GBC Programs

Upcoming:  

Christmas candlelight service:  Sun., Dec. 17 at 6:30 p.m.  Sermon will continue the Christmas series:  People Changed by Christmas.  It will be based on Matthew 2:1-18 and is entitled:  Herod:  One Resistant to Change.

Sundays

Morning Worship Service

Sunday morning worship service begins at 11:00 a.m. and typically wraps up close to 12:00 pm (or shortly thereafter). 

Services consist of a time of music, reading from God’s Word, prayer, and worship followed by a sermon delivered by the Pastor.

NOTE:  Sermons are NOT recorded; you will not find a link on the website.

Corporate worship is an important time where we can come together as God’s family and learn from His living Word and be encouraged by one another, in our walk with God. From the pulpit the Holy Bible is the authoritative source for all spiritual learning and discernment.

Music is often accompanied by piano or organ, while lyrics and responsive readings are found in the hymnals provided.  A variety of soloists and groups also often provide special music.

Sunday School (Sept. through June, except the last Sunday of the month) 

Note:  our last week with Sunday School prior to Christmas will be Dec. 10/17

Sunday school for high school and older  starts at 10:00 a.m. and is a rich time for learning from God’s Word.  The study formats range from small group discussions to interactive DVD-based  curricula.  We encourage each and every one to attend as we discover God’s truths with real-world application for our daily lives.  

The youth (Gr. 8 & up) will be learning about answers to the ‘big’ questions of life, from both the perspective of other religions and of Christianity.  The approach is apologetics-based.  We’ll be working through a DVD study entitled ‘Gospel Journey Maui’.  See a trailer, and find out more information here.  The adults will be continuing their study in Matthew, particularly the Sermon on the Mount.

Sunday School Breakfast:  the last Sunday of every month (Sept. – June, except May) at 9:30 a.m. It is a rich time of fellowship.  This is a pot blessing, but if you’re new, please just show up!  There will be lots of food!

The church telephone number is 905-640-3111.

 

Missions:

Beyond our doors is a world that needs the love and assurance that God’s loves applies equally to them. The opportunities that God grants us to come alongside Him in His world and work is both rewarding and humbling. If you are aware of a need that you might suggest we consider supporting, our leadership team would be interested in hearing from you.

Contact us at 905-640-3111 and we will be in touch.
