This week GPBC will be celebrating “I Love My Church!” Sunday, February 12, 2017.
We will enjoy the special music of the choir, and soloists that will thrill your heart and glorify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! There will also be helpful and encouraging preaching from God’s Word. We will also enjoy fellowship with some of the greatest people that you will ever meet in this world!
In Ephesians 5:25 the Bible tells us that “Christ also loved the Church, and gave himself for it”! Every Christian ought to faithfully love and support their church.
As your pastor, let me encourage you to be in Sunday School at 9:45am sharp, our Morning Worship Service at 11am and then back again Sunday Night at 6pm.
Let me also encourage you to bring an unsaved or unchurched friend with you this week! It could change their life and their eternity!
If there was ever a reason that we should love our church it is now! God has been so good to each of us! Let each of us show our love for our Lord and His church by not forsaking it this Sunday!
The psalmist said, “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.” Psalm 122:1
I am looking forward to seeing you!
God bless you!

Hebrews 12:2 exhorts, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
With these words in mind our focus for this new year is on the soon return of Jesus Christ. Like Jesus, we “must be about [our] Father’s business” in this year, serving faithfully, praying diligently, and hoping fervently for the soon return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
This year, will you join with us in fervent commitment to live for Christ? If Jesus returns this year, will you be found faithful?
There are many opportunities to serve the Lord in your daily life and through the ministry of Greater Portland Baptist Church. Take advantage of the open doors the Lord places before you to minister His love and grace. Be in your place when the church gathers together in worship. And don’t forget to “look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28,b).
We’ll see you in church tonight at 7pm for our Mid-Week service and this Lord’s Day; 9:45AM for Sunday School, 11AM for the Morning Worship Service and 6PM for the Evening Service.Read More
