Don’t forget the time change this weekend as we ‘fall back’ an hour. With all the pressures going on around us right now let’s be sure we don’t ‘fall back’ in our faith though (sorry, couldn’t resist!).
November GBC activity calendar
Our latest monthly calendar is available. You can use it as a reminder of what’s coming up but also as a prayer prompter for you to raise up in prayer what God is doing here at GBC throughout the month.
Fall work party coming up
Our fall work party is happening this Saturday. This is an opportunity for us to help our Property Team with some of the things that need to be done to get ready for winter. There will be a variety of tasks to do. Please come for all or part and pitch in the help out starting anytime after 9am.

We finish our fall theme of ‘One Body, Many Parts’, looking at spiritual gifts Sunday. Patrick will be finishing up and recapping as we look at what is the ‘excellent way’.
Remember, you can join us as we gather in-person or you can connect through our website www.guelphbiblechapel.ca our YouTube channel as well as Facebook LIVE.
Thought for the day: God always treats us with mercy.
Tuesday I shared some thoughts on how God seeks a relationship with us and I hope that was an encouragement. During it I shared a verse from Peter’s first letter to the early church. In that letter Peter goes on to write: “All honor to God, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ; for it is his boundless mercy that has given us the privilege of being born again so that we are now members of God’s own family”. In his mercy….did you catch that? The more I understand grace the more it amazes me. It’s completely undeserved and unmerited, yes, and it’s based on the spirit of mercy that is part of God’s character.
This truth should give us hope even when we blow it (and you will at some point if you haven’t already; I know I have!), when we fail, God doesn’t get mad at us. He always acts with mercy toward us. Why? As a follower of Jesus, you’re covered in his blood and salvation. That’s the truth and hope we have in the cross, that his mercy extends to us even though we deserve his wrath. No matter what’s in store for you, you can rest completely in that truth.
In His grip,
