Despite all this, we’ve been having a great start to fall ministry with lots of encouraging things going on- God is GOOD!
Join us this Sunday!
This Sunday Patrick is speaking and will be looking at the Parable of the Prodigal Son. As a reminder, we’ll be having communion as part of the service. Please remember to pick up your self-contained cup on the way in. Also, if you’re watching on the livestream, you’re welcome and encouraged to join in. Find elements that will be meaningful to your or if you’d like to use the same cups we are, let me know and I’ll have some delivered.
Oh, and the paving is done!
Update from the elders
Next Sunday, the 27th, will be our Vision Sunday, AGM and lunch on the lawn social gathering. Yes, it’s going to be a full day!
For those who are members of GBC and will not be attending, we’d ask that you fill in a proxy form and send it back to us either as a scan or take a picture. You can name either Dan Chapman or Patrick Thornton as proxies please.
You would then email it back to them at either:
Dan Chapman: email@example.com
Patrick Thornton: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for helping us achieve quorum for this important business meeting
Thought for the day: Staying connected as an act of discipleship
Despite everything going its important to stay connected to your church family that is appropriate to your level of physical distancing. Here are some ideas to consider: would it be safe and appropriate to call someone up you haven’t seen for a while and invite them for a walk 2 meters apart around the block? Could you meet at a local park or nature center for a conversation at either end of a picnic table? Of course there is always phone, text, and online connection. And for those of us with a social bubble, remember to take the time to encourage them in their walk with God. So lets not neglect meeting together. Our ongoing discipleship to Jesus depends on finding ways to hold onto one another emotionally, even if not physically, during this time.
In His grip,
