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 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 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.
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!
This will be an opportunity for every member of GPBC to get involved in some of our greatest outreach opportunities this year! Please pray and ask the Lord to prepare your heart for what He desires of you in this noble effort of “Loving our neighbor as ourself!”
See you at the Rally!

Solomon, inspired of God, tells us “Where there is no vision, the people perish…” Proverbs 29:18.
In Jeremiah 23:28 the Scriptures tell us “The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully…”
GPBC Vision Night will be a service that I will cast our vision for GPBC during 2017 and share our LOVE WORKS Projects for this Spring!
I simply cannot express to you the importance of every member and friend of GPBC to be here!
Please mark your calendar and make plans to come to this exciting service! I know that I can depend on you to pray and prepare for this great night!
God bless you!
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!
