Missions Booster Emphasis This Sunday!

Posted in E-News Alert, GPBC Events

Tomorrow is Missions Booster Emphasis Sunday at GPBC! As we seek to make a Difference in many areas this year, none is more important than worldwide evangelism! We are praying that we will not only continue supporting over 100 missionaries around the world, but that we will be able to take on several new missionaries as well.

As we seek to Make a Difference in Missions there are three things that we are asking every GPBC member to do:

  1. Please pray and ask God what He wants your weekly Faith Promise Offering to be.
  2. If you are already involved in Faith Promise Giving, could you prayerfully increase your weekly amount?
  3. Personally fill out a Faith Promise Card to boost our Missions giving for the rest of 2018

Remember that you can give either in an Envelope in any service, Online on the GPBC website, or you may use the GPBC Phone App. Be sure to designate your offering for Missions.

Thank you for helping us to Make a Difference in Missions!

 God bless!

“Time to Change Sunday” – Daylight Savings Time is Sunday March 11

Posted in E-News Alert, GPBC Events

Time to Change Sunday!
Could This Sunday Actually Be A Time That Some Things Need Changing?

Tonight we must set our clocks forward an hour so that we might stay on track with Daylight
Savings Time. This is the tough one that takes away an hour of sleep on Sunday Morning!

As we reset our clocks it is also an opportunity to “Redeem the time” that God gives us every day? (Eph 5:16)

Moses asked God to “Teach us to number our days that we might apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
(Psalm 90:12)

Have you ever asked yourself, “Where did the time go?”

Here is a poem that helps us answer that question:

When as a child I laughed and wept, time crept.
When as a youth I dreamed and talked, time walked.
When I became a full grown man, time ran.
And later as I older grew, time flew.
Soon I shall find while traveling on, time gone.

Source Unknown

We must not neglect the time that we have today to live, love and labor for our Lord!

My prayer is that each of us might realize that this is not only Time Change Sunday, but perhaps this
could be a time for each of us to examine our lives and see if there are actually Some Things That
Need Changing!

Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead before you go to bed on Saturday night and please be on
time to Sunday School and Church!

God bless you! Lord willing I will see you on Sunday…On Time!
