Hi, Grace Bible Church!
Here’s a brief rundown of what’s coming up over the next days and weeks at Grace:
Christmas in October | September 30 – October 28
This month we have the opportunity to provide Christmas gifts for the children of Orphanages of Kenya, one of our supported missions. Stop by the display in the foyer to choose a gift tag for a child. The gifts for Christmas will include needed new clothing, special projects, equipment, and monthly sponsorships. There will be volunteers at the display each Sunday in October, so feel free to ask questions. We’re so excited to be able to support this ministry of caring for orphans!
Orphanages of Kenya has also provided a bottle and can drop-off at GBC. Bring your recyclable cans and bottles to church on Sundays and deposit them in the drop-off located on the north side of the administration building. It will be open every Sunday on an ongoing basis from 9:00 – 9:25 am, as well as after church. There will be a team member there to assist you with your deposits. This is a painless way to help these orphan children as they pursue their dreams in Kenya.

We are still in need of men or high school students who would like to volunteer as meal crew workers at our Women’s Retreat. There is no cost to serve as a volunteer. You will be provided meals and separate lodging with the rest of the volunteers. Responsibilities for the weekend would include helping with meal prep, serving meals, washing dishes, and cleaning the dining hall. Volunteer meal crews help to keep registration costs down, and your help is greatly appreciated!SIGN UP FOR THE MEAL CREW
This Sunday we will look together at 1 Corinthians 16:1-9 as we continue our study in 1 Corinthians. We encourage you to read ahead and come prepared to hear from God’s word.

October Missionary Highlight | Orphanages of Kenya
Arlan and Cathy Mendell direct Orphanages of Kenya, a small, non-profit ministry with a passion to care for needy children. In Kenya there is poverty and hunger beyond Western thought, and thousands of innocent children are affected by the diseases that have stripped them of their mothers and fathers. The mission of the orphanage is to rescue these children and to ensure that they have a chance to survive in this world despite the neglect and the harsh conditions that they have faced. The orphanage, nicknamed “The Promised Land,” provides the children with a warm and comfortable home. They are given clothes to wear, three meals a day, are provided with caretakers who love them, and most importantly, are given a solid Christian education. Orphanages of Kenya attempts to give these children the schooling and the Christian-based faith they need to succeed.
