This month we officially launch the process of appointing additional elders to serve within the Grace Chapel family. The current leadership has taken the time to begin investing prayerfully in this process, and we are inviting you to join along with us. Elders serve as shepherds over the flock, teachers of people, and overseers of the church’s vision. As we work through this process we will learn why God values these leaders and their contribution highly, and why we should as well. This week we see just how important the quality of the leader is in the eyes of God.

Following the Exodus, Moses found himself leading a nation of people who didn’t know what it meant to be a people. In reality, Moses was a leader who sometimes didn’t know what it meant to be a leader. In Exodus 18, it is apparent that his father-in-law has been watching him struggle and out of concern for Moses, he offers some advice. In short, he tells him, “Don’t go it alone.” In this, we learn an important lesson about leadership. No leader should lead alone. This is also God’s plan for the church. We need multiple leaders with different gifts, all who have the heart of God for His people. As we prepare to appoint new Elders at GC, we will take the time to learn this important leadership lesson.

In Luke 19:10, Jesus gives his summary of Jesus’ mission on earth when he quotes Jesus saying, “For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost.” These words come on the heels of an encounter with one of the New Testament’s most notorious figures, a man named Zacchaeus. The story of Zacchaeus teaches us some powerful lessons about God and about people as well, most importantly that Jesus is willing to be a guest of sinners. Jesus still makes His presence known in the lives of sinners today. It is His willingness to step into our sin-filled lives, to seek us out while we are far from Him, that changes everything . . . even us.

For the month of August, we will spend time in the letter that Paul wrote to the church in Philippi. Paul writes for a number of reasons, among them, the desire to guide these young Christians along as they learn what it means to live as a family of believers. The lessons he teaches them, both through his example and the words he writes, have value for us as well. This week, as it relates to relationship and community, we learn the importance of choosing to rebuild and restore what has been broken.

The lessons he teaches them, both through his example and the words he writes, have value for us as well. This week we will witness the power of the attitude of humility as it pertains to building relationship and community with others. It is Jesus own actions and example that serve as both the inspiration and the pathway forward as we seek to embrace true humility in our relationships with others.
