Welcome New Members - September 2018
We had the joy of welcoming 9 new members into the GBC family via transfer of membership last Sunday. We thank God for these treasures that He has led to our church and we commit as a church to love and care for them and to provide an environment that is safe for them to grow deep in Christ and to exercise their gifts of service and ministry.
L-R: Fellisia and Yanadi Soetanto, Hewlett Chew, Stanley Yin, Margaret Soh, Steven and Gek Noi Wong, and Alicia and Aaron Ng.
During his introduction of the new members, Pastor Ian reminded us that these new members are some of God's best treasures and when God leads his treasure to come and join us, we have a stewardship responsibility. God expects us to love them like He desires them to be loved and to provide them with opportunties to exercise their service and ministry muscles with the gifts that He has placed in them.
Welcoming these new members into our midst and thanking them for trusting us. We are overjoyed!
Indeed, we thank God for saving and planting good seeds in His garden. We pray along with Pastor Ian that we will submit to His Spirit's cultivation in our hearts in this church, that we will be a worthy church of receiving such treasures as these, that He will grow us together deep in Him and gather us in small groups to study His word to be shaped by the truth.
