Church Family,

As promised, here are the two Children’s Ministries videos from our 10 year anniversary service. Enjoy! Sign video and Vintage clips.

Here is how you can pray for GBC and our work in the world

  • We beseech your prayers for our Saturday elders’ retreat. We will be covering a wide range of topics (everything from evaluating processes to how to better support workers and leaders in our church). Pray for wisdom and clear discernment from the Lord.

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

  • Opportunity to serve Dexter McCarty Teachers:

Dear GBC, We need your help!  Every year we have the opportunity to bless the Teachers at Dexter McCarty with a meal during Teacher Appreciation Week.  This year it is scheduled for Monday May 8. We are hoping to provide soup, salad, bread and cookies. Please bring your soup in a crock-pot so we can keep it warm. Don’t have time to make a soup or cookies the day of?  Consider dropping off some disposable tableware or a bagged salad at my house the night before. We will besetting up at 10:30am and Teachers will arrive for their lunch break at 11:30.  It will be set up buffet style, so no need for servers this year. Clean-up will happen around 2pm. Crock-pots can be picked up at Elise Peter’s house any time after 2:30pm. Thanks for being willing to serve the teachers at Dexter in this special way. Email Elise Peter or call 503-799-7644

  • Elders’ Retreat Prayer Requests

The elders will be meeting for the day on Saturday to plan, brainstorm, fellowship and pray. One of our joyful tasks for the day is praying through our church directory. If you have a specific need that we can pray for, simply respond to this email and make your requests known. It is our pleasure to pray for you.

  • Children’s Ministry opportunity:

Children’s Ministry is in need of TWO new nursery workers to serve once a month on our new schedule. Come, join the team! Contact Lisa Perez or Megan Wood.
