Youth Ministry Surge “Thank You” Project
As you may recall, Our youth ministry and leaders wanted to do something to encourage the staff at Norfolk Manor long term care facility which has been particularly hard hit by the Corona Virus. So through our "Surge Outreach Ministry" our youth, leaders and several members of the GBC family baked cookies and treats for the staff at this home.
This came from one of the staff there: "Can't thank you enough for all u did to organize that. Incredible kindness for all that were involved. I separated and made up plates for all the staff to take home . They were very pleased that they could enjoy with their families."
Jennifer, who organized this for our youth ministry, shared this: "It was such a pleasure to talk to and encourage a group of front line heroes who are working hard to give quality care in these difficult times. Thank you to everyone who participated. You are making a difference!"
That's faith in action! May we keep letting our light shine especially in these difficult times.

A thought for the day: Relax and give God your worries in prayer.
Do you count your blessings? In times like these, you must continually remind yourself of all God has done in your life.
But do you also count your worries? Why would I want to do that, you ask? Often, we just have a general sense of anxiety, but we don’t know what’s causing it. Before you can give God your worries, you need to have a clear idea of what they are. Once you’re aware of them, or better yet have written them down, you can hand them over to God in prayer.
Peter says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you” (1 Peter 5:7). You weren’t designed to carry your worries. It’s unnatural. God is big enough and strong enough to handle all your worries.
In His grip,
