GraceLife Church of Calgary
We are a newly organized Bible teaching church seeking a permanent home in south east Calgary. We would love to have you join us each Sunday as we meet for worship at the New Brighton Club House 2 New Brighton Drive SE at 10:30AM for worship (Childcare for ags 0-5 will run during the service). Children's Church for ages 5-8 will startup in September. (Details). Sunday September 28th Service starts at 11AM (Nursery available, but no children's church) as we worship together, study the Bible's teaching about marriage and celebrate the wedding of two of our members.
We have framed our ministry around the gospel. Great contentment is ours because of it—we find ourselves of the same mind as that of, D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones who wrote in The Heart of the Gospel (Wheaton, Ill.: Crossway, 1991), 165–66:
"In the gospel, I find satisfaction to my mind that I find nowhere else.… There is no problem of my life but that the gospel deals with it and answers it. I find intellectual rest and an answer to all my questions. And, thank God, my heart and my desires are also satisfied. I find complete satisfaction in Christ. There is no desire, there is nothing that my heart can crave for but He can more than satisfy. All the restlessness of desire is quelled by Him as He breathes His peace into my troubles and problems and restlessness. . .
So I am given rest in spite of my circumstances. The gospel enables me to say with the Apostle Paul, “I am persuaded”—which means, I am certain—“that neither death nor life nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom. 8:38–39). That is perfect rest which is independent of circumstances; that is to be calm in the midst of a storm."
Grace exists to live and share God's grace, as the body of Christ in south Calgary, making disciples who fulfill the great commission; prepared together through expository preaching and teaching, spiritual leadership and biblical community.
