GBC Programs


Fall Kickoff Sunday:  Sept. 9 – service at 10 a.m., followed by a barbeque at the Oates’.



Morning Worship Service              – Summer hours (July 1 – Sept. 9):  worship service at 10 a.m.; no                                                                            Sunday School

During the school year, Sunday morning worship service begins at 11:00 a.m. and typically wraps up close to 12:00 pm (or shortly thereafter).   We will resume the 11 a.m. services, and Sunday School on Sept. 16.

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) 

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) topic TBD for the fall.  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!
