Gresham Bible Church Update
I really missed being with you all on Sunday. Thank you for your prayers. Like many of you, I am very grateful for the elders of GBC. They not only serve you faithfully, but they have been a pillar of support for me and my family. What you saw on Sunday during the morning gathering, and the afternoon member meeting, is what I get to have a front row seat to week in and week out. Also, props to Mike Dahl for doing an incredible job moderating the panel.
Here is what's happening in the life and ministry of GBC

Follow-up on Marriage
By God's grace we have a number of strong healthy marriages in our church. The Lord has given us lots of good examples to follow. If you are wondering who those people are, I would happy to get you paired up. Also, I wanted to remind you that GBC offers a marriage enrichment program. Sometimes Christian marriages need a tune-up. If you think your marriage would benefit from a 4-6 week individualized program, just reply to this email and we will get you set up.
