Welcome to Grandview!
Welcome to Grandview Baptist Church in Maryville, Tennessee. We want you to feel at home! You will be greeted by members and church staff who will extend their hands in Christian fellowship. We invite you to worship with us and experience the blessings of our Lord’s goodness and love.
Special Note from Pastor Chris
Good Evening Church Family,
As Church leadership we have continued to be in prayer and monitor the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. As well as the ever changing situation and guidelines regarding recommended group gathering size limits announced by both our President of the United States and the CDC. Having said that, as of last evening the recommendation from both of them has decreased to ten people or less for gathering groups size. Therefore, we come to you this evening with a saddened heart and share that we feel it is in the best interest of our church family and our surrounding community that we postpone all of our weekly services and ministry activities thru March 31st as of now. Certainly, we will continue to monitor the situation daily and update you accordingly as the situation changes.
As the church we are called to love our neighbor as ourselves (Mark 12.31) therefore, we must consider everyone’s well-being certainly, our community as well as in our church family. Our church has many seniors as well as those with compromised immune systems, both of which are the most at risk, and if we have services some might feel obligated to attend. Also as God’s people we must set a good example by being compliant and obedient to our government. Our May 17th Sunday School lesson will be about obeying our government, Romans 13.1 says, “Let everyone submit to the governing authorities, since there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are instituted by God.”
Having shared this news this evening, please know that we will not stop being the church, remember, this building is not the church we are. I will be making available our Sunday morning and evening messages via Facebook and ultimately our website. As well as sending out frequent prayer concern updates, etc. I hope that you will take this time of semi-isolation and draw closer to the Lord through His Word and through prayer and meditation.
Miss Geri and our church office will be open on a reduced schedule due to the lighter work load. My schedule will remain very similar except for higher phone visits verses personal visits for the time being. Know that we have several people groups in the church ready to help should you have a need. Myself and our deacon body will be reaching out to you during the days ahead making sure we all stay connected as church family.
If you need encouragement right now, turn to this passage, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Phil 4.6-7.
Through the Love of Christ,
Wednesday Evening Bible Study
The Prominence of Prophecy
Out of the 216 chapters found in the entire New Testament, did you know there are 318 references to the Second Coming of Christ? That means if you were to omit passages about prophecy, you would have to remove one out of every thirty verses in the New Testament. You would also have to skip 23 of the 27 New Testament books because that’s how many mentions it. For every prophecy about the birth of Christ, there are eight about His Second Coming.
Considering prophecy’s prominence in the Bible, how could any believer call it unimportant?
I hope you’ll come and be a part of this study on Bible Prophecy.
Through the love of Christ,
