Book of the Month
June’s book of the month is Family Worship by Donald S. Whitney ($7). In less than 70 pages, this book describes the importance of practicing Scripture reading, praying, and singing together as a family. See the booktable servants for the accompanying reading guide that includes a suggested one-month reading plan.
Restoration and Church Discipline (Matthew 18:15-17)
Jesus directs the church to patiently and gently pursue its sinning believers that they may be won back from their sin. In cases where the professing Christian refuses to repent of sin, Jesus directs the church to remove the unrepentant one from the church family and fellowship. GBC practices church discipline as prescribed by its bylaws in accordance with Matthew 18:15-17. Regular attendance at GBC is considered affirmation of this biblical practice. If you have any questions regarding church discipline please listen to our sermon titled “The Heart of Christ for our Holiness” located on our website (www.gbcaz.org/2013/11/111013-sermon/). The elders are also available to answer any questions.
