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 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.
The Master’s University Scholarship Fund
The Master’s University (a private Christian university in California) has established a unique relationship with Grace Bible Church, recognizing an opportunity to help theologically like-minded students attend TMU. The elders of GBC would like you to consider helping students from Grace Bible Church attend undergraduate programs at The Master’s University. You can give to this need by indicating your desire on your financial gift to GBC by including the note “TMU Founder’s Fund”. You can also recommend donations for a specific student. You can find out more by contacting Smedly Yates (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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 (email@example.com).
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. Both of these books provide excellent examples of God’s desire to use the weak things of the world to accomplish incredible feats.
