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 (email@example.com).
Are You Considering Adoption?
If you have been considering, praying about, or desiring adoption, there is a unique opportunity that our church leaders have been made aware of. If you would like more information, please contact Omri Miles (firstname.lastname@example.org).
