Sola Gratia (POHFW)

Preparing our Hearts to Worship


In an effort to help you prepare for the December 4th, 2016, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on the phrase ‘by grace alone’, I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “Sola Gratia”. The main Scripture for the day is Romans 11:1-6. The other passages are either referenced in the message or provide additional insight for reflection.
