Grace Bible August 2, 2019

Today’s Equipping Hour class
Since We Heard: What the book of Colossians Teaches Us About Evangelism; taught by Omri Miles. Every Christian is called by God to preach the gospel to others, yet this duty can seem daunting at times. Since the day that the Apostle Paul heard of the impact of the gospel in Colossae, he couldn’t stop thanking God and praying for the church there. Now, Paul’s letter to the Colossians serves as an excellent example of what God loves to do through men and women who are faithful with His message.

Next week’s Equipping Hour class
Bibliology: How did we get the Bible? Can we trust the Bible? Inspiration, Canonization, Preservation, and Textual Criticism; taught by Smedly Yates

Build & Wellspring
Build (for men) and Wellspring (for women) are ministries designed for believers in Jesus Christ who have made GBC their home church. Focusing on gospel-transformed lives and seeking to grow in Christian faith, we will learn together how to have greater influence for the gospel, starting in our homes. These ministries will meet every other week. Build will take place on Saturdays, and will begin on September 14. Wellspring will be offered on Saturdays, and will also be available on Thursdays. Thursday Wellspring includes a children’s program (ages 0-7), and begins on September 12. If you plan to participate with us, please register as soon as possible so we can staff appropriately; space is limited. Registration closes Sunday, August 18. Register online at www.gbcaz.org/events.

Grace Bible Church will be offering an 11-week premarital class beginning soon. Completion of this class is a prerequisite for anyone being married by GBC staff and it’s a great way to start your lives together with a strong biblical foundation. Interested?

Book of the Month
July and August’s books of the month are Twelve Ordinary Men ($8) and Twelve Extraordinary Women ($8), both written by John MacArthur. These books provide excellent examples of God’s desire to use the weak things of the world to accomplish incredible feats and will help us to humbly walk in a manner worth of our calling. Please see the BookTable servants for more information and a reading guide with suggested one- month reading plans.
