“All over the country—Judea, Samaria, Galilee (Portland)—the church grew. They were permeated with a deep sense of reverence for God. The Holy Spirit was with them, strengthening them. They prospered wonderfully.” Acts 9:31
This Sunday, May 28, is Community Sunday!!! We will be all together as a whole church family to celebrate how the Holy Spirit and Jesus are continuing to build and grow our church at GPBC just as they did in the book of Acts. God is with us and making us prosper!
We will see this in the people God has given to our church like new members, graduates of various ages, seven people choosing baptism, and a baby dedication. We will be led in worship by our Ignite Student Worship band! (AWESOME!!)
We will also honor our loved ones who are no longer with us. Anyone who would like to honor their loved one with a picture, please bring a 4x6 or 5x7 picture of your loved one. This picture may include your loved one with you or your family. These pictures will be placed on whiteboards in the auditorium during the station time. We will affix them with adhesive strips that are easily removable, so there will be no damage to the photos. Please also come prepared to write your loved one’s name under their picture along with two to three words describing them.
We look forward to observing and experiencing together how God’s Spirit is with us, strengthening us in all circumstances, and causing us to prosper together for Jesus’ sake.
