This Sunday is our (Rescheduled) “I LOVE MY CHURCH!” Sunday at GPBC!

Posted in GPBC Events

This Sunday, February 24, 2019, GPBC will be celebrating our (rescheduled) “I Love My Church!” Sunday!

Due to the inclement weather event we experienced two weeks ago, our “I Love My Church” Sunday had to be cancelled, and has been rescheduled for this week.

Our theme for 2019 is “We Believe!”

While there are many voices today that speak out against the New Testament Church, let our voices resonate that we not only “Believe” in our Church…“we Love our Church!” 

God has been so good to GPBC! Let us not take for granted all that He has given us!

Lord willing, we will enjoy the special music of the choir, and soloists that will bless our heart and glorify God!   

I promise you that there will be messages that have been prayerfully prepared and preached from God’s Word.

We will also enjoy the blessed fellowship with some of the greatest people that you will ever meet in this world!

No wonder we Love our Church! Please do not take your church for granted! Please do not take your church for granted!

In Ephesians 5:25 the Bible tells us that “Christ loved the Church and gave himself for it!” 

Every Christian ought to faithfully love, attend and support their church! 

Let me also encourage you to bring any unsaved or unchurched friends with you this week!

It just might be a service that would change their life and their eternity!

As your pastor, let me challenge you to be in Sunday School at 9:45am sharp, our Morning Worship Service at 11am and then back again on Sunday Night at 6pm.

Hebrews 10:25 exhorts us Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. 

If there was ever a time 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!

Celebration of Marriageh

Friday, March 15, 7:00PM-9:30PM  (registration required)- refreshments provided

We are pleased to welcome Sam & Debbie Wood and Family Fortress Ministries for this Celebration of Marriage Conference, Friday-Sunday, March 15-17, 2019 at Greater Portland Baptist Church.

Here’s what Sam & Debbie Wood have to say about this important conference for all married and engaged couples: “Before marriage, couples pursuing a relationship find such joy and pleasure in being together that they talk for hours on the phone and can’t wait to see each other. After marriage, as time progresses, these same couples become so consumed with the demands of life that they tend to grow distant in their interests and activities. Celebration of Marriage addresses the danger of potential distance that can creep into marriage relationships by explaining God’s unifying purpose for marriage and how to recognize and deal with distractions that hinder His purpose. The conference challenges married couples and/or singles considering marriage to first find joy and significance in Christ and then to minister to their partner.” 

The conference will begin on Friday, March 15 from 6:30PM-9:00PM, and will continue on Saturday, March 16 from 9:00AM-3:30PM. Refreshments will be provided on Friday evening, a continental breakfast and lunch will be provided on Saturday. Then, Sam & Debbie Wood will be our special guests in all the services on Sunday, March 17, speaking on the family.

Each attendee will receive a conference syllabus, and there will be a gift book for each couple. Childcare is available if you request it with your registration.

Strengthen your marriage together by joining for the Celebration of Marriage Conference, Friday-Saturday, March 15-17, 2009.
