ACSTO & TOPS
If you pay Arizona state income tax, you have the opportunity to direct those tax dollars to the tuition needs of children who attend either Christian schools or special needs schools. The number of children in GBC who attend such schools is growing and many are in need of tuition help. If you’d like to participate as either a giver or receiver, please contact the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Book of the Month
October’s Book of the Month is Free to Be Holy by Jerry Wragg and Paul Shirley ($11). This book is written clearly and forcefully, teaching how God’s people might work by God’s means to look more like God’s Son. It provides clear instruction on sanctification and helpfully uncovers many modern errors that impede our growth in Christ-likeness. See the booktable servants for more information as well as a reading guide with an accompanying one-month reading plan.
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/sermon/111013-sermon/). The elders are also available to answer any questions.
