As a family of God’s people, the church is where the older generation comes alongside the younger to show hospitality and encourage in the faith. Adopt a Jack provides a connection between the adults and families of Grace Bible Church and SFA students. At least three times a semester, six times a year, the adult/family treats the student(s) to a meal and engages in intentional conversation. Representing God’s love to a broken world begins in the relationships we have within the church! To "adopt" a Jack, e-mail Roman.
Men's Huddle Groups have kicked off again! If you are not currently connected to a Huddle Group, please e-mail Zach Martin. These are groups of men 18+ that meet weekly for 6 weeks to enjoy an hour of brotherhood. Groups will meet whenever, wherever your group is most comfortable.
GBC Women’s Bible Study - Unfinished Business: A study of Acts begins in September with a self-guided audio preview. In person groups will begin Oct 6 & 7, with Tuesday pm or Wed am options. (Childcare is available.) There will also be a virtual group available to meet Tuesday pm.
When Jesus departed from earth, He left unfinished business. The book of Acts is the story of the Holy Spirit, working through Jesus’ friends, to continue the work He began. As the story unfolds, the church is born, the gospel spreads and still, we discover there is still unfinished business. In every age, the Holy Spirit invites Jesus’ friends to join Him in the kingdom work of spreading the Gospel. Through a close study of Acts, we discover how to partner with the Holy Spirit, how to share the true gospel, overcome obstacles, abide in joy – in short, how to join in the great unfinished business Jesus left for us to do.
Men, join us for our monthly Men's Lunches on the first Tuesday of each month at noon in Henderson Hall. Bring your lunch, and we will provide drinks. Jack Shirley will give a charge to live faithfully.
Celebrate GBC’s 80th anniversary with us! Beginning at 9:30am, we will be playing a celebration video in the Sanctuary and will have a historical walkthrough to browse in the Sanctuary foyer, along with coffee and hot chocolate. At 10am, an outdoor worship service will begin in the grassy area next to the Discover Building. This will be followed by an outdoor brunch. We will have chairs set up, but if you would prefer to distance yourself, please bring a camp chair! We are looking forward to celebrating God's goodness to GBC.
This is a Family Service, meaning K-5th will worship with their families, but Pre-K care will be available. Additionally, we would love help with setting up and greeting for this service! Contact Katy Mitchell if you would like to help set up chairs at 8am and contact Cynthia Knowles if you would like to help greet and provide hospitality on this day.
Come, be equipped as we walk through a simple, 4-part study, training you to be able to go through it later with a friend or family member. You will walk away with a clearer picture of the hope that the gospel brings and a renewed desire and confidence to take that message to a dying world.
We will meet Friday, November 13th (6-8:30pm) and Saturday, November 14th (9am-12pm). Childcare will be available with registration. The cost is $10 with scholarships available; youth will be free.
If you are interested in pursuing membership, join our next New Member Workshop on November 15th from 2-4:30pm in Henderson Hall. This is a great opportunity to hear more about GBC -- our philosophy of ministry, our beliefs, our history, and more. Additionally, you will get to know our leadership better and be able to fellowship with others in our church. Childcare is available, and we ask that you sign up to let us know you're coming.
