Graystone Church is CRAZY!

  • They play loud, “secular” music in their services and use it to teach the message of Jesus.
  • They have a “come as you are” philosophy.  People literally come to church in blue jeans, shorts, T-shirts, and flip flops.
  • One of the two goals of their children’s ministry is for kids to have FUN…at church.  The other is to learn the Bible.
  • Their church bought a crime scene trailer in an impoverished Hispanic community and have turned it into a center of HOPE.  Church volunteers regularly (like every day of the week) serve and minister to the needs of another community.
  • In a 3 week time period, the families of Graystone sacrificed and gave a special offering of over $100,000, so more kids and families can be reached for Jesus Christ.  The offering wasn’t even for them.  It was for NEW PEOPLE.
  • The church has called a Holy Fast (Joel 1:14).  I mean, who fasts in 2011?
  • Church members regularly use their vacation time from work to serve on short term mission trips.
  • Families in the church are adopting orphaned children from other countries.
  • Graystone is planting a church in Vermont–the most unchurched state in America.
  • In September, the church cancelled their regular Sunday worship services and over 500 volunteers went out and served the community in the name of Jesus Christ.
  • This group of Christ-followers actually believes that God can use them to DOMINATE their community with the love of Jesus Christ.
  • They believe God can start a spiritual revival in them and through them.  Graystone Church is CRAZY!

If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit.”  2 Corinthians 5:13 NLT
