Church Family,

Years ago I was invited to Cornerstone’s elder retreat. I came away with many good things, one of them being the practice of praying through the church directory. When GBC’s elders gather for a day retreat on Saturday we will spend a portion of our time praying for all of you. If you have a specific prayer request, just reply to this email and we will be certain to bring your need before the Lord.

Below is a brief update on the life and ministry of GBC.

Here is how you can pray for GBC and our work in the world

  • The elders will spend their Saturday (8am-5pm) praying and working on the vision and direction of GBC. Please pray that the Lord would bless our time. Pray for wisdom and a productive day.

    For both HS & MS, this coming week, the 10th & 11th, is our “Don’t be My Valentine” party. Come prepared for some sweet Bingo, food, and Bible. Feel free to dress up and bring a friend!

Church Family,

Many of you are already aware that a Dexter McCarty 6th grader took their own life. I have been in contact with Dexter’s principal and told him that we are praying for the family and the school community and I offered GBC’s support during this difficult time. The offer was warmly received, but at this time no service from the church is necessary.

Below is an update on the life and ministry of GBC.

Here is how you can pray for GBC and our work in the world

  • Let’s pray this week for the students and faculty of DMMS. Pray for their comfort. And pray that through this tragic loss Christians will have open doors to display the love of Jesus Christ.
