SECURITY. PURPOSE. BELONGING. Security is not found in safety alone. Purpose happens when we take action. Belonging is what we were created to enjoy. But the hostile and broken places that surround us foster fear, hopelessness and rejection. For those who are struggling to inhabit all the good places He is preparing, God has a message: "Join me!"
Come along as we glean timeless wisdom from the books of Nehemiah and Malachi that speak to our own desires to live confidently, be part of something bigger than ourselves and know that we belong. They are ancient books with a message for your life today from an eternal God who never changes.
Everyone has a story. And every story is different. But when God is at the heart of your story everything changes! With God, fearful hearts turn fearless, prideful hearts turn humble, and reluctant hearts turn willing and even courageous. Join the Women of Grace on March 29-30th, for our Women’s Retreat, as we explore the way God’s love sets our Hearts on Fire and redeems every story.
Registration includes your accommodations, 2 Saturday meals, ropes course, and on-site activities.
While the official programming of the retreat ends at 5pm Saturday, you may opt for a second night at Camp Cho-Yeh for an additional cost. This will include a meal and informal activities and fellowship.
Scholarships are available! Contact Kim Wier for details. (Scholarships do not apply to students as discounted Student Rate is already applied.)

On the last Sunday of every month our 9:15am and 10:45am services are "Family Services". Children in kindergarten through fifth grade attend a worship service with their family, and it is during this service that we also observe the Lord’s Supper. Families that remain on campus for both services will have the option to bring their K-5th children to the Discover Building during one of those services. If you have any questions regarding how this Sunday will look for your family, please contact Jon Hayes.
Maundy Thursday was the night that Jesus invested the Passover meal with new meaning in light of His death the following day. The goal of our Maundy Thursday service is to enter into the story of Jesus on the darkest night of His life. We want to appreciate that while our redemption is free for us, by God’s grace, it was purchased at an infinite cost to the Triune God. The tone for the night overall is meant to be somber and reflective, and with our minds on the enormity of Jesus's sacrifice, this service will prepare us for a fuller celebration on Easter morning. Childcare will be available for Pre-K children upon registration.
If are seeking wisdom for how to navigate the pressures and temptations of an increasingly digital society, join our Youth Pastor, Bobby, for a 4-week seminar entitled "Parents and Technology." This seminar is open to parents, grandparents, and anybody else who finds themselves shepherding others through these issues. Please be sure to register to help us plan for resources.
Take the next step with GBC by attending our New Member Workshop and Lunch. It's a great opportunity to sit down with our staff and elders and better understand our story, philosophy of ministry, beliefs, and commitments. Childcare is available by request, and we will conclude the morning with a lunch together. Please register online or by calling the church office.
