Upcoming Events

Spring BeginsThe 1st Day of Spring is Wednesday, March 20th.

Spring is one of the most beautiful times of the year, spring brings about feeling of renewal and an important part of Christianity, with the resurrection of Christ, Easter, and the season’ theme of rebirth.

Spring is a great time to renew yourself and gain a fresh perspective on your life.  With flowers blooming and everything coming to life, it’s easy to feel a sense of change and rebirth happening all around us.  Even with a particularly brutal winter, spring always brings hope that summer will soon be on its way and that a fresh start is all around us.

Women’s Breakfast – Saturday, April 6th at 9:00 AM at GBF.  Rachel Gabler will share with us about their missionary work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
