Today’s Equipping Hour class
Job – Lessons from the Scenes of Suffering; (part 6 of 6) taught by Scott Maxwell. Class description: “We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord’s dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful” (James 5:11). This class will be an overview of the book of Job. The aim of the class will be to reveal the riches God has in this important book for His servants who suffer oftentimes without explanation.
Next week’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.
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 Jeff Maxwell with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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 (email@example.com) or Vincent Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
NGM Teachers Needed
There is an immediate need for an NGM (3-11) worker. These teachers serve on a 4-week rotation. If you are interested, please pick up an application at the InfoTable or mark your interest on a comment card.
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.
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? Please contact the church office (email@example.com).
Lost and Found
On the first of the month, all lost items will be donated, if not claimed. Please see the lost and found area near the InfoTable. If you have any questions, please contact the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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.
