Hi friend–

I often find myself humming or singing songs in the car or when I’m walking. One of those is a song that came out several years ago, Who You Say I Am. For those who have been redeemed by Jesus, we can sing together:

Who the Son sets free

Oh is free indeed

I’m a child of God, yes, I am

In my Father’s house

There’s a place for me

I’m a child of God, yes, I am (are you humming yet?!) 🙂

This Sunday, we have dozens of people in our church family who will be declaring that truth through baptism. If you would like to join that group in publicly declaring Jesus as your Savior and Lord, you can find information here. Don’t let nervousness about being baptized in front of others keep you from following the way of Jesus and demonstrating your allegiance to him.

Anyone is also invited to the Spiritual Freedom Seminar tomorrow, May 18, Room 203 (Middleburg) from 9-11:30am. It’s a great opportunity to take a spiritual inventory of your life to see if there are any areas where strongholds can be broken and new freedom in Christ is found.  Gregg Carrick has done a terrific job leading this time of cleansing; we’ve had hundreds who have taken big steps of growth during this guided prayer experience.

I’ll be continuing our “Connect” series this Sunday with a message on “The Art of Asking Questions.” Learning this skill is a powerful way to strengthen relationships while reflecting the example and heart of Jesus. Invite a friend to join you!

May includes a focus on Mental Health Awareness and I’m grateful for the various avenues available at Grace that can help on the journey to health.  If you or someone you love could use some support, we would be glad to come alongside. Here are some resources available at Grace:

Whatever challenges we face on our journey, I’m deeply grateful that we can know this: “Who the Son sets free…Oh is free indeed.”

Praises to His name,

Jonathan
