Small Groups for Philippians Series Starting May 10th to June 28th!
Attention all those interested in participating in small groups for 8 weeks, please contact Patrick Thornton at Thornton.firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-835-1005
As I speak on the letter to the Philippians with the theme of "Finding Joy in the Storm" GBC is continuing with small group ministry for the next 8 weeks, using the Discovery Bible Study method to look at Paul’s letter to the Philippians. We believe that through the Discovery Bible Study method we will
· be led to a deeper relationship with, and obedience to, Jesus Christ; and
· be equipped to lead friends – those exploring the Christian faith and those already following Christ – into a deeper relationship of love with God and others
To know more and participate in an introductory session through Zoom, please contact Patrick Thornton at Thornton.email@example.com or 519-835-1005

Sunday Jacob will be continuing on from where Patrick and I left off as we finish interacting with 100 Days of Prayer
Some have been connecting over the phone and have noted that the call-in quality was poor some Sundays, so a few more numbers have been made available – sometimes the lines just get saturated. So, here are some alternative numbers to call in (using the same Meeting ID as the other number) if you find that the number you’re using provides poor audio quality.

A thought for the day: Facing Fears
To find peace in trying times we have to face our fears. Fears can be healthy or exaggerated—and sometimes paralyzing. It takes wisdom to admit that there are dangers around us that need to be properly, and fearfully, respected, and it takes wisdom to see through the exaggerations and fear-mongering of those who use the pains of others for their benefit.
Let’s be honest, we will not have all the answers we could hope for, nor will we fully anticipate all that’s going to happen in the coming days. That can increase our fear. Yet despite that, all of us must accept the responsibilities we have in our given spheres of influence where we are called upon to serve and to lead. We must seek wisdom and make the very best decisions we can as we all seek to act generously and selflessly, in ways consistent with all that we believe as followers of Jesus.
God tells us in Isaiah 41- “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” So, face your fears and let your light shine!
In His grip,
