GBC's 15th Anniversary Service
Sep
22
10:45 AM10:45

GBC's 15th Anniversary Service

Join us for GBC’s 15th Anniversary celebration! We will celebrate with songs of praise and then hear Pastor Chuck tell “The Grace Story”—the miraculous story of the vision for GBC, its founding, how many have found Christ and how many have been discipled in the Faith.

The Grace Story is also about how how a three-year-old church with barely over 50 people was able to buy our building and property, how God supplied over $100,000 to remodel the building, how 10 years later we were 100% debt-free, and how God did many miracles along the way.

We will cap the day off with a Cook-out Potluck dinner on the grounds, weather permitting, or we’ll move the potluck indoors if we have inclement weather.

Celebrate with us 15 years of God’s goodness, faithfulness, His power to save, and his ability to provide!

Fall Ladies Bible Study

Tuesdays 9:30-11:30 | September 17 through November 19

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny.

But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

Childcare available. / Registration required.
Register at church at the lobby Sign-up Table or click Contact below and send us a message. Be sure to let us know many children you are bringing and specify their ages.

Men's Breakfast & Parking Lot Striping Project, Day 2

After doing Step 1 of our Parking Lot Striping Project on Friday night, on Saturday, August 24, we will meet at 8:00 AM for a hearty Men’s Breakfast with delicious food, great fellowship and a short devotional. Then we’ll go out to the parking lot for Step 2 of our striping process: measuring and laying out the parking spaces, taping the lines, and painting the stripes.

We will need all the help we can get and if you’re a man, you need a good breakfast, fellowship and spiritual food and a chance to serve your church!

To participate, it would be helpful for you to sign the sign-up sheet at church on the two Sunday’s before so we can contact you in the event that inclement weather causes a cancellation of either Step 1 or 2. Or you can click “Contact” below and let us know you are coming and provide your contact information.

Men's Parking Lot Striping Project, Day 1

Striping our church parking lot will be a two-day process. We need help on both days or either day you can help.

Step 1 will be to thoroughly pressure spray-wash the entire lot on Friday, August 23 so the striping paint will adhere properly to the pavement. We will start at 14:00 until we finish Step 1 and return on Saturday morning to finish Step 2.

To participate, it would be helpful for you to sign the sign-up sheet at church on either August 11 or 18 so we can contact you in the event that inclement weather causes a cancellation of either Step 1 or 2. Or you can click “Contact” below and let us know you are coming and provide your contact information.

We will need all the help we can get both days!

Ladies Bible Study
Mar

9:30 AM09:30

Ladies Bible Study

Tuesdays through March 19 / Session 6 this Tuesday

Interruptions. They're aggravating. Sometimes infuriating. But how we handle interruptions actually tell us more about ourselves. What do we do when God interrupts our lives? Many times, like Jonah, we run! In this DVD/discussion-driven study, Priscilla Shirer redefines interruption and shows that interruption is actually God's invitation to do something beyond our wildest dreams. When Jonah was willing to allow God to interrupt his life, the result was revival in an entire city.

Yes, the Ladies Bible Study has begun, but you can join it at anytime. Just show up!

Childcare available. / Registration required.
See Susan Sligh (the pastor’s wife) at church to let her know you are coming or click Contact below and send us a message. Be sure to let us know many children you are bringing and specify their ages.
