Gratitude for Special Gifts

A big thank you to the following pastors and churches who have provided special gifts through hosting GARBC Sunday or by providing a Christmas remembrance: Pastor Tom Robbins, Faith Baptist Church, Camp Point, IL; Pastor Terry Gibson, First Baptist Church, Portage, IN; Pastor Brian Wilkins, First Baptist Church, Waverly, IA; Pastor David Peterson, Karen Street Baptist Church, Omaha, NE; Pastor Jim Murphy, First Baptist Church, Johnson City, NY; Pastor Jim Luedeman, Vermillion Baptist Church, Perrysville, OH. Also, thank you to churches for remembering the GARBC Resource Center staff with Christmas greetings–you encouraged us!

The GARBC Resource Center staff is grateful for these special gifts and for the faithful churches that support the association month after month. As you set the church budget, please consider adding the GARBC to your church budget if you do not support the association with your gifts currently. Financially-strapped churches have sent us notice of their withdraw of support; we need the financial backing of our churches to continue to assist pastors and churches in our association.
