New small group starting up: Life’s Healing Choices
Life's Healing Choices series – a 10 week series (Intro week, 8 Teaching weeks, Wrap-up week) begins on Tuesday, January 24 at 7pm. If you already participate in a Small Group, please speak to your Small Group Facilitator, as some Small Groups may choose to meet at a different time. You do not need to be part of a Small Group to participate in this series. Our time together will consist of worship, a video teaching, discussion and prayer. Please contact Jacob Ginter (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
Join us on Sunday in-person or on our livestream as continue our new 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 Patrick continues to look at God’s righteousness and his sovereign judgment .
Want to prepare? Read the text for Sunday ahead of time: Romans 2:1-3:8

Thought for the day: Some Reasons to Have Hope in 2023
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 2023?
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 2022 reminded us of often. Just about everyone had their lives shook up in some way throughout this difficult year that saw not just the trouble of Covid continue but political and economic strife plus a war in Ukraine. 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 2023.
As we face the challenges and joys of the year ahead, I’ll be sharing with you over the next few weeks some unshakable truths that anchor our hope as Christians. 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,
