Arrive Early for Coffee and Fellowship
Please join us for coffee at our CoffeeTable, next to BookTable. We serve iced and hot coffee from 9:00am-9:45am and after the service. Please make a practice of coming to church early to enjoy coffee and fellowship and browse the books. You will have plenty of time to be in the service early to begin to prepare your heart. If you are interested in serving at the CoffeeTable ministry, please contact Omri Miles (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Book of the Month
Our March book of the month is Michael Riccardi’s The Forest and the Trees ($11). In a mere 55 pages, Riccardi explains the overarching story and purpose of Scripture as well as how to avoid missing “the forest for the trees.” See the BookTable servants for more information about this book and the accompanying reading guide.
Restoration and Church Discipline (Matthew 18:15-17)
Jesus directs the church to patiently and gently pursue its sinning believers that they may be won back from their sin. In cases where the professing Christian refuses to repent of sin, Jesus directs the church to remove the unrepentant one from the church family and fellowship. GBC practices church discipline as prescribed by its bylaws in accordance with Matthew 18:15-17. Regular attendance at GBC is considered affirmation of this biblical practice. If you have any questions regarding church discipline please listen to our sermon titled “The Heart of Christ for our Holiness” located on our website (www.gbcaz.org/2013/11/111013-sermon/). The elders are also available to answer any questions.
