Gresham Bible Church Update
There are lots of opportunities for growth in community this fall.
Here is what's happening in the life of the church.
GBC ladies, please join Women's Ministry as we kick off our fall Bible studies! We will be doing an 11 week study of 123 John called "Abide" by Jen Wilkin. There are 6 different groups meeting at various times (including an online group that won't have a physical meeting place) so there is an option for every schedule! Contact Ang Stump for more details or refer to the email update she sent earlier this week. If you don't receive the Women's Ministry emails or need to update your contact info, please email Ang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Small Groups sign ups are this Sunday 9/9
Exploring the Great Commission Discipleship Class
If you claim the name of Jesus, you have been given a royal commission that, if accepted, will lead to a life more demanding and more rewarding than any other. In this 8-week journey we will engage such questions as:
What is the Gospel?
What is the difference between a Christian and a disciple?
What is the Kingdom of God, and why did Jesus talk so much about it?
If the Gospel is supernatural, what about the gap I see between my normal life and the Christian life portrayed in the Bible?
What are spiritual disciplines, and is it possible to see them more as a delight than a duty?
How can I become more effective in reaching lost people with the Good News of Jesus?
The class will meet weekly on Tuesday nights starting October 2nd 730-9pm. It will end with a Friday evening and Saturday day-long evangelism training workshop. You will also be given the opportunity to continue in a discipleship "micro-group," being transformed and equipped by God's Word and God's Spirit to be a reproducing disciple-maker in obedience to Jesus' Commission. See Dave Martin for more details.
Sunday, Sept 9th is our combined Fall kick off for both MS & HS ministries at the Riegelmann’s, 6:30-8:30pm.
