Hi, Grace Bible Church!

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

Upcoming Events

Due to the closing of The City, we have transitioned all online giving over to a new platform called Planning Center Giving. Please begin using Planning Center from now on for your online giving to Grace by clicking the link below. Thank you for supporting the ministry of Grace Bible Church!


It’s a new year and we are starting a new Bible study on Tuesday mornings from 9:30-11:30. We will be digging into the book of Isaiah and getting together to discuss what the Lord is teaching us. Meetings will be every other week as follows: January 8 & 22, February 5 & 19, March 5 & 19, April 2 & 16. Childcare will be available. Cost is $20 (you can bring the money on Tuesday). Please RSVP to Heidi at heidirkooistra@gmail.com. Looking forward to growing alongside one another!

We are excited to introduce a new song this coming Sunday called “Ancient of Days”! You can listen ahead to the song above as you prepare your heart and mind for Sunday morning.

Our next membership presentation is coming up on January 13th. This is where new members of Grace Bible Church are presented to the church body during the service. If you are interested in becoming a member of Grace Bible, click on the “become a member” link below to get started.


Members of Grace Bible are invited to join us for our next Family Membership Night on Tuesday, January 22nd. We’ll share a potluck dinner from 5:45-6:30 pm, followed by worship, prayer, and a meeting from 6:30-8:00 pm. Please RSVP through the link below.


We use Planning Center for a number of different things including giving, and they now have a church app that you can download for your phone. Features include events, giving, and eventually groups.

Need a hand? The Care Team’s here to help! Every now and then everyone can use a little help. Do you have a practical need a brother or sister from the Care Team could help with? Whether it’s an emergency or an ongoing need, we can help with things like delivering a meal, childcare, home or car repair, snow removal, transportation, running an errand, help with moving, managing a budget, home cleaning and organizing, etc. Click the “Care Team Request” button below. Someone will call you soon. Questions? Call Dave Robinson at 541-325-9340, or email him at dave@gracebibleofbend.org.

We’d like to remind you that Orphanages of Kenya has provided a bottle and can drop-off at GBC as a way to raise money for the ministry. 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 after church on an ongoing basis. There will be a team member there to assist you with your deposits. For more detailed information on how and what to donate, click on the “more information” button below.


Did you miss last week’s sermon? Watch “What God Wants for You in 2019” from Philippians 1:12-30.

Sunday Gathering


This Sunday we will look together at 2 Timothy 3:16-17. We encourage you to read ahead and come prepared to hear from God’s word.
