Gresham Bible Church Update
On Sunday, I presented Preston Knifong to you as an elder candidate for GBC. Preston has been in the elder process for 1 year. During that time Anthony Perez, Thomas Slawson and myself have observed his godly character and his zeal for serving the church. We invite the congregation to be a part of the process of recognizing church elders. Please follow this link to Preston's elder recognition form. There you can learn a bit more about Preston and affirm the biblical traits that mark him as a man qualified to serve as your elder. You can mail that form to the church office or scan and email that form to me. We will also have them available on the resource table on Sunday.
Here is what's happening in the life of the church
The Lord blessed Warren and Becca Kinser with a beautiful baby boy, Noah John.
God also gave the Slawson's a beautiful baby boy, Stephen Wesley Duncan.
Save the Date – Directory photos on September 30th
The church directory is a tool for communication and a guide for prayer. Photographers will be taking pictures before and after service on September 30th. This will also be a time to update any of your family contact information. We will be doing follow up pictures on October 7th. Please contact Noel Rodman with any questions.
Dave Berry update
Our brother Dave Berry has officially received and accepted a call from Flagstaff Christian Fellowship to serve as their next senior pastor! We are thrilled for the Berry's and FCF. Dave's last day as an employee of GBC will be Monday, October 1st. We have scheduled a farewell celebration as a part of our 9/23 Sunday morning worship service.
