GPBC Thanksgiving Service and Pie Fellowship – Tues Nov 20, 2018 7:00 pm

Posted in GPBC Events

Psalm 103:1-2 says “Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.”

 As we come together as a Church family for our Thanksgiving Eve Service, it is my desire that we “not forget all of His benefits” upon us!” God has been so good to all of us! The answered prayers! The unseen hand of protection and provision!  We are all indeed a blessed people!

Please make plans to be with us on Tuesday Evening November 20, 2018 at 7pm. Please come prepared to give a testimony and enjoy a great time of fellowship after the service. We are asking every family to bring a pie or dessert large enough for your family and another family the same size.

This will also be the night that we are asking everyone to bring Your Thanksgiving Offering; however, you may bring it to any Service throughout the month of November, 2018!  May our God bless you for helping GPBC to help “Others!”

 Also please remember to bring your Thanksgiving Basket items on Sunday Morning, Nov 18, 2018.

We’ll see you then!

GPBC 2018 Thanksgiving Offering to help the Byers Family and Anchor Baptist Church in Astoria, OR!

Posted in GPBC Events

GPBC has a tradition of giving an Annual Thanksgiving Offering to demonstrate our love and gratitude for all the Lord has done for us here at GPBC! 

We call this offering our “Others!” offering because everything that we give in this offering is going to “Others!” 

The Lord has led the Deacons and me to designate this year’s offering to go to our missionary, Kevin and Stacey Byers. They are planting a new church in Astoria, Oregon! This offering will be a tremendous help to them as they prepare to launch the Anchor Baptist Church on Easter Sunday of next year!  

In Acts 20:35 Jesus said “It is more blessed to give then to receive.” I know that God is going to bless as we partner together in this sacrificial effort!

Will you prayerfully ask the Lord what He would have for you to give towards this “Others!” offering”. By giving in this offering, you will be partnering with the Byers in reaching the souls of those living in Astoria for generations to come!

I am asking every member and friend of GPBC to pray and to prepare to bring your 2018 Thanksgiving Offering on or before the Tuesday Evening Thanksgiving Service on November 20, 2018.  Please use the special designated 2018 Thanksgiving Offering envelope for this purpose.  You may also give online or use the church app to give your offering. Just designated it as your Thanksgiving Offering

If you have any questions, feel free to talk to me or any of our Staff or Deacons.  I know this will involve a sacrifice for all of us, but compared to all that God has done for us, it really is the least we should do!  Let each of us be thankful and prove our love and appreciation to our Lord by what we give in this 2018 Thanksgiving Offering!  Trust me, in Eternity; you will be glad that you gave!  Thank you for helping us to continue “Making a difference!”

God bless you!

Praise The Lord! – 36 Years and Still “Making a Difference!”

Posted in E-News Alert, GPBC Events, Pastor's Notes

Regina and I will forever be grateful for the joy and privilege of serving here at GPBC with each of you! We love our Lord and we love this church!

As we celebrate 36 years of ministry here at GPBC, let each of us remember His goodness to us and let us also be reminded that nothing has changed since our beginning!

Our primary goal is found in our theme for this year: “And of some have compassion, making a difference!” Jude: 22

We praise the Lord for the way He continues to bless and help us as we labor for Him! It is my prayer that as we press on into the 37th year that we will remember all that we do is to be done for the glorify God!” 

Romans 15:5-6 tells us, “Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

As we enter our 37th year of ministry here at GPBC let us purpose to continue:

  • Glorifying God in all that we do!
  • Obeying God’s Word and Will for our Lives!
  • Manifesting Compassion and love for others!
  • Evangelizing the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

If our Lord should tarry His coming, may each of us commit to a life and ministry that honors and glorifies our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

Pastor Rick & Regina Adams

God Bless You!
