Thank you
for your online visit to
Grafton Baptist Church!
 
Here at Grafton Baptist Church, our mission is to go and reach all people and to personally care for them by leading them into healthy growing relationships with God and others.
 
Our desire is to reach those not attending church anywhere and to welcome them into our church family.

We want to help the hurting to heal, the lonely to find friendship, and those who do not know the love of Jesus to meet Him in an intimate and personal way.
 
We celebrate with Praise & Worship
at 10:45am every Sunday
in the Community Life Center.

PASSION:
One Week, One Mission, One Victory

We will spend the Sundays leading up to Easter examining the final week of Jesus’ life on earth. We are calling this sermon series “Passion.” Pascho” is the Greek word for passion, and it means “to suffer.” Jesus’ final week is sometimes referred to as “passion week” because it covers the events that culminated in His suffering and death on the cross. For the next six Sundays we will look at each day (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday...) leading to the cross. If you don't have a church home or you have questions on why Jesus did what he did on the cross ....JOIN US on Sundays at 10:45am!

March 16th - Looking at Palm Sunday. Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, with the people hailing Him as king, would end with His death on a cross.
March 23rd - Walk with Jesus on the Monday before His crucifixion. We will see a Savior who is righteously indignant when anything stood in the way of His people worshiping God.
March 30th - Listen as Jesus once again returns to the temple in Jerusalem on Tuesday, and spends the day there teaching His followers about faith, prayer, and forgiveness.
April 6th - In contrast to the silence on Wednesday, much is recorded about Jesus' activities on Thursday, a day of preparation that included Judas' betrayal and Jesus' time of prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane. It was also on Thursday that Jesus instituted the Lord's Supper, which will forever remind us of His passion for us.
April 13th - It was on Friday that Jesus was taken before the religious leaders on trumped up charges; it was on Friday that the religious leaders handed Him over to the Romans; and it was on Friday that He was scourged, mocked, and crucified. The same people who hailed Him as King in Palm Sunday, called for His death just five days later. Let's walk together through our Lord's day of suffering.
April 20th - On Easter Sunday morning, we'll look at the events of the final day of Passion Week. The very first Easter Sunday is the day that dramatically changed history. It is the very foundation of our faith. It is the day of our Lord's resurrection. Yes, Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday. But He has risen. And on this Sunday, we will celebrate the empty tomb.
