May 25, 2017 Admin GBC

Church Family,

We had a good and lively members’ meeting on Sunday evening. We, the elders, were very pleased with the robust conversation about church government. To better understand what the elders propose, please see these short but excellent articles by Jonathan Leeman and Bobby Jamieson. Start with Leeman then read Jamieson. And of course, we welcome your feedback.

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 pray for our Haiti team as members work to raise the remaining dollars needed to fund our August missions trip. This trip is an opportunity to serve the church in Haiti and an opportunity for GBC to grow spiritually.

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

  • Campout
    Don’t forget to register for the church camp out! August 11-13 @ Promontory Park in Estacada. Signups have been slowly trickling in.
