A new year brings new «resolutions.’» But the problem is we rarely follow through on them. “My One Word” is an experiment designed to move you from resolutions to focus by picking ONE WORD.Mike Ashcroft has been challenging his church members to focus on one way that they would like to grow through the course of the year, and it has come with amazing results. Now he brings that same challenge to you in One Word, a 3-session, video-based challenge. This year, lose the long list of resolutions and find lasting change by spending an entire year focusing on just one thing that you most hope God will do in you.
Our resolutions seldom work because they are based on the type of person we’re tired of being rather than who God wants us to become. Plus, resolutions can be “broken,” leaving no room for the process of growth. What if our hopes for the year ahead centered instead on who God wants us to become, and the transformation process?It’s okay to want to be a better you, and the New Year is a natural time to start. The question is, how? My One Word replaces broken promises with a vision for real change. When you choose a single word, you have a clarity and focus. You are moving toward the future rather than swearing off the past.
2020 has been tough! We're so divided along Party lines, Economic lines, and now especially, Racial lines. That division has crept into some of our churches too. But God did not design the church to be that way. We should beUN-Divided!

We live in soul-scorching times. The 24-7 onslaught of contemporary life—with its never-ending feed of global tragedies, demands for our attention, and pressures of work, family, and friends—has left us feeling ragged, wrung-out, and emptied. But if we have no margin in our lives, how do we find room to change anything? In this life-changing video Bible study, John Eldredge distills a lifetime of wisdom into five practical and ready-to-implement practices for putting your life back together.
These practices include: (1) the one-minute pause, (2) benevolent detachment, (3) practicing kindness, (4) getting outside, and (5) stepping back from technology. These practices will enable you to begin recovery, focus on what matters most, disengage from the tragedies of this broken world, and discover the restorative power of beauty. You don't need to abandon your life to get it back. You can restore it here and now. And you will never be the same.

You are never alonemax lucadoIt can be painful to feel alone. But God is not far off and distant. He is not absent from your hurt. Join the You Are Never Alone Online Bible Study, and dive into the book of John with teacher Max Lucado to explore the miracles of Jesus. From the first recorded miracle at Cana to His death and resurrection, Jesus’ miracles point to a loving Savior who knows us, sees us, and cares for us.Was that not one of the final promises of Jesus? Before He ascended to Heaven, He assured his friends, “I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:20 ESV)
In this six-session video Bible Study with Max, you will be reassured that you are never stuck or without hope. You are never forgotten. This is the message of the miracles... that with God you are never alone. The Lord is near. Will you join us? There is hope to be found here
ZIMBABWE: This year a new team will be working in Zimbabwe, Africa near the city of Harare. Our goal is to establish a partnership with a local church, provide discipleship, women’s ministry, and children’s Bible study resources for the villages and local communities. We will be on location working in a rural setting, providing a holiday Bible school and L.I.F.E. Conference.
ZAMBIA: Grey Stone teams also travel to a location in Zambia, Africa. We work on location in the “bush country” working with the Mawawa people in the Western Province and in the city of Mongu. We will be working with local missionary Austin Maseka to organize a L.I.F.E. Conference for the villages and communities.
Since 2013, we have sent teams to a location in Asia to establish a relationship with on-site IMB Missionaries and prospective avenues for future work. We are attempting to supplement work with an unreached people group (the Nosu and Han people) under a 15-year commitment.
Grey Stone believes church planting is one of the most effective ways to spread the gospel of Christ. Grey Stone has planted many churches and most recently we are focused on the strategic city initiative with the North American Mission Board.
We are helping to plant churches in some of the most strategic cities in America. Presently, we are helping to plant a church in Boston. There are opportunities to go to Boston on short term mission trips as we support Victor Moura, the church planter, and the work at Grace Church.
Central America and Caribbean (C&C): Since 2008, Grey Stone has been sending teams to spread the gospel to Haiti with ministries in Port-au-Prince. Our teams have provided construction for three church plants, medical outreach, ministered to the orphans, led a teacher-academy at a school, trained local pastors, encouraged the missionaries at the orphanage, & worked in the community through evangelism efforts and compassion projects. We also have a rotating student project in Belize.
Grey Stone will send a 10-member medical mission team to the Roma Gypsies in Romania (a minority group on the edge of society in deep poverty). They will work with Hungarian Christians and an American missionary. This is a partnership with the NC Baptists on Mission.
We have two ongoing projects in the United States: Disaster Relief and New York Graffiti. We work to provide relief from suffering caused by disasters by providing services, care and assistance. We work with various disaster organizations to achieve this goal.
We are also partnered with Graffiti Church which is located on the lower east side of NYC. Annually, we collect and deliver school supplies as well as used coats for the Graffiti Kids After School program. This allows us to provide a low-cost, Christ-centered after school option for the community.
And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.

Finding balance in your everyday life is a challenge; from family commitments to personal relationships, we often find ourselves being stretched-thin, offering only our leftovers to God. Instead, let us fix our attention on God and be radically changed from the inside-out.
