Grace Bible Church is now housing a food pantry on campus. The food pantry is intended to help meet benevolence needs of those within our church body as well as, at times, those outside of our church. If you are in need or would like more information about the food pantry please contact Jeff Hantla (480.406.9219), the deacon who oversees our benevolence needs.
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.
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.
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 (omri@ gbcaz.org) or Jeff Maxwell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Book of the Month
November’s featured resource is J. C. Ryle’s book, The Duties of Parents ($4). In 34 pages, Ryle succinctly and insightfully summarizes seventeen basic obligations of Christian parents to their children. Every member of your family can profit from the wisdom contained in these few pages. Pick up a copy at the booktable along with the accompanying reading guide.
