Honor a Worthy Teen
Let teens know you appreciate their service and testimony. Now is the time to applaud a teen in your church! The GARBC Student Service Award honors students for their Christian testimony and assistance in local church ministries. Do you know of a teen who models exemplary conduct and service for our Lord? Please take the time to nominate that teen for the 2010 GARBC Service Award. Hurry, the deadline is April 1! Teens will be recognized at the 2010 GARBC Conference in Schaumburg, IL, June 21-25.

Thanks for GARBC Support
Thanks to Pastor Stan Manus and the Temple Baptist Church family (Omaha, NE) for sending in a special financial gift after hosting a GARBC Sunday! Since the economic downturn, the GARBC has received notices from several churches of no longer being able to support the association financially. If you church has not hosted a GARBC Sunday, we invite you to do so. The ministries we offer our churches depend upon financial support. Gifts like this are a special encouragement!
