There’s some people you need to meet. They are the family that leads our church where each Sunday and all throughout the week, we learn how to take our next step toward Christ. On Sunday our church, Grace, celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary. It is amazing to see how God has blessed and led this church all the way. This family has sacrificed so much to help others get to know the absolute blessing of Christ in their lives. We are forever thankful for their mission and the impact it has had in our own personal lives.
We are Christians. And we are passionate about our faith. Does that mean we are perfect or won’t make horrendous mistakes or even bad choices? Nope – not even close. Being Christian doesn’t make us good people (or even less bad), it just means that that we have accepted the gift of salvation. In simple terms, it means that we believe that Jesus is the Son of God and he has given us the gift of salvation. Because of what Christ did on our behalf, we’re able to have an eternal relationship with God.
As with any gift, it’s what you do with it that matters. Our salvation is not like a subscription service that has to be maintained with self-effort and self-improvement (always working to make up for our mess ups, to make sure God happy with us, or to check off our Christian Todo list.) Instead, we are continually learning how we can effectively use the gifts and talents that God has given us to impact the world around us. It’s out of the joy we have for God and our gifts that we make daily choices to move in the direction towards Christ and becoming more like Him. We are so grateful that our lives and our business enable us to bless so many with what we do.
We have been so blessed to be a part of church that is so centered on Christ and the Gospel. Over the past few months we have had the opportunity to photograph not only this wonderful family, but many events and gatherings within this church family. We have been there for baptisms, group gatherings, service projects and many other things. We also helped provide imagery for the most recent issue of Grace Magazine. If you are not a really religious person, but curios about who Jesus is, then Grace would be a great place to start. And if you are a seasoned pro and have an intimate relationship with your creator, Grace is a great place to keep growing. And no, the roof won’t fall in on you because of any of those bad things in your past. We meet at Edgewater High School and it’s new and very structurally sound
So, meet the Adkins and take a look at a little of what Grace looks like.
