Join us on Sunday for Virtual Communion!
This Sunday, in addition to continuing my new series: Finding Joy in the Storm and looking at the book of Philippians we’ll also be having a time of communion during the service. We have the opportunity to come together and remember what Jesus did on the cross. So, get your elements together and get ready to remember the Lord in our virtual time of communion.
Here are some numbers to use if the call-in quality is poor some Sundays since sometimes the lines just get saturated. Please call one of these, using the same Meeting ID, if you find that the number you’re using provides poor audio quality.

Virtual Youth Group has moved!
As we prepare for a time when we’ll be open and able to meet again, our youth group has begun meeting again on Wednesday nights. This also allows an opportunity for those who are busy in school during the daytime to still stay connected. For much of the lockdown we’ve been meeting on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons but it was time for a shift so have returned to our pre-lockdown day.
Going forward we’re looking at virtual events and of course other opportunities to support, encourage and share God’s love through Surge until we can physically meet.
Youth@GBC continues to seek to build fellowship and share the good news of the gospel with our students as well as those in the community we know.
A thought for the day: Don't rely on yourselves or your own strength to get us through.
There's a temptation at times like this to try to handle things in our own strength or own way. Understand this idea often originates with our enemy. The Bible reminds us that the devil will disguise himself as an angel of light. Our enemy will do anything to try to lure us away from truth and away from God. He knows our weaknesses and will try to tempt us in our greatest times of struggle. He wants us to fall for his traps and he’ll take any opportunity to kick us while we’re down. Don’t let him!
We read in Matthew 4: “The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
How did Jesus fight back? With the Bible! So, don’t do things in your own strength and don’t try to go it alone. Get connected to God and the true power source, don’t allow the enemy to have a foothold especially in trying days like this.
In His grip,
