Church Family,

You’re invited to the Haiti Team recap tonight, September 8th @ 6:30pm in the study (suite 110). This is an opportunity to hear more about the trip, to celebrate God’s goodness, and interact with team members.

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 many of the families in our church who are beginning another school year. Please pray for the success of our students and for their witness in their schools. Pray also for increased opportunities for parents to encounter unbelievers.

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

  • We Need Your Help!
    Our meals ministry is looking for new team members and our operations crew is currently short 4-5 workers. If you are able and willing to serve please contact Marissa Springer (meals) and Jason Bock (operations).

  • Special Speaker September 17th
    Drew Berryessa will join us this month to share a message about biblical sexuality and to share his personal testimony of how the Lord rescued him out of a life of brokenness and homosexuality. In conjunction with the Sunday morning message, we will host a Q & A with our speaker that afternoon from 4-6pm in the study (Suite 110). During this time Drew will answer common questions that Christians have about how to respond to people with same-sex attraction and those who struggle with gender confusion. Time permitting, he will also field questions that you have about those issues. Invite a friend to service on the 17th. I expect it to be a powerful and equipping day for GBC.

  • Children’s Ministry
    This coming Sunday, Sept. 10th is Promotion Sunday! New Kindergartners will check into Greenhouse and new 3rd graders will check into Harvest!

  • Jr. High Ministry
    Jr. High changes to Monday nights starting September 11th with a Fall Kick Off at the Riegelmann’s @ 6:30pm. Kids are encouraged to bring a friend!

  • Members’ Meeting
    Our next members’ meeting is Sunday, September 24th 4:30-6:15pm in GBC’s study (Suite 110).

  • GBC 101
    Our next GBC 101 class is on September 13th, in the study (Suite 110), 5-7pm. If you are new to GBC or if you’ve not been formally oriented, this class is for you. During this class I cover the basics about GBC and answer any questions you have about the church. Please email Noel if you plan to attend.

Our Upcoming Gathering

Lord willing, Amy Lyda will lead our service, Marc will lead us in singing and I will preach Psalm 77. Please pray for our gathering, read over the text and come ready to worship.
