Church Family,

A couple of weeks ago we announced our plan to launch a new Sunday School class for 2nd and 3rd grade students and the need for additional teachers and helpers to fill out the schedule. By God’s grace you responded to our call and we will be launching our new class “Orchard” on Sunday, November 5th. Thank you so much for your eagerness and willingness to serve the body! Beginning in November this will be our new Sunday school class breakdown:

  • Nursery (0-2)
  • Seeds (2s and 3s)
  • Sprouts (preschool and pre-k)
  • Greenhouse (K and 1st grade)
  • Orchard (2nd and 3rd grade)
  • Harvest (4th and 5th grade)

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

  • We desire to be an effective evangelistic witness of Jesus Christ in our community. Let’s pray this week for spiritually significant encounters with unbelievers. We know that God is drawing sinners to salvation. What a joy it is to be a part of His saving plan.
