With our ministry launch and ‘lunch on the lawn’ Sunday it would be a great time to come to church if you’ve not been out for a while. While we love having the livestream option it doesn’t replace being together in person. We miss you!
Ministry Kick-Off and “Lunch on the Lawn”
As mentioned previously, this Sunday will be our official launch of fall ministries. We’re going to have several ministry updates and what’s happening plus launching our new teaching series for the fall.
In addition, we’ll be having “lunch on the lawn” which is an opportunity to hang out with your church family after the service. Bring a picnic lunch or go grab something to eat and come back, as we reconnect. We’ll be providing drinks so no need to worry about that.
Hope you’ll come out and celebrate what God is doing here at GBC!
Join us on Sunday in-person or on our livestream as we look at a church in motion
This Sunday at 11am we begin our new series for the fall: “A church in motion”: the book of Acts. I’ll be looking at the time right before the formation of the church and why Jesus implemented this organizational structure as God’s visible representation on earth. Why did he do it and what does it mean for us today?
We’ll find out Sunday!
Remember, you can join us as we gather in-person or you can connect through our website www.guelphbiblechapel.ca our YouTube channel as well as Facebook LIVE.
Thought for the day: Be filled with love
On Tuesday I talked a bit about fear. Here’s another way of looking at this issue. God is love and those who follow God must also be filled with love. If we want to get rid of fear, we must replace it with something. If we keep our minds empty, fear can easily return. That’s why we read in I John 4:18: “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” Now, here’s one of the most important keys to getting rid of fear: We must be filled with love. We can cast out fear with love.
Love is an affection and emotion that does NOT produce any fear. In fact, if we truly love God, we should not fear anything. We don’t need to fear death because after death, if we are secure with God, we can be confident that we will meet our Creator during our next waking moment. As long as we have love in our hearts and lives, we can expect fear to never bother us. The moment that our love wavers, that’s the same moment that fear starts to creep in again.
When love prevails, fear stops from existing.
When love overcomes, fear is suppressed.
And when love reigns, fear is banished.
Sounds pretty good, huh? Let’s be filled with love!
In His grip,
