Gresham Bible Church Update
This coming Sunday will be a bittersweet day of excitement and loss. So many of you have expressed your joy about sending us out and at the same time I know that this is a difficult transition for most. I read an article recently titled 10 Ways to Navigate Pastoral Transition that I think you will find helpful. Kelsey and I are eager to go but very sad to leave. God has done so much good work in our lives through GBC; you all will be missed greatly.
Here is what's happening in the life and ministry of GBC
We would love to see you all this coming Sunday for our send-off/farewell service. This will be a very special day, with a lunch reception directly following the service. Additionally, we will receive an offering to help with the start-up costs for the new church plant (please mark "church plant" in the memo line).
