This Sunday I will be preaching on Christ as the Head of the Church. This has special meaning for me as this is the first time I have preached on this subject since the draconian COVID-19 mandates rained down on us last year from the CDC and the local County Health Departments. We chose to ignore all the mandates and we refused to ever close our church. In hindsight, we are grateful to discover this was the correct choice. 

Ephesians 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body.

God dramatically blessed our decision to stand faithful to His commands to meet in person regularly despite the government's attempt to infringe on Christ's authority. Thank you, God, for the unprecedented growth we have seen in our body in 2021. Below is the link to the statement from Grace Community Church regarding Christ's absolute authority over His Church.
