Fourteen years have passed since the terrorist attacks on America that happened on September 11, 2001. Today’s young people in high school and college are too young to remember what it was like before 9/11. They have never enjoyed the sense of peace, security and freedom from fear that so many of us took for granted.
Let us remember the tragedy of 9/11, remembering the sacrifice of the innocent victims in the twin towers of the World Trade Center, those within the walls of the Pentagon, and the heroic passengers of Flight 97 that crashed in Pennsylvania. Let us remember the thousands of first responders who sacrificed life and health to aid the victims of this tragic day in our history. And, let us remember those who have lost their lives in the fight against terrorism since 9/11.
Please take time today to remember and pray for God to bring healing to our nation, and ask Him to keep us safe from harm, and to turn the hearts of our people back to God.
May God Bless America!Read More
Make plans to join us on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015, at 10:45am, as the GPBC adult choir, Kids of Praise children’s choir and drama team present an original musical program, My Eyes on the Cross.
Jesus Christ and His death on the cross stands as the pivotal point of history. In fact, it is from the life of Christ that we count the years on our calendar, and much of our society’s focus on mercy and compassion flow from the example of Jesus Christ in His life and death on the cross.
But how does the cross of Jesus Christ impact our lives today? Does it really make a difference in our relationships, in our work, in our school and in how we relate to society? Can the cross change our perspective on every part of life?
You are invited to join us for a musical celebration on Easter Sunday as we remember the cross, focus on the sacrifice on the cross, and rejoice in the resurrection power over sin and death.Read More

Jesus said, “Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:13-16).
This Sunday we begin our Spring Sunday School Campaign with the theme “Pour on the Salt, Turn on the Light!”
Every member and friend of GPBC is encouraged to be in Sunday School this week for “Tell Your Story” Sunday. One of the most powerful witnessing tools you and I have is our personal testimony of how we came to know Jesus Christ. Share your testimony with someone this week, and come to Sunday School and share the report of how God let you use your story to talk to someone about Jesus Christ this week.
In our Spring Emphasis on Souls, we have added another opportunity for you to be a witness in our community. Join us Tuesday at 6pm for soul winning visitation, in addition to Thursday morning at 10am and Saturday morning at 10am. Also, for the next several weeks, we will be offering a special “Soul Winning Tips and Techniques” class on Saturday morning at 9:30am (coffee and donuts, too!).
I hope we will see you in Sunday School this Sunday!Read More
Scott McFeters & Vatik Dulo, two young men from GPBC, are on an extended missions trip in the Philippines and Thailand, assisting missionaries and national pastors with much needed construction projects.
In Roxas, Philippines, working with BIMI missionary Rick Fallon, the young men assisted with soul winning and discipleship. Scott preached and then the young men directed the construction of a house for a national pastor whose home was destroyed in the recent typhoon.
Missionary Rick Fallon planned for a special day for the Sunday Bro. McFeters and Bro. Dulo were there, and they saw over 160 in attendance for the Sunday morning service where Bro. McFeters preached. There were 50+ first time visitors, and 32 adults trusting Christ as Savior. Several others were saved in personal evangelism, and the young men were able to lead in some home discipleship classes as well.
Then, a quick trip to Thailand for a little more than a week where they traveled with BIMI missionary Jonathan Ballou to assist a national work among the Lisu people in the mountains near the border of Myanmar (Burma).
Today, they traveled back to the Philippines where they will be working in Cebu with BIMI missionary Frank Denisi, planning to assist with rebuilding projects related to the recent typhoon.
Please continue to pray for Bro. Scott and Bro. Vatik as they minister. Pray for their physical health and safety, for souls to be saved, and that they will be a blessing and encouragement to the missionaries and national pastors and churches to whom they minister.
