reframe

GOT QUESTIONS, WORRIES, FEARS?   THAT'S OK....JOIN US!
reframe
10:45 am Sundays
(please note there will be ONE SERVICE @ 10am on 7/9/17 due to the church picnic)
 
At Grace-St. Paul's UMC, we believe that God is OK with our questions.  In fact, we feel God invites us to come and express our worries, frustrations, and fears in an authentic way, as we seek to understand what life is really all about. 
 
So, if the pressures and questions of life seem overwhelming at times, plan to be part of the growing reframe community.  
 ----
During Jesus' life, few things frustrated him more than when he saw religious practices get in the way of the healing, hope, and redemption that God wants to share with everyone.
 
Matthew 11:28-30 says "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."  
 
If YOU are struggling with burdens you've encountered with "religion", know that Jesus longs to bring healing and hope.  Consider joining us at reframe and leaving that burden with Jesus, and then continue to release it to God in prayer each day throughout the week.  

And...know that we @GSP commit to walking WITH you in love, EACH STEP OF THE WAY!
 
What can I expect @ reframe??

We feel giving is a joyful response to God's goodness in our lives.
