Church Family,

I have enjoyed spending time in the psalms this summer. Along with the teaching and instruction I’ve received, the psalms have been a powerful guide in prayer. If you are curious about how to incorporate the psalms into your prayers, consider this brief article by Don Whitney, “Why You Should Be Praying the Psalms.”

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

  • Let’s pray this week for our Haiti team as they make final preparations for their trip. Pray for spiritual and physical strength in these final days as they complete remaining tasks. And pray that they will be filled with joy in anticipation of serving others in the name of Jesus Christ.

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

  • Help For Haiti
    Our Haiti missions team is collecting supplies for  their upcoming trip. They are in need of first aid supplies and new school supplies. Please bring your donations to our worship service at Dexter McCarty, this coming Sunday, July 30th. Your contributions will be used to help aid the education and recovery efforts in Haiti.
  • Campout
    The church camp out is in less than 3 weeks! There’s still time to sign up for the weekend or just for the day on Saturday. Follow this LINK to register. Update: the only GBC provided meal will be dinner on Saturday evening. Please make plans for all other meals. We hope you will spend that time in fellowship with other families camped near you.
  • Student Ministries
    High Schoolers! This Sun (the 30th) is our “Putt & Pizza” night. Please RSVP to Dave.
    Cost is $16/person for the event.
    Drop off/meet at 6:30pm at Tiki Putt in Gresham (1694 NW Fairview drive)
    Pick up at 8:30 pm at Flying Pie Pizza (same parking lot as Tiki)

Our Upcoming Gathering

Lord willing, Dave Berry will lead our service, Marc will lead us in singing, we will send off our Haiti team and I will preach Psalm 90. Please pray for our gathering, read over the text and come ready to worship.
