A standard reply was edited and approved to ask preliminary questions of leading candidates. The full meeting notes are posted on the Bulletin Board in the lower hallway outside the Printer Room.Please continue to be in prayer for unity as we work together to discover who God is raising up to lead us in this position. The next meeting of the full LPSC is Tuesday, June 11th, at 6:30PM. All are invited and welcome to sit in any or all of the LPSC meetings and participate in the discussions.
> DO YOU HAVE A HEART FOR KIDS? We are in the process of putting together the Sunday School teaching team. Help is needed for July and August. Help is needed for the upcoming school year starting in September. Please pray about serving God in Good News Kids. Contact Susan Ferris, 774.254.7257, firstname.lastname@example.org.
> FUN+FOOD+FIRE FOR MEN SATURDAY JUNE 8 Hey guys! Don’t miss volleyball, bocce, and throwing tomahawks followed by an epic BBQ, plus a challenge from God’s word at the fire pit. Plan now to come and bring a buddy with you.
> PRAYER + PRAISE…
- Praise God for His work for 3 years through Abi Link in the Horn of Africa and her safe return. Pray as she moves forward with a new job and college in the fall.
- Pray for the blessing of God on the new women’s bible study that launched this week on Thursday nights: Gideon – Your weakness, God’s strength.
> LEADERSHIP TRAINING Aspiring to serve in leadership is a good thing. Women and men are urged to prayerfully consider committing to an intensive leadership training group launching this summer.
The elders are offering this class with the goal of providing a solid Biblical foundation, through a period of intense study of the scriptures, in an effort to prepare the next leaders of Good News Bible Chapel. Qualifications for elders & deacons are found in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1. If you meet the qualifications and desire to be considered as part of the next group of leaders at GNBC, please submit your interest on a Connections Form. You can also feel free to speak with one of the elders.
We believe that we have a responsibility to train up and equip women to train other women, so women are welcome to participate.
> NEXT BAPTISM JUNE 30th Talk with one of the elders – Ray, Freddy, Dave, or Steve – about following Jesus by being baptized. Pick up a Baptism Info/Q&A packet from the Info Rack outside the gym entrance for more info and an application form.
> AN INVITE FROM CHRISTIE & ZACH Hey Church! Christie and I are delighted to be back worshiping with the Good News crew.
