John Almquist – Rooted Series Part 3: Grounded in Grace (Ephesians 2:1-10)
Today was week three of a nine week study of the Core Values of The Springs Community Church. Everything we do at The Springs is rooted in these values. Grounded in Grace – We acknowledge our complete dependence on the goodness and grace of God. We have benefited from the kind intention of His will; therefore, we eagerly extend it to others.
Grace is for the dead. (v 1-3)
Grace is for the loved. (v 4-5)
Grace is for the changed. (v 6-7)
Grace is for the saved. (v 8-9)
Grace is for the committed. (v 10)
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this not your own doing ; it is the gift of God, not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Be Gounded in Grace…it is the primary motivation for lasting transformation.

Special Thanks to Salvation Army volunteers:
Last Sunday night over a dozen Springs folks gathered to study our Core Values and then head to The Salvation Army to serve dinner. What a great day of full devotion! Thanks so much to Andy Easley, Nancy Nelson, and many students from Team D!
Because of the relationship we’ve developed with the Salvation Army through The Big Serve, we learned about a need they had and were so excited to help them meet it by delivering a wonderful ball cart filled with a variety of different kinds of balls. When delivered the quote was, “the kids eyes were like SAUCERS when they saw all the balls!”. Thanks to all who led, donated, and delivered on the need!

One of the many things we consistently challenge you with is to be available for how God might want to use you. We acknowledge regularly the fact that God is constantly doing amazing things in this world we live in, and specifically in New Braunfels. With that in mind, we pray that as you surrender to join Him with what He’s doing, that you might consider joining in what He’s doing through The Springs.
We’re also seeking:
- Bible Study leads (curriculum provided)
- Community Group leaders
- Sunday morning team leaders
- Launch Group hosts (4 week commitment)
- Sunday set-up and tear down (rotating commitment)
- Sunday media/worship: Musicians, sound board (easy to learn), media (easy to learn)
We take serious the call to belong and be a functional, contributing part to the body of the local church. We, the individual members of God’s church, are called to make disciples. Often that is associated with “mission trips” or evangelism. But in reality, when it comes to those who are following us, watching us, and being influenced by us, we are “making disciples” constantly. No place is this more true than with our children. Not just those of our immediate family, but all of the children of our community. Because of that, we aren’t looking for “childcare workers”, but members of a body that want to engage in being a part of the discipleship process of our children here with the community that is the Springs.
