We are very much looking forward to our annual Christmas Brunch this coming Sunday. Many thanks to Michelle Waggoner and her team for working hard to coordinate the event. Also, our operations crew will be working overtime to pull off both our regular Sunday gathering and the meal that follows. If you think about it, thank Jason and Brett and everyone who serves to create a welcoming environment for outsiders and a worshipful environment for GBCers.
Below is a very full update on the life and ministry of GBC.

This week let’s pray for our Christmas brunch. Pray for the remaining preparations. And pray that our time together will be profitable for welcoming new people and that it would serve to further enrich existing relationships.

GBC kids have been practicing a few classic Christmas carols and their verse, Isaiah 9:6, each week in class! They will be sharing these with us on Dec. 24th during our family friendly service, as there are no classes that day. Marc will ask them to come up after communion to join him in leading the last set of worship. Lisa and Megan will have risers available and will be up front to situate them.
Our Upcoming Gathering
Lord willing, Dave Berry will lead our service, Marc will lead us in singing, and I will preach part two in our series on church membership. Please pray for our gathering and come ready to worship.
