mission statement

Our mission at Graces of Gurley is to be the hands and feet of Christ through faithful prayer and service to the Gurley community as the Lord leads.

"But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.  But do this with gentleness and respect."  1 Peter 3:15 

the goal

We desire to foster a community where people can begin to understand the depth of God's love. We are confident that this understanding can transform our community as fully as it has us personally. We pray that people would become quick to help and slow to take offense, that they walk with the Lord through prayer and service and that they are filled with the joy of Christ as they live day to day. We pray that people that serve are transformed by the friendships they make and the tendering of their hearts beyond all understanding.

"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you;  I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws."  Ezekiel 36: 26, 27
