A cold drink is offered to the thirsty…a warm meal is set before the hungry…a home folds in an orphan and calls him ‘son’…the heart-sick woman finds hope in her desperation. These are pictures of relief…portraits of the moment when a person feels like they can face what comes next. And life can make us all feel like we are thirsty when we have had plenty to drink, hungry when our bellies are full, orphans though we have a family, and desperate in the midst of our comfort. So, if this is true, if this is a problem common to us all, what could be the solution?
Here at Meadowview we are finding that the prescription for what ails us is grace. Grace is behind that cold drink, that warm meal, that new home and new hope. Grace meets us where we are. Grace can break through a heart full of bitterness, a mind full of confusion, and a will that is beat up and worn down because life keeps telling us “not good enough”. Grace fills us, changes us, and guides us back out into that same world, not to make a difference in the world…but to make the world different.
But we have also discovered that grace isn’t something that comes from some deep well within us. Grace is poured into us by someone else. And that someone else is Jesus Christ. So we invite you to come and join us as we learn what it means to savor Christ’s grace offered to us in his death and resurrection as well as what it means to be servants of that grace here in our community and beyond.

CHILDREN IN CHURCH
As members of the covenant family of God, Meadowview welcomes and encourages children of all ages to join their families in corporate worship on the Lord’s Day. If needed, childcare is provided for children three years of age and younger. Additionally, worship training is provided during the sermon for children ages four through six if desired. These children will be dismissed from the worship center at the appropriate time. Welcoming our children in worship before the Lord each Sabbath day is one of the greatest ways of demonstrating love to our covenant children. As a church, please join us in encouraging our children in the worship service each Lord’s Day.
