Together We Do Good Things

In the life of a church good things happen all the time that nobody knows about. Over the last three months some good things have happened at Grace and I would be foolish to not share them with you. So...let me get right to it.

  • It's no secret that GBC has been dealing with some financial challenges. God has been faithful, but we have not been recieving tithes and offerings like we projected at the beginning of the year. However, the good news is in the second quarter of the year (April-June), Grace finished in the black. Thank you for being faithful in your giving to the Lord at Grace!
  • The week of June 12-16 Grace hosted "Deep Sea Discovery." One-hundred twenty-five pre-schoolers through 5th grade registered and attended VBX; and, 95 volunteers, under Beckey's leadership, pulled off a great week. All of that is good news, but the best news is 5 students verbally communicated they wanted to follow Jesus.
  • The week of June 27-July1 our youth attended FUGE camp in Jefferson City, TN at Carson-Newman University. Sixteen students and 5 adult volunteers where challenged to be "Unashamed" with their faith in Christ. The good news...3 of those students rededicated their lives to Christ and a fourth recieved specific instruction about God's calling in their life. 
  • Each week people at Grace face all kinds of challenges. Our loving church family does the best it can to encourage those who might be facing difficulty. We can't take their challenges away, but we can become God's "hands and feet" to minister to them. The good news is...God uses us to speak to people during their time of struggle. The only reason I know this is because some of those people send emails or cards to share with me how much they appreciate our care. Let me share with you a piece of a note that I recently received..."I'm so glad that God led us to this wonderful church filled with loving and caring people who have such big hearts. I am forever grateful for Grace Bible Church and all who fill it with love and worship. God Bless you all!" 

Folks...TOGETHER WE CAN DO GOOD THINGS! I praise the Lord for the good things mentioned above. Keep up the good work.
