Join us on Sunday!
Our series on the 7 churches continues looking at the church in Smyrna, a group facing extreme persecution. How does this apply to us? Find out Sunday!
As a reminder, we’ll be participating in communion as part of the service so I’d encourage you to prepare your hearts.
Update from the Elders
As we continue to work through the areas of focus we feel God directing us to, we’ve heard a lot about small groups as we’ve launched our fall offering. It’s been great to see so many getting involved, especially those newer to the GBC family.
Another important area of focus though is outreach, or sharing your faith with the world around you. We’re planning a series of regular monthly workshops to help you work on your testimony and also share practical tips that’ll help demystify something that is often very intimidating to most (me included!). Until then, I’d like to share with you an idea. Outreach is this: “Introducing friends to Jesus through genuine relationships.”
More details to come in the weeks ahead.
Thought for the Day: Finals thoughts on fear
We’ve been looking over the last couple of weeks at some powerful and effective biblical keys to overcoming fear. We’ve been remined that God is with us so we can trust him. When troubled seek the peace of God and be filled with love. Perfect love casts out fear. Have a healthy fear of God, be strong and courageous and pray to God in your times of need.
These are the keys to unlocking a life free of the spirit of fear. By using these keys, you will open a floodgate of peace, joy, and blessings.
I hope you learned something from these posts. It’s my hope and prayer that you move forward with courage, hope, and faith. Never forget for even a second in your life that God is with you and He will protect you. Instead of fearing the bad things that might happen to you, we must fear God and do His will in our lives. And that’s how you overcome fear in your lives!
In His grip,
