NGM Promotion Sunday- August 4
August 4th is promotion Sunday for school age children in NGM. Promotion is based on the grade your child will be in for the 2019-2020 school year. All children entering Kindergarten through 5th grade should attend the appropriate class starting August 4th. Three year olds will remain in that classroom until they turn 4. Once your child turns 4, he or she will move to the Pre-K class. Once in the Pre-K class, they will remain there until the next promotion Sunday of their Kindergarten year. Please contact David Brittain (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Vincent Lee (email@example.com) with any questions.
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, August 4 from 12:00pm-2:00pm. Future Discovery lunches will take place approximately on a bimonthly basis. Please register online at www.gbcaz.org/events. If you have any questions, please contact the church office (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. 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 (coinciding with Build dates), 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. Please see the InfoTable for a flyer with additional information. Registration closes Sunday, August 18. Register online at www.gbcaz.org/events.
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.
