The importance of coming together as a church on Sunday
Here’s a short video that encouraged Pastor Dan and he wanted to share with all of you that looks at the importance of gathering on Sundays.
Join us for our next Sunday evening potluck and communion time
"Do this in remembrance of Me". These of the words Jesus spoke to his followers and call us to do the same through communion. Join with members of the GBC family for our next evening communion service on Sunday, November 5 as we enjoy a potluck meal together at 6pm followed by a time of communion - including scripture, sharing, prayer, singing and the breaking of bread starting at 7pm. Sign up in the foyer so that we know what you will be bringing to the meal.
Thought for the day: Closing thoughts on fruit
As mentioned above, the last couple of weeks we’ve been looking at the fruit of the Spirit, how to get it and what it looks like. Let’s look at the text, in full, one last time. Paul writes in Galatians 5: “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”
We often will read (or maybe even memorize) the components of the fruit but we don’t often look at the impact of it which we see in the verses that follow. I could write probably a bunch of blogs on this but instead I’m going to encourage you to read it reflectively and talk to God about how this applies to your life. May we all seek to live in this manner and let our lights shine!
In His grip,
