One-Plus-logoNew Online Ministry for Singles
One Plus, an online ministry sponsored by Calvary Baptist Church, Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., is for Bible believing, Baptist singles active in their churches and screened by their pastors. Adult singles from 18 to 100 years old can complete a profile online and log in to connect with other singles. Online discussions are designed for singles to encourage one another in godliness and to meet one another in a meaningful way. One Plus offers resources in topics of interest to singles.

Pastors, you can facilitate participation by replying to an e-mail sent to you when one of your singles registers a profile so One Plus can know he or she is a member in good standing. Singles can sign up at One Plus. The first 250 join free!

Retreat Home Available
A newly renovated guest apartment is available at Rivendel Retreat, located on the west branch of the Delaware River on 1 1/3 acres in Deposit, N.Y. The guest apartment has two bedrooms, an eat-in kitchen, and a bath. (See guest apartment flyer.) The apartment is available to missionaries or pastors at a 50 percent discount for a daily, weekend, weekly, or monthly rate.

Owner Dr. Bob Gage, retired pastor in the GARBC, explains, “I was taught early on to take a 2-3 day retreat and plan my preaching schedule and church year. It was hard to find a place we could afford. Thus, this is one reason we purchased this retreat house.” For information, contact Dr. Gage:, 716.203.7187.

GARBC Ministries Video Presentations for Your Church
Three new video presentations for GARBC ministries are available to download free-of-charge for your church’s viewing. These videos would help your church family know about the valuable resources that the GARBC offers.
