Welcome to the Summer at Grace Series, “Run With the Horses.” For the next 10 weeks, we will be adventuring through the book of Jeremiah as a church and including commentary from Eugene Peterson’s book “Run with the Horses.” God is calling us as a church and as individuals to a higher level of living, not to run the footrace of men but to run with the horses. Jeremiah answered this call not with words but with his life. The question is… will you run with the horses? Join us for this 10-week series to discover what this question means.
