Today’s Equipping Hour class
Job – Lessons from the Scenes of Suffering; (part 1 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.

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.
NGM Teachers Needed
Next Generation Ministries is in need of more people to help serve on Sunday mornings, 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.
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 (email@example.com).
Smallgroups are the best way to participate in the life of Grace Bible Church. If you are not in a smallgroup, you can see the InfoTable for more information, or mark your interest on a comment card.
Book of the Month
Agape Leadership: Lessons in Spiritual Leadership from the Life of R. C. Chapman ($7) is the book of the month. This small book is taken from a larger biography on R. C. Chapman. In it, you will hear echoes of the principles that our church has come to prize in the BUILD and Wellspring disciplines. See the booktable servants for more details and the accompanying reading guide which includes a suggested one-month reading plan.
