Based in St. Cloud, Minnesota, Growing in Grace is a blog by Pastor Matthew Molesky. His posts explore the Bible, theology, ecclesiology, culture, books, family, and life.



I serve (by the mercy of God) as the pastor for an amazing church family. Once every five years, they grant a three month sabbatical. For this first one of my pastorate, the elders felt it would be best to split it over two years: six weeks last year, and six weeks this year. That six weeks started on Monday.

sab·bat·i·cal. (noun) a period of leave granted for study or travel.

My goals are simple: family, rest, play, read, and write. And, spend a great deal of time in prayer and the Bible.

I'd love your prayers for us as we break from the routine and restore, to return prepared for a new season of ministry.

Grace and Peace,


He Is Our Shepherd, Carrying Us Forever
