Gresham Bible Church Update

October 3, 2018 admin

I pray that this email finds you rejoicing in the hope of your calling. Every fall church life is in full swing. This year is no different. There are lots of opportunities to grow in Christ and serve our community.

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

  • Directory Photos Take Two
    Once again 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).

  • Compassion Clinic
    We are pumped to begin partnering with Compassion Connection. (check out their website here) We are gearing up for a December pop-up clinic in Gresham. Presently, we are looking for someone to run point for this awesome community service opportunity. Please email Noel to volunteer and for more details.

  • Parent-Child Dedication
    Please email Noel if you would like to participate in our next child dedication.

  • Children's Ministry October Verse Card
    Isaiah 53:4-6

  • Baptism Class
    We will be having our next baptism class on October 14th directly following our service in the Orchard room (about 30 minutes). This class is for people ready to go public with their faith and for folks interested in learning more about baptism.

  • Women's Ministry Gatherings
    Our big push this fall is getting everyone into a Bible study, but we also want to have time to meet together. Please mark your calendars for the following dates where we'll enjoy fellowship and encouragement from other women at GBC with a time of worship and testimonies:

    Tuesday October 16th: 7-9pm in the Study (GBC office, suite 110) 
    Saturday December 1: 6:30pm at Courtney Willard's house (Christmas party, details to come)
