Church Family,

It’s Daylight Savings this coming Sunday. Remember to set your clocks back one hour before bed on Saturday.

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

  • Let’s pray this week for the launch of our new Orchard class. Offer thanksgivings to the Lord for providing GBC with additional classroom space and for the addition of new teachers and helpers. Also, pray for the success of our new class structure.

Here is what’s happening in the life of the church

  • Student Ministries
    The Lord continues to bless our student ministries program. With growth comes the increasing need for more workers. We are looking for new leaders for both High School Ministry on Sunday nights and Jr. High Ministry on Monday nights; especially women. Email Dave if you are interested.

  • Children’s Ministries
    Our new class Orchard for 2nd and 3rd graders begins this coming Sunday! Orchard will meet in the old Harvest room. Harvest (4th and 5th graders) and will meet directly across the hall. We will have signs posted on the doors to help you out! Also, our November Verse Card is ready to go.

  • Dexter Serve – Chili Feed
    GBC will be providing a meal for the Dexter McCarty teachers during their parent/teacher conferences on November 20th. Teachers will be in conferences with parents from 8am-8pm with a dinner break from 4-5pm.  We need volunteers to bring food (chili, cornbread, salad, corn chips, desserts, drinks) and dishes/utensils. We also need 1 or 2 people to help set up/tear down.  Set up will start at 2:30pm and food needs to arrive by 3:30pm. Contact Elise Peter for more information at 503-799-7644 or elisempeter@gmail.com. A Sign-up sheet will be located on the resource table on Sunday mornings for the next several weeks.

  • GBC 101 – Sunday, November 12th 4-6pm in The Study
    Our next GBC 101 is just around the corner. If you are new to GBC, this class is for you. Bring your questions and come to learn about the life and ministry of the church. Please reply to this email if you are planning to attend.

  • Parent-Child Dedication
    We are working to coordinate our next baby dedication. If you would like to participate, please email Noel.

  • Save the date! Day of Fasting – November 29th.

Our Upcoming Gathering

Lord willing, Dave Berry will lead our service, Marc will lead us in singing and I will preach Job chapters 4-37. Please pray for our gathering, read the passage and come ready to worship.
