Hi, Grace Bible Church!

Here’s a brief rundown of what’s coming up over the next days and weeks at Grace:

Upcoming Events

Join us on March 3rd after the service for a short informational meeting about worship ministry at GBC. We will meet in the Multipurpose Room (next to the coffee station) for about 30 minutes. This will be a great time to get to know one another, learn about the worship ministry, and see how you can get involved.

SIGN UP FOR THE MUSIC MEETING

Would you like to be a blessing to our local community? Here are a couple of opportunities!
  • The Food Bank (NeighborImpact): Tomorrow from 1-4:00 (Friday the 15th) they need volunteers to pack boxes, sort food, etc.
  • Habitat for Humanity: Build a house next Friday (the 22nd) from 1-4:00 to help provide affordable housing for working families in our community. No experience necessary. They will provide all tools and training.
Call or email Dave Robinson to sign up. dave@gracebibleofbend.org / 541-325-9340

Jesus said, “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35). But what do loving relationships really look like? How does love affect how we relate to others at home and in the life of the church? How should love affect our leadership toward others? “Leading With Love” is a conference designed to explore those questions, as Alexander Strauch teaches us what Paul said to the church in 1 Corinthians 13. This conference will show you how the Bible’s teaching on love can help you improve your relationship skills, be more effective in the ministry God has called you to, and help you resolve conflict and division. Registration is still open!

At our Annual Meeting the church family overwhelmingly affirmed all of the elder candidates and current elders. We’re so thankful that the Lord has raised up these men to help shepherd and lead the church. We’ll be having an elder installation service on February 24th during the service.

Are you interested in being a part of or helping to lead a young adults ministry at Grace? They will be getting together for the first time on Monday, February 25th in the barn. Email Harrison Womack at harrison@gbcbend.org for more information.

Want to grow in your Christian faith? Better understand who God is and what the Bible teaches? Meet with a mentor for guidance about specific areas of Christian living? Or maybe you’re just curious about Christianity? We’d love to match you with a mature Christian trained in discipling and mentoring others for 12 weeks starting in March. Available for individuals and couples. If you’d like to receive discipleship/mentoring please click the button below. If you have any questions please call our Counseling and Discipleship Director, Dave Robinson at 541-325-9340.

We are in need of a team of volunteers to serve on the meal crew for Man Camp, which is April 26-28th at Washington Family Ranch in Antelope, Oregon. There is no cost to serve, and you will be provided separate lodging with the rest of the volunteers. Responsibilities for the weekend will include helping with meal prep, serving meals, washing dishes, and cleaning the dining hall. One of the ways Washington Family Ranch is able to keep registration costs down is through the help of volunteer meal crews, so your help is greatly appreciated!

February Missionary Highlight | Josh & Kristen Morneau

Josh and Kristen Morneau are new full-time missionaries in Slovenia with Josiah Venture. Josiah Venture focuses on relational ministry with a heart for youth in Central and Eastern Europe. With Kristen’s degree in teaching and Josh’s in music, they were a natural fit for Josiah Venture’s Fusion ministry, which uses music as a tool to reach young people. Through these relationships, they share about Jesus and equip young leaders to fulfill Christ’s commission through the local church. Since arriving in the city of Ljubljana in November 2018, Josh & Kristen have been immersed in full-time language study. After a year of learning the language, they expect to be sent out to begin a new Fusion ministry, and hope to see a new movement of God among the youth in Slovenia.
