Hi, Grace Bible Church!

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

Upcoming Events

Ladies, we hope you can join us for these upcoming events!

  • If you have children younger than school age, please join us for an informal time of fellowship with other moms and their kids. Meet at the Kooistra’s, 62959 Mimosa Dr. on March 1st from 9-11 am.
  • Please join the women of Grace Bible Church in a time of prayer on March 2nd. We will meet in the modular at 7:30 a.m. for one hour.
  • Save the date for our spring Women’s Brunch, which will be on April 6th from 10am-noon in the Chapel. More information and registration coming soon!

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.


Would you like to be a blessing to our local community? Here’s an opportunity!
  • Habitat for Humanity: Build a house this Friday (the 22nd) from 1-4:00 to help provide affordable homes for working families in our community. No experience necessary. They will provide all tools and training. Work is indoors.

Update from Fred Sackett with Orphanages of Kenya:

Hi Grace Church. This message is for both information and exhortation. I thought it would be interesting to you that we have already reached an amount of $406.41 from our Bottle and Can Drive for the Orphanages of Kenya. This is impressive for such a young program. GBC along with the Wed. and Fri. schools that meet at our facility have done a great job. Now for the exhortation. Considering the number of families that attend Grace I am sure we can improve on this greatly. I am sure there are many families out there who have not “jumped on the bandwagon” to support the Orphanage of Kenya in this very easy way.  My word of exhortation is to get on board.

The bottle and can bins are open every Sunday after church until 11:30. It is located on the north side of the administration building. Join the fun, bring your bags or boxes of plastic, metal and glass bottles and let’s “up our game” by double in the next 2 months.


Our Leading With Love Conference with Alexander Strauch begins tomorrow! 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. Please register now if you’d like to join us!


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.


As part of our celebration of the resurrection of our Lord this Easter, we will be having baptisms! If you would like more information or are interested in getting baptized, click the link below to learn about the meaning and practice of baptism and to get started. There will also be a baptism class on April 14th after the service.


Registration is open for Man Camp 2019 at Washington Family Ranch! This year the speaker will be Ty Neal, pastor of Grace Point Church in Las Vegas. You won’t want to miss what is always a fantastic and valuable time! The early bird registration cost is $135, and includes food and lodging. For more information, go to mancampnw.com.


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.
