Church Family,

Lord willing, this coming Sunday we will conclude our 4-part series in the book of Job. In our final sermon I will preach chapters 38-42, “Job’s God.” In this section the Lord speaks to Job from the whirlwind and reveals his majesty and glory, which leads Job to humbly trust in God’s perfect wisdom. One of Dave Berry’s favorite bands wrote a beautiful and stirring song about the Lord’s response to Job. Definitely worth a listen!

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

  • Please continue to pray for the community of Sutherland Springs and for the families that have been impacted by Sunday’s shooting. Please pray for their comfort and pray for the healing of their community.

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

  • Pastoral Assistant of Administration
    The elders recently approved a new staff position; pastoral assistant of administration. We initially sought to hire a part-time staff member to fill the administrative needs for GBC. But as time went on, through observation and prayer, we have realized that creating a full-time position is the best direction for GBC. Click HERE for the description and spread the word.

  • Women’s Ministry
    Our monthly Women’s Bible study is next Tuesday 11/14 from 7-9pm in the Study (GBC office, suite 110). We’ll be wrapping up our series Becoming: A Friend Like Jesus. So please join us as we study the life of Jesus and how His example shows us how to love others well.

  • Children’s Ministries
    Attention junior high girls! We have a fun service opportunity for you this coming Thursday from 4-7pm at the Study (suite 110). Come help us assemble Christmas Crafts for Children’s Ministry! We need your help cutting, pasting, and organizing! Pizza will be served. Mamas are welcome to stay and help 🙂 Please RSVP to Megan. Thanks!

  • Dexter Serve – Chili Feed
    We are still in need of some volunteers for our Dexter Serve – Chili Feed coming up on November 20th. Some ways you can help are bringing: cookies, salad, chips, salsa, sour cream etc. There will be a sign up located on the resource table this Sunday. Or you can email Elise Peter.
