Attention men! Want your life to make an impact?
A group of men from GBC is attending an upcoming Promise Keepers men’s conference.
Cost is $50 but there is financial assistance for those who are unable to cover this.
Here are some details on the event:
(verb): press closely into something
A one-day conference to help men "press in" to their relationship with God.
Every man wants to make an impact. What if the key to having an impact is to first be impacted by God? Join us at the Impactus Men’s Conference where you will learn how to press in to all God has for you, and to become the man he is calling you to be.

October ministry calendar
As mentioned before, with an increase in activities happening here at GBC we need one central source of when they are. So, we’re returning to our monthly calendar. This was a ‘casualty of Covid’ but its time to bring it back. You will find hard copies of it on the information table at the back of the auditorium or attached here. This is also a great source for prayer for the church!
Thought for the day: Growing fruit takes time
We continue to look this week at how to grow fruit in our lives, the Fruit of the Spirit. This is not just a ‘spiritual’ thing but very practical, especially in days like we’re facing. Growing in fruit means growing as a disciple of Jesus. This is not just about letting your light shine but also helps you to deal with the stress and pressure of our unsettled world. Sound good?
Here’s the thing, just like in nature, our spiritual growth takes time. Just like seeds, we must be planted in good soil, nurtured and watered. What this looks like, practically, is a lifelong work of submitting all of our life under God’s authority. We grow in knowledge of God through his Word, and grow our love of God through knowing him and obeying him. We come into spiritual community through our church and grow under the learning of other believers. We step away from old sin tendencies and through the power of Jesus’ strength, learn to walk in obedience. We die to our old selves and put on our new self in Christ Jesus. When we do that, we’ll find ourselves being transformed as the seed bursts forth into fruit. While it takes time (and you all know how patient I am!) it’s so worth it!
