Gresham Bible Church Update
Our Community Care Day was fantastic! Working side-by-side to beautify Dexter McCarty's campus was a delight and the event was a good opportunity to display Christ's love for our community.
Here is what's happening in the life of the church
"Don't be a Pharisee"
The Pharisees are the bad guys of the gospels, but maybe not for the reason you think. I read a superb article in Christianity Today about the real reason Jesus confronted the Pharisees. Definitely worth a read. You can find it here.
Group sign-ups will start Sunday, September 9th. If you are interested in leading a group, co-leading a group, or being a host home; please contact Anthony Perez.
Encourage a Teacher
We could use your help writing words of encouragement to Dexter McCarty teachers. Each year we give DMMS faculty a $50 gift card to Office Depot along with a note from GBC. Practically, the gift helps provide for classroom needs. Relationally, we hope that our generosity will have an eternal impact for the kingdom of God. Thank you cards will be available on the back stage this Sunday.
This coming Sunday we will be installing 5 new deacons; praise God! We will lay hands on: Bryan and Chris McClelland, Jason and Lynsey Bock, and Brett Hooper.
The backstage will NO longer be available for seating. Thank you for your cooperation.
GBC is blessed with LOTS of kids! In order to serve them well, we are in need of 3 nursery helpers to properly fill our fall schedule. This is a once per month commitment. Please contact Lisa or Megan this week if you would like to join the team!
Also, this is the final week of kids in service! We have coloring sheets and clip boards available at the back table!
September 9th, 12:30-2:30pm in the Study. Lunch is provided. Children are welcome. RSVP to Noel Rodman to attend.
Both Jr. High and High School will kick off on Sunday September 9th at the Riegelmann's. Also, in case you missed it, here is Dave's announcement about candidating for senior pastor with Flagstaff Christian Fellowship. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
