A sincere thank you to the following pastors and churches for expressing their appreciation of the GARBC by sending special Christmas gifts to support the association’s general fund:
First Baptist Church, Pastor Larry Lindow, Littleton, Ill.
First Baptist Church, Pastor Brian Wilkins, Waverly, Iowa
Rustic Hills Baptist Church, Pastor Stan Lightfoot III, Colorado Springs, Colo.
These gifts support all the churches in the association, as they enable the GARBC resource team to minister. Think ahead to February. Would your congregation be willing to take a Valentine’s love offering to help the GARBC help churches?
Take part in a missions trip before and after the conference. Teens, adults, and families from your church will have opportunities to help area church plants and growing churches with outreach and evangelistic activities. Experienced believers can mentor existing churches to help develop and strengthen their church bodies. Plan now to take part in this incredible experience; options are available for both weekend and weeklong missions trips. E-mail Andrea Gower, GARBC conference coordinator, if you are interested in taking part.
During the conference, teens, adults, and families will also be able to put into action Bible teaching they learned during the week. Participate in the conference, Students Alive!, and Talents For Christ as a church or family—and serve at the same time!
