Update Email 9.19.2017
Sometime ago a friend recommended that I watch “Woodlawn.” The film is a faith-based drama inspired by true events at a Birmingham, Alabama, high school in 1973. The movie contains a strong message about the power of the gospel to transform a divided community. Highly recommended.
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 Luke 10:2, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Pray that God will pour out his Spirit, stir up gifts, and spark imaginations so that we will reap the harvest he has prepared.
Here is what’s happening in the life of the church
- Student Ministries
All Jr. High/High School students and their families are invited to join us at Liepold Farms on Sunday, October 8th at 2pm. This will be an informal event to spend some fun time together as a church community. You may leave at your own leisure. High School will not meet that evening, but will resume October 15th.
- Church Directory Update
We’re in the process of updating the church directory. Please visit THIS page to update your information. The church directory helps foster connection, it is a tool for communication, and a guide for prayer.
