Pastor Steve began as Senior Pastor of Grant Community Church in September of2009.

From Pastor Steve:

In 1 Peter 2:9-10 we read: "But God Chose you to be his people. You are royal priests. You are a holy nation. You are a people who belong to God. All of this is so that you can sing His praises. He brought you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people. But now you are the people of God. Once you had not recieved mercy. But now you have received mercy" (NRV).

As a church and as individuals, God calls us to be his people, set apart for His purposes, living in response to His gift of mercy which He gave us through His Son, Jesus Christ. A large part of that response is worshiping and praising Him. We do that in various ways. We worship him on Sunday mornings when we gather corporately, but we also worship Him by living our lives for Him every day. We worship God by treating others, created in His image, as we would like to be treated--that includes our spouse, our children and our neighbors. We worship God by putting in a good day's work, or enjoying His creation as good stewards on the weekend. We really worship Him by how we live every moment of every day.
