Volunteers Needed in Children’s Ministry!

Please, pray and consider serving for this awesome Children’s Ministry opportunity. If interested, fill out a volunteer form, located in the hallway outside the sanctuary, and give it to Pam Elkins, as soon as possible. Volunteer t-shirts are also available for sale. We could use everyone’s help to make our VBS a success, and there’s always somewhere your gifts are needed!

 
The Apple Dumpling Festival will be on Saturday, October 21st, from 10-4pm.  We will be there with a GBC booth, and we need help from volunteers like you for setup, clean-up, handing out free water and hot-apple cider, and face painting for an hour (or more, if possible.) Please pray about joining us for this fun event of service, fellowship, and representing our great God!

 

GBC will be hosting another American Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, October 25th, from 3pm-7pm.  This is a chance for us to help save a life and to share the love of Jesus with our community.  There is a sign-up sheet in the hallway; and please, invite others to join us in this worthy endeavor.
