Gresham Bible Church Update
I had a restful and invigorating time away. I was able to unplug from my normal duties and give lots of focused time and attention to my family. I am happy to be back and I'm looking forward to opening God's word with you this coming Sunday. Also, you should know that any break for me is made possible by the great staff and elders and servants of GBC. This is yet another reason to express my appreciation for their joyful service.
Here is what's happening in the life of the church.
We had a wonderful church picnic!
Mad props (90's throwback) to all who made our annual picnic a huge success. A special thanks is due to our sister Michelle Waggoner who coordinated the event.
