FEBRUARY 6, 2019
Hi Good News family!
Here’s a few things you should know this week…
> WE NEED TO PRAY Is it even possible that you don’t need prayer right now? I know I do. Our church family does. Our nation does. I’m pretty sure someone close to you needs prayer. Join us Thursday (tomorrow) night at 7pm in the lower chapel for prayer. No sermon. No singing. Jut praying. See you tomorrow night at 7.
> BRING YOUR BABY BOTTLE BACK THIS SUNDAY with your loose change/cash/ check. Bring them back this Sunday, February 17th. Your money will be used for resources for mothers-to-be, training materials for volunteers, and monthly phones, rent and heat for Abundant Hope, our local Christ-centered Pregnancy Resource Center.
> EVER WONDER WHY God has you where you are right now? Ever wish you were someplace else in life? God wants to talk with you this Sunday through the life of one guy who found himself far from home and family, surrounded by “not your friend,” and was still used by God. That’s The Story, chapter 18.. Read Daniel 1-3, 6 Jeremiah 29-31.
> NEXT MEN’S BREAKFAST IS THIS SATURDAY! FEBRUARY 9th Don’t miss Round 2, and the second Stepping Up video, 7:30-9:30am this Saturday, February 9th. Don’t miss a great chance to get to know brothers at GNBC, and get some solid biblical coaching as a man, husband, and dad, and get some breakfast. See Stu McKeller or Darian Medeiros with any questions.
> WOMEN’S IF GATHERING This FRIDAY & SATURDAY Sisters, you’re invited to join a local IF Gathering group February 8 & 9. Sign up online to watch livestream on your own at: https://ifgathering.com/if2019 — or search to find a local IF Gathering group of sisters near you: https://iflocal.com

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. – Colossians 3:12-15
Only by grace,
