Gresham Bible Church Update
I am very much looking forward to our member meeting this coming Sunday. We have a very full agenda. The elders are happy to speak with you before or after the member meeting about any of the agenda items, but we will not be able to allow space for questions during the meeting. Here is the agenda rundown:
- Why member meetings matter
- Ministry Updates (Women's Ministry and Children's Ministry)
- Introduce 20 new members
- 3rd quarter financial report
- GBC calendar and scheduling
- Deacon ministry update
- Why and how we practice church discipline
- Pastoral Assistant search update
- 2018-19 GBC directory
- Worship and Creed
Here is what's happening in the life and ministry of GBC
I want to commend a superb article by Russell Moore that was written in response to the deadliest attack on Jewish people in American history, If You Hate Jews, You Hate Jesus. Moore does a great job of showing how the Jewish heritage of Jesus is an important part of our redemption story.
A few GBC families have spent the past few years serving Chinese pilot students in Troutdale. China is becoming increasingly hostile toward the gospel so it is a great opportunity to have them here in America for 1-2 years of training. There are a lot of students who aren't matched up with a volunteer family and we'd love to get those young men into Christian homes to experience Thanksgiving in a loving and hospitable environment. If anyone is able to welcome a few of these students to their holiday gathering, please contact Kerry and Josie Sinclair at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-251-4779.
Middle school group is taking the next 2 Mondays off. It will resume Nov 26th. The time will also be changing to 6:30-8pm for the remainder of the school year.
