Lost and Found
The Lost and Found is really full. Please check the tables in the upstairs hallway for anything you may be missing.
Things did not come together for the Halloween Extravaganza, so we will not be hosting it this year. We love this outreach event, though, so if you've got questions or interest in helping next year, please let someone on staff know. Thanks!
Brunch and Craft with Karen Snyder
Tuesday, November 14, 9:30am
Women of GPBC, you are invited to join the Tuesday morning Bible Study group for the end of term brunch on Tuesday, November 14 at 9:30am to hear from Karen Snyder, one of our own homegrown global partners, AND get a jump start on Christmas. You'll be treated to brunch, hear Karen speak, and make a gift to get ahead of your Christmas shopping! We will meet in the Columbia Room.
This will be a fundraiser for Karen. Now that she is beginning her ministry in Florida, she needs a little extra help, and we can be part of it. No donation is necessary - just appreciated. Come whether or not you can give anything as your prayer support is the best gift for her. Questions? Judy Pinkerton at 503-901-6962 or .
Women’s Christmas Brunch
Operation Christmas Child
The world’s largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world.
We have a HUGE goal to send 250 shoeboxes AND to enroll every one of them in The Greatest Journey discipleship program. However, that goal is only met with your involvement!
PACK A SHOEBOX—Fill a shoebox with gifts, using new guidelines.
PRAY—Pray that God will touch the heart of the receiving child
GIVE AND FOLLOW—Give $9 to cover shipping and choose if you would like to track your box.
DISCIPLE—An additional $6 gift also gives the child the 12-week discipleship course and a New Testament.
DROP OFF—Bring your shoeboxes to GPBC on November 19.
(Complete instructions available here or in lobby.)
IF:Gathering 2018 - February 9-10, 2018
The IF:Gathering is a two-day gathering where women all over the globe come together via simulcast to wrestle with essential questions of faith and encounter God in a way that allows us to be unleashed to give Him away. This year's big IF question is what IF we followed God with perseverance instead of insecurity? On February 9-10, we'll join the IF:Gathering at GPBC to remember why following God and making disciples matters. In big and small ways, God is moving, and He is equipping you to live out your calling. Join us. Registration is free: https://register.ifgathering.com/.
