LAST CALL: APPROVAL TO REPLACE ROOF
As I mentioned last week, we’re getting ready to replace our roof this spring. I’m happy to share we have sufficient funds now within the building fund to allow the project to proceed! Thanks so much for those who supported this project. GBC's constitution requires that a special meeting of members be held to approve any capital expenditure that exceeds 10% of the prior year's offerings. A special meeting is being convened to approve this expenditure on February 8 in order to move this project along. Rather than call the congregation together for this very straightforward issue, we are requesting that members appoint Dan Chapman, member of the Finance Committee, as their proxy to cast their vote to approve this matter. If you are a GBC member and agree to cast your vote by proxy, and haven’t responded to me yet, would you kindly respond to this email and simply state "I appoint Dan Chapman as my proxy with respect to the roof replacement project". If you have any questions about the project or this request, please let me know and we'd be happy to discuss this with you.
Join Jacob and Karen Ginter for a time of prayer on Wednesday afternoons at 3pm here at GBC in the Side Auditorium.

Thought for the day: God chose us before we chose him.
So why else should we be hopeful in 2021? How about this? Even with everything going on and even with all the mistakes we sometimes make, God chose us before we chose him. AND he even knew how we’d turn out!
Peter tells us, “You were chosen according to the purpose of God the Father and were made a holy people by his Spirit, to obey Jesus Christ and be purified by his blood.”. Long before you chose God, he chose you. Your salvation was his idea. God took the initiative. And you were chosen for his purpose—to make you holy and get you ready for heaven and what you’d do in his name until that time comes.
We all know what it’s like to feel chosen—whether you’re chosen for a team, a job, or as a spouse. But the highest honor you will ever receive is this: God has chosen you to spend eternity with him. That’s a big deal and that gives us hope on a snowy, locked-down, day!
In His grip,
