are changed more and more into the image of God’s Son. So how do we get ourselves in awe of the glory of God? That’s what we’re going to dig into this Sunday. We’re going to see how we can be in awe of God in our day-to-day life. I hope you can join us Sunday, 11am at Hyatt Place Hotel, as we continue this message series called, “What It Really Looks Like to Have a Relationship with Jesus.”

EASTER 2016.001

Alive: How Jesus’ Life Changes Yours

 “But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us…made us alive together with Christ…” Ephesians 2:4, 5

On that first Easter Sunday morning Jesus walked out of the tomb. In rising again from the dead He became the Victor over death. Did you know He didn’t just gain victory over death for Himself? He didn’t do it only to show the world that He is God. He came alive for us; for you and for me! If He had stayed dead we would have no faith and no hope of forgiveness, to experience His power in this life, and live with God in eternity. Because Jesus triumphed over death those who trust in Him can experience new life! You, too, can be alive! How can we experience this new life in the here-and-now 2,000 years after Jesus rose from the dead? The book of Ephesians says God, “made us alive together with Christ.” What does that mean and how can we walk in this newness of life each day? In our worship service on Easter Sunday we’ll look into this truth and discover how Jesus’ resurrected life changes our lives today. Join us at 11am, Sunday, March 27th for our Easter Worship Service at Hyatt Place Hotel.

He Is Alive!

WE ARE FAMILY: Current Sunday Message Series

We Are Family.001

We at Capital City Grace consider each other family. It’s our goal to treat everyone in the church like family, because Jesus’ church is the family of God. This series is taking a look what we value at Capital City Grace. This three week series will take one Sunday to focus on one of our three values. Our values are what we aim for and celebrate as a church. Our values are:

GATHERING TO JESUS

It’s our desire to connect with people in our lives and pray for them, connect with them and gather them to Jesus, so they will have the opportunity to follow Him if they so choose.

GROWING IN JESUS

It’s important to us to see each individual grow in their personal relationship with Jesus, as well as us as a church growing numerically seeing more and more people come to follow Jesus.

GOING WITH JESUS

Living on mission in our daily lives.  Jesus gave believers the Great Commission to “go and make disciples” of him.  He doesn’t expect us to do this alone.  He said he will be “with us always” (Matt. 28) as we are living on mission with Him.  Therefore, we say we are going with Jesus on mission.
