Rev. Deborah and Rev. Clarence Thomas Jr. heeded the call to launch a Multicultural Ministry called the House of Grace Kingdom Ministry.
The church contends that the Kingdom of God is a rich tapestry, with young and old, male and female, and representatives from every nation and people; therefore, our churches should reflect the Kingdom. The name, House of Grace Kingdom Ministry reflects a place where persons can gain citizenship into an actual community where God’s love and mercy is given freely to all.
The late Dr. Martin Luther King observed that the most segregated gatherings in America are during our Sunday worship services. His observation is still true today. While many mono-cultural churches are necessary, valuable, and pleasing to God, King’s comment is, nevertheless, to some extent a general indictment against the Christian community as a whole – since Christ, the Bible, and good theology, if properly heeded, would move many churches toward becoming more multicultural.
House of Grace offers a non-traditional approach to ministry for the twenty-first century seeker. The worship service affords the opportunity for an open forum testimony sharing; lay members participate in presenting the Word and the church maintains a village perspective of family pride and unity.
Throughout the Bible there is support of the church’s mission to become One. Psalm 133:1-3 says, “How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony. For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil that was poured over Aaron’s head, that ran down his beard and onto the border of his robe. Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon that falls on the mountains of Zion. And there the Lord has pronounced his blessing even life everlasting.”
House of Grace Kingdom Ministry currently worships at the Radisson Hotel, N88W14750 Main Street in Menomonee Falls, WI. The worship experience begins every Sunday at 10:00 a.m., offering a worship experience that is mindful of time and the need to balance one’s day following service.
