Here is a message from Pastor Dan:
GBC Men! A group of us will be reading through R Kent Hughes' book "Disciplines of a Godly Man" and meeting regularly to discuss what we're learning and encourage one another. If you're interested in joining us, please write pastor Dan for more info. (And please don't order the book from Amazon - we have cheaper ways to get it!).

Thought for the day: Some Reasons to Have Hope in 2024
One of my favorite scenes from the Lord of The Rings movies (if you’ve been around GBC a while you’ll know this) is where a young boy who is being pressed into battle says to the hero Aragorn: “They say it is hopeless”. He replies: “there is always hope!”
Is there hope for 2024?
There is always hope!
It’s a critical question, particularly as we fully enter into this new year. We live in a broken world, a truth that 2023 reminded us of often. Just about everyone had their lives shook up in some way throughout this difficult year that saw not just growing inflation but political and economic strife plus now a war in Gaza and the war in Ukraine rages on. I suspect we all struggled with hopelessness at various points of the year. I know I did. Probably some of you are struggling with this right now because so many are enduring challenges we’ve never faced before.
That’s why the question, “Is there hope?” is so important for 2024.
This year, no matter what you’re facing, remind yourself, and any who will listen, of the truth we read in 1 Peter 1- In his great mercy God has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
There is always hope!
In His grip,
