Gresham Bible Church Update

September 27, 2018 admin

We will be taking directory photos this coming Sunday! Pictures will be taken in Dexter's gym before service (930-1030am) and after service (12-1pm). Please plan on getting your families picture taken for our GBC Directory. The church directory is an important tool for community life. We use our directory as a guide for prayer and it also serves to help you become familiar with your fellow GBC'ers.

Here is what's happening in the life of the church

  • An effort to foster community
    Beginning this coming Sunday we are going to delay tear-down by 5 minutes to allow for lingering after the benediction. Once you're dismissed, a timer will begin on the screen with slides running in the background. When time has run out and the music starts, the carts will appear and we will ask for your help putting away the chairs. Your assistance with the chairs is a huge help to the operations team. We hope that over time this small change will have a big impact in the community life of the church. The time could be used for: further reflection on the service, prayer, and conversation.

  • Children's Ministry
    We are having a Jr. Helper meeting 9-10am on Sunday, Sept. 30th. If you are a student and helping in Children’s Ministry, please attend this meeting! We’ll be providing valuable training for some specific ways to help in class. There will be snacks!
