We are so thankful to announce that Grace Life of Senatobia will begin weekly Worship Services on Easter Sunday. This is the next phase in the life of our church plant. God is so faithful and has grown our core group over the last two years and we are taking this step of faith to follow Him. What has led us to this point?
In the fall of 2016, a group of believers began to meet on Wednesday nights. The focus of these meetings was to study the Bible together (2 Timothy 3:16-17) and to pray for one another (James 5:16). Throughout these two years, we went through an evangelism training course twice. Times were planned to go into the community to share the Gospel. The Lord has blessed and we have seen eight people profess faith in Jesus Christ by being baptized. Currently our core group is around 25 adults, teens and children who meet weekly.
We are so thankful for those who have encouraged us from the very beginning, most notably being our sponsor church, Grace Life of the Shoals in Muscle Shoals, Al , Anchored in Truth, a Missions organization involved in church planting throughout the World and Great Commission Church in Olive Branch, MS
Our goal for Grace Life is not to be a traditional church or a contemporary church. We don’t want to be identified by labels as they relate to Worship styles, family or doctrine. While we have a specific confessional statement, (The 2000 Baptist Faith and Message), denominational identification is not our primary identity. Our goal is to be a Christ Centered Church. Colossians 1:18, in speaking of Christ, says, “That in all things, He might have the preeminence.”
On Easter Sunday we will have a Worship Service at 11:00 am. at the Senatobia library. After this we will have a fellowship lunch by enjoying food that people will bring. When lunch is over, we will travel to Sycamore Park to have an Easter Egg Hunt.
Our weekly Worship Services will happen each Sunday morning at 11:00 am at the Senatobia Library. We will start our weekly services with a series of expository messages through the book of 2 Timothy. On Wednesday nights we will continue our discussion oriented Bible Study by considering the major doctrines that the Bible teaches (God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Trinity), Creation, The Gospel, Conversion, etc.) .
We will start Cell groups as the Lord raises up leaders and there is a clear need for them as our ministry is multiplied. We realize that church planting is a marathon race and not a sprint, therefore we are keeping in mind a 20 year vision for the Lord to grow and to mature us. Our goal and purpose from day one is to be Christ centered. We can seek to always have this focus no matter how small or large our numbers may be or whatever form our specific ministries take.
Come and join up with us as we grow in the Lord.
