Announcements for 10 June 2018

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

EQUIP CLASS: MEN / WOMEN OF GRACE – SINGLENESS | SUN 24 JUNE |11.00 AM  

How should I follow Jesus as a single man or woman? How can I cultivate godly contentment in singleness, even as I struggle with loneliness and anxiety? How can we encourage the singles among us in the church? What are some ways in which married couples can serve those who are single?

We will be addressing these important questions and more at the next Men / Women of Grace class on Sunday, 24 June, 11am-12.45pm. All are welcome, whether you are single or married. Come join us! 

Men will meet in Rooms 516-519. Women will meet in Room 310.

 

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY | TODAY 10 JUNE | 9.30 AM | ROOM 516

Age 3 - 12 

At VBS, the children learnt about the faith of Rahab (in Joshua), Gideon (in Judges) and Abigail (in 1 Samuel).

In June they shall learn of 3 more in Judges, who were called by God into difficult situations to save the nation of Israel and discover their purpose in God's plan.

This week they will learn about Jepthath - The outcast.

Theme Verse: Romans 8:28 "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."

Please pray for the volunteers from Cher Ming's CG, Matthew and David's CG and Carrie for helping give the teachers a break and that they will be touched by the Spirit to deliver God’s word.

MINISTRY

GBC REFORMATION CONCERT 2018: "PSALMS - GRACE THAT SINGS"

GRACE BAPTIST CHURCH SANCTUARY | SAT 27 OCT 2018

We have been blessed to be able to embark on our 3rd Reformation concert as a church family!

This year, we will center around the Psalms that reveals the heart of a Christian - we cry out, pray, and worship in sincere faith. Yet, amid the choking cares of life, our confidence in God can be shaken and our hearts can become cold. Praise the Lord that throughout history, hymn writers have returned again and again to the Psalms to combat fear, anxiety, cynicism, and unbelief. At GBC we can do the same. Grace sings in the Psalms.

CG NITE 7-7-7 HAPPENING SOON ON 7TH JULY AT 7PM! THEME - "ONE ANOTHER" | GBC

We are called in scripture to "one another" - such as to love one another, to encourage one another and to bear one another's burden. Yet we cannot obey such commands unless we are in a community. That's what Care Groups (CGs) are for - for us to be in a small community to learn to apply scripture together. 

CG Nite is an event for all CG members to celebrate God's Faithfulness and Goodness in our CGs and for those not yet in CGs to mingle and find out how you can be in one.
