August 26, 2018 Announcements
Student Ministries (grades 6-12) will be meeting tonight. Please come if you are a middle schooler, high schooler, or parent. We will meet in the worship center at 6:00pm for fellowship, teaching, and games. Contact Omri Miles with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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. We will interact with God’s Word through teaching, discussion, and homework. These ministries will meet every other week. BUILD will take place on Saturdays, and will begin on September 15. Wellspring will be offered on Saturdays (coinciding with BUILD dates), and will also be available on Thursdays. Thursday Wellspring includes a children’s program (ages 0-6), and begins on September 13. If you plan to participate with us, please register as soon as possible so that we will be able to staff appropriately; space is limited. Please see the InfoTable for a flyer with additional information, including exact meeting dates. Registration closes Sunday, September 2. Register online at www.gbcaz.org/events.
SALT Monthly Meeting (ages 18-30)
Join other college and career young adults Saturday, September 8 at 6:00 pm at the Hornak household for a potluck, time of sharing, games, and fellowship! Directions to the Hornak home and potluck specifics will be shared via GroupMe. Please contact Kate Demarest 480.234.8038 if you would like to be added to GroupMe.
If you are newer to the church, Discovery Lunch is a great place to enjoy some food, learn more about what the church believes as well as interact with an elder, if you have more specific questions. The next lunch will be hosted at GBC on Sunday, September 23 at 12:00pm-2:00pm. Future Discovery lunches will take place approximately on a monthly basis. Please register online at www.gbcaz.org/events. If you have any questions, please contact the church office (email@example.com).

Book of the Month
In August, the Booktable is featuring Hide the Word by Mark Altrogge. It is music designed to help you memorize the Bible. Each track is nothing but the Biblical text repeated 3 times to music, taking advantage of our natural ability to remember song lyrics. This is a great way to memorize the Bible as a family or individually. Some in our body have memorized hundreds of verses this way. We were able to secure special pricing direct from Mark Altrogge, just $6 per CD.
