Heritage College Choir - This Sunday!
We are excited to have the choir from Heritage College in Cambridge joining us this Sunday to lead in worship and special music. They will be singing a number of familiar songs. One of the songs which may be lesser known to the GBC family is Worthy Is the Lamb. If you would like to learn it in advance of Sunday, you can find a video at the following link: Worthy Is The Lamb - Hillsong Worship - YouTube
Open Altar prayer time returns
As I mentioned last week, we are returning to Open Altar prayer time. For those who are new to GBC, this is something we did regularly before Covid. Once a month I, or one of the elders, would be available at the front of the auditorium after the Sunday service for prayer. This could be for a personal prayer need, something that moved you during the service or even for direction from God. It was a special time that was very impactful for many.
Well, it’s back!
So, on Sunday, there will be two elders or pastors available to pray for you. We’re going to do this on a weekly basis for a bit and see how it goes. So, don’t be shy, come on up and pray with us!
Join us on Sunday in-person or on our livestream as continue our winter series, “Firm Foundations”-a study of the book of Romans
The foundation of a building is critically important for the stability of the structure that sits on it. In many ways our faith and relationship with God needs the same thing. How is your foundation? This winter we’ll be looking at this idea as we study the book of Romans, perhaps the best book of the New Testament for this kind of thing.
This Sunday Pastor Dan will look at what justification that leads to salvation looks like.
Want to prepare? Read the text for Sunday ahead of time: Romans 4

Thought for the Day: Jesus disciples learned from Him by listening carefully to His teaching.
The teaching ministry of Jesus was one of the most important aspects of His earthly ministry. It’s interesting to note that immediately after calling His first disciples, they followed Him throughout Galilee listening to Him “teaching” and “preaching” as we read in Matthew 4. In fact, Jesus most familiar sermon, the Sermon on the Mount, was presented soon after He instructed Peter, Andrew, James, and John to follow Him. Obviously, the Lord’s teaching ministry was one of the most important aspects of how He discipled His followers.
And what was part of his final mandate to His disciples? There was an emphasis on teaching. In Matthew 28, Jesus says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.”
We see from these examples that receiving solid teaching is a priority for disciples. These followers of Jesus were students. Followers of Jesus today must be students as well. Learning from Jesus means hearing, listening to, studying, and applying the written Word of God. It’s not just listening to sermons on Sunday but perhaps joining a Bible study or reading a book from our library. Regardless of what it is, find ways to continually be learning and growing in God through the Bible. Be sure you’re a student of God’s word your whole life and you will grow as a disciple.
