Grace eNews

Grace eNews is a weekly online newsletter of GBC to better update everyone on community life in GBC. It is our hope that through the chronicling of church life – both people and events, the newsletter will keep the church community at GBC informed of what's going on in church and to encourage one another by telling how the word of God can be lived out in community.

If you would like to sign up for the newsletter, go to http://gracebaptistchurch.sg/enews.
