CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY | TODAY 11 NOV | 9.30 AM | ROOM 516

Age 3 - 8: Jesus’ Friends Obey Him.

Theme: Jesus gives His friends the Holy Spirit to help them obey God’s commands.

Memory Verse: John 15: 14 "Jesus said, “You are my friends if you do what I command."

Age 9 - 12: Losing Your Life for Jesus.

Theme: To gain eternal life, we must give up control of our lives to Jesus.

Memory Verse: Luke 9:23-24 “Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.”

MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY

To help us get to know our fellow church members better, the church office will be compiling a membership directory with photographs of each member. We need your help with this project! If you have not already provided the church office with a photograph of yourself, please send one to the GBC office by 18 November.
