Gresham Bible Church Update
A titan and spiritual giant has gone home to be with the Lord. Albert Mohler gave a wonderful tribute this morning. Billy Graham was the most effective evangelist of our lifetime. The Lord entrusted him with a global platform and celebrity status, and Billy Graham was faithful to preach the gospel and walk humbly before his God. His life and ministry are an inspiration and a glowing example of godliness and evangelistic zeal. Today, I am saddened by the loss of Billy Graham but rejoicing over God's grace which was made to abound through his ministry.
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
Throughout Scripture the Lord holds up heroes of the faith (see Hebrews 11). Their examples give us a pattern to follow. Pray this week that the Lord would use the example of a modern hero of the faith, Billy Graham, to encourage us toward greater evangelism.
Here is what's happening in the life of the church
Mark Dever March 4th
I am very happy to announce that Dr. Mark Dever will be our speaker on Sunday, March 4th. Mark is the pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington D.C. He is the author of numerous books, the founder of the 9marks ministry, a superb bible expositor and someone who God has used to show me a more excellent way. I am looking forward to having Mark with us.
Thanks to all of you who prayed for Student Ministries this week. We are happy to report that our students read Revelation 19-22, 55 times for a total of 220 chapters! Please continue to ask the Lord to accomplish His work through His Word as the students embark on Jonah this coming week.

Attention Parents: Internet Safety Seminar
Mark your calendars for Wednesday Feb. 28th, 6:30-8:30 in the Study. We are having a seminar with John Rasmussen on digital media awareness, current trends, and safety. John is a believer and local law enforcement. He has done this seminar numerous times before. As parents, we want to stay ahead of the digital curve and help our children navigate it well. Media changes rapidly and John will help us honor the Lord, steward our kids and be wise.

Summer Camp Scholarships
Hello Families! We are happy to announce the beginning of our 2nd Camp Scholarship program! We want to provide an opportunity for more kids to be able to go to summer camp. We have two great Christian camps in our area, Eagle Fern and Trout Creek. Camp is an incredible opportunity to saturate our kids in the word for a whole week while making new friends and learning about Jesus in a new way. It costs about $250 to send one child to camp, and by completing the scholarship program the kids can earn money toward the final cost. Our hope is that more families will be able to send their kids to camp with some of the financial burden lifted. We can’t do this without you. We would ask that you think about giving generously to help fund and sustain this program. Thank you for the opportunity to serve your kids in this way!! Emily Prodan
Our Upcoming Gathering
Lord willing, Dave Berry will lead our service, Chris Gee will lead us in singing and I will preach John 5. Please pray for our gathering, read over the text
