Celebrate Father’s Day at GPBC! – June 17, 2018 11am

Posted in GPBC Events, Pastor's Notes

Not long ago I read these words describing a dad:

A dad is a mender of toys, and a leader of boys. 
He’s a changer of fuses, and a healer of bruises. 
He’s a mover of couches, and a soother of ouches. 
He’s a pounder of nails, and a teller of tales. 
He’s a dryer of dishes, and a fulfiller of wishes.

Yes, a dad is a lot of things when it comes to being a father…but at GPBC we think Dad’s are Special!

God commands us to honor our fathers! Exodus 20:12. This Sunday at 11 am we will celebrate Father’s Day and honor every father present here at GPBC.

We also have a special gift for every Dad that attends this Sunday!

Our Teen Department will serve every dad present a frosty root beer float!

Please invite your Dad to be with you if he is able. If not please invite any father that you can and make this Sunday a day that he will remember in eternity!

I look forward to seeing you Sunday!

“All gave some, but some gave all!” – Memorial Day Recognition This Sunday

Posted in E-News Alert, Pastor's Notes

“All gave some, but some gave all!”

This Sunday GPBC will Honor WW II US Airforce SMSgt Robert V. Rogers

President Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men and women have died to win them.”

Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service.

Memory is a tricky thing.  Some things we have to work at not forgetting such as birthdays and anniversaries.

But may we never forget freedom isn’t free!  Veterans are a symbol of what makes our nation great, and we must never forget all they have done to ensure our freedom.

Sadly those men and women that served in WW II are quickly passing away. According to US Department of Veterans Affairs statistics, 558,000 of the 16 million Americans who served in World War II were alive in 2017. That number is believed to have dropped by another 50,000 in 2018.

General George S. Patton once said, “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.”

We have in GPBC one of those WW II veterans who is still living among us. It is SMSgt. Bob Rogers. He served in WW II from 1941 and retired from the military in 1973.

This Sunday we will honor him with a beautifully framed certificate expressing our gratitude and appreciation for his service to our country and for the preservation of our freedom.

Please make plans to be with us this Sunday morning at 11 AM as we celebrate Memorial Day at GPBC!

An unknown patriot said, “Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.”

To those in uniform still serving today and to those who have served in the past, we want to honor and say thank you for the high price that was paid!  Remember “All gave some, but some gave all!”

God bless!
