Church Family,

Years ago I was invited to Cornerstone’s elder retreat. I came away with many good things, one of them being the practice of praying through the church directory. When GBC’s elders gather for a day retreat on Saturday we will spend a portion of our time praying for all of you. If you have a specific prayer request, just reply to this email and we will be certain to bring your need before the Lord.

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

  • The elders will spend their Saturday (8am-5pm) praying and working on the vision and direction of GBC. Please pray that the Lord would bless our time. Pray for wisdom and a productive day.

    For both HS & MS, this coming week, the 10th & 11th, is our “Don’t be My Valentine” party. Come prepared for some sweet Bingo, food, and Bible. Feel free to dress up and bring a friend!
