LOVE WORKS Starts This Sunday

Pastor Rick Adams

This Sunday GPBC will begin the LOVE WORKS!” projects for the week of March 19-26, 2017!

Jesus clearly taught that as Christians Our LOVE must WORK!”

When he was asked “Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”     Matthew 22:36-40

James, the half-brother of Jesus “What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?  If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works.” James 2:14-18

There are many ways that GPBC will express our Love for God and to Others this week!

Please come this Sunday and learn how you can get involved!

As a Church, we want to work together as a mighty army of God turning East County upside down with the Gospel and Love of Jesus Christ!

As Individuals, we want to take Jesus to the people with our personal witness and compassion.

 

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

See You Sunday!

God bless! Preacher

God has blessed Greater Portland Christian Academy in an incredible way and this Sunday we want to tell you all about it!

Ever since our beginning, GPCA has partnered with parents and families to help train and educate their children for the glory of God!

At GPCA we are committed to “Excellence in Education!”  The basis of that education is a “bible based education with a biblical worldview!”

GPCA offers that alternative at one of the most reasonable prices in East County and the Greater Portland area.

GPCA is preparing for our 12th year of education with K-4 thru 8th grade.

We are also giving every member of GPBC the first chance of placement in GPCA for the new 2017-18 school year.

If you are interested or praying about this, please know that the summer will be here and over in less than 6 months. The classes will fill up quickly and it is important that you get your children registered as soon as possible.

On April 1st GPCA will extend that invitation to those who are not members of GPBC. So please take advantage of this opportunity!

If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Tallie Hein, our School Administrator, at 503-761-1136. She will answer any questions that your may have about costs or openings for the new school year of 2017-18.

Mrs. Tallie Hein, Administrator

Don’t miss this Sunday as we showcase GPCA and hopefully help you to make your decision for the education of your children next year!

God bless!
