Update Email 5.5.2017
My prayer for you this week has been that you would find greater joy in the pleasures of God than in the lesser delights of this world. Just a brief update this week.
Here is how you can pray for GBC and our work in the world
- Please continue to pray for the deacon ministry in our church. We believe that a strong deacon team will further the cause of Christ. Pray also for your brothers and sisters who God will press into this ministry. May they minister with the ability that God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ (1 Peter 4:11).
Here is what’s happening in the life of the church
- The Deacon Ministry
Attached is the deacon covenant. You should read it. Then respond by considering who you ought to encourage to pursue the office and weigh also if God is leading you to serve as a deacon.
