Mom’s Group
Mom’s Group meets every Tuesday from 10:00am-12:00pm at nearby valley parks and splash pads. Moms with kids of all ages are welcome. This is also a great opportunity for older moms to pour encouragement and wisdom into newer moms! Please contact Alex Pietropaulo at 602.568.6597 or at (alex@gbcaz.org).

Book of the Month
This month’s book of the month is Truth War by John MacArthur ($13). Since there is an ever-present call to defend the single body of Christian teaching that God has entrusted to the church, the BookTable ministry heartily recommends this helpful resource to you. Truth War offers helpful reminders of the importance of discerning the truth from every form of error, whether overt or subtle. See the BookTable servants for the accompanying reading guide with a suggested one-month reading plan.
