OASIS Sponsorship Opportunity
Each year, GBC has the privilege of sponsoring children from our local community to attend our week-long OASIS day camp at the Guelph Bible Conference Centre. We have the opportunity to serve these children as they learn about God's love for them. This year, we will be sponsoring 25 children to attend the camp, including a number of children from families connected to Michael House. This is an amazing 'God sighting' as we have the opportunity to deepen our partnership with Michael House. The total cost of sponsorships will be approximately $6,000, with each sponsorship costing $212. To participate, please mark your donation as "OASIS Sponsorship Fund" so that it may be directed for this purpose.
For further information please contact Donna Chapman.

Thought for the Day: The Power of the Resurrection: “I know that my Redeemer lives”
Tuesday I looked at the power of the resurrection through the lens of Job’s declaration that he knew his Redeemer lives. Okay, so now how does this apply to us?
As with Job, in spite of every argument to the contrary from his friends, we too may know that the Redeemer lives. Furthermore, to live successful Christian lives we must know that not just in our heads but in our hearts as well.
God’s plan for the believer is that by the testimony of the Holy Spirit and by opening one’s eyes to see the many evidences of God’s power and authority in the world of nature and history, we may come to a place where we can say we know.
God’s plan is also that we come to know him. That’s why the Bible was given to us. The Apostle John wrote: “I write this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life” What does this mean for us today? We don’t guess, we don’t suppose, we don’t wish, we don’t wonder, we know. Our Redeemer lives, tap into that power today! Hope to see you on Good Friday and at our Easter celebration service!
