Church Family,

Our work day for Dexter McCarty is just around the corner (8/26 8-10am). Bring your wheelbarrows, shovels, trimmers, and blowers! Beyond beautifying the campus, our work day is also a way of tangibly blessing the city in Jesus’ name. Please email Noel to sign up!! There will also be a sign up sheet on the resource table this coming Sunday. Below are some pictures from previous years.

    

    

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 that God would continue to open doors for evangelism in our community. Pray for evangelistic opportunities in existing relationships and for the formation of new relationships that would yield an evangelistic harvest. Pray also for boldness to tell the good news about Jesus.

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

  • Haiti Update
    Our GBC short term missions team has returned from Haiti safely and wanted to thank everyone for their prayers and support while away.  They completed physical projects involving hauling buckets of concrete at an orphanage and a school, as well as providing a short VBS to three different groups of kids throughout the week.
  • Women’s Ministry
    Women’s prayer meeting at Cristy Slawson’s home, Wednesday August 23rd at 7:20pm.
    Missed Women’s Ministry’s series on spiritual gifts? Or want a refresher on what using your gifts should look like in the church? Contact Ang Stump to get details on taking (or retaking) a spiritual gifts test and join us after church on Sunday August 27th at 12:30 in suite 110 to discuss how to use these gifts to benefit the body of Christ at GBC. Lunch will be provided, so please RSVP!
