Gresham Bible Church Update
Happy New Year! I pray that this calendar year will be marked by God's faithfulness and your continued growth and joy in Jesus Christ. Charles Spurgeon's devotional from 1 Samuel 7:12 "Hitherto hath the Lord helped us" is one that I often return to at the start of a new year. Be encouraged that God is with you and will be your help in 2019.
Here is what's happening in the life and ministry of GBC
The GBC Benevolence Ministry has become aware of some significant practical needs for a family new to our church:
1. A working generator, theirs is broken. They live in an old trailer.
2. A working refrigerator, theirs is broken. They are using a cooler.
3. Housing rental for lower rent. Both parents are employed but they qualify for no assistance and have a prior eviction due to unsustainable rise in rent.
If you are in the position of helping out with any of the above needs, please contact Kathy Rodriguez.
