Memorial Service for Margaret Bowman
Margaret Bowman was part of the GBC family for many years, most recently though she was part of our shut-in community. She served the Lord for many years as a missionary and impacted a lot of lives. We will be remembering her and celebrating a life well lived here at GBC on Tuesday June 20. There will be a time of visitation at 10am and then a memorial service at 11am with a luncheon to follow.
Memorial Service for Iva Ralston
For those who knew Mrs. Ralston when she was still part of the GBC family, this was an amazing, gracious woman who let her light shine in so many ways. We will be holding a memorial service for her on Wednesday June 21 at 1pm here at GBC. All who knew her are welcome to come out and celebrate a life well lived
Thought for the day: Steps Towards a Mature Prayer Life- Pray for Others
When you pray for others, you are taking your eyes off yourself and focusing on others who need God to enter into their lives and situations. Praying for others also allows you to intercede on behalf of another person.
Not sure where to start? Here are some ideas:
Pray for your family members
Pray for your friends
Pray for our city and the challenges it faces
Pray for an unreached people group
Pray for the persecuted church
Pray for hardships you have seen on the news
Pray through the directory and for the ministries of our church!
It really is a privilege to pray on behalf of other people and bring their needs before God. This helps us to stop focusing on ourselves but to focus on our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and for people who do not yet know Him.
Paul wrote this to Timothy: First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people…(1 Timothy 2:1)
Got that! Makes sense, right? Well then, lets get to prayer.
In His grip,
