THE FLOWERS TODAY are given in memory of Ann Durian by her family. Ann was a long-time member of Grace Baptist (The Baptist Temple) in Philadelphia.


JOIN US ON APRIL 13 AT 6:30 P.M. for a Maundy Thursday celebration.  We will have a sacrificial meal (soup and bread) followed by a number of readings and music which will lead us up to the crucifixion and commission us to go out into the world and win disciples. Families with children are encouraged to attend to take part in this special observance.   Please sign up today on the poster in the narthex to give us an approximate head count. 


TODAY IS THE FINAL SUNDAY to receive the America for Christ Offering. Please help us reach our church goal of $2,675 in support of home mission across the United States and Puerto Rico. Gifts to date total $1,375. Envelopes are available at the Welcome Center and in sanctuary chair backs.


THIS IS THE FINAL DAY to order a lily or azalea to be placed in the sanctuary for Easter. Please use the order form from your church mailbox.  Extras are available at the Welcome Center.  You may also contact the church office.  Pricing and flower details are on the order form.


APRIL NEWSLETTERS are in church mailboxes and available for viewing on the church website, www.gbcbb.org.

TODAY IS THE YOUTH GROUP Adventure Hike and Picnic at Wissahickon Valley Park (weather permitting). We’ll depart from church after the worship service on the church bus with planned return to church around 4:00 P.M.  Bring money for a fast food picnic lunch.


OUR ANNUAL EASTER EGG HUNT is Saturday, April 15, starting at 10:30 A.M.  Toddlers through 5th graders are welcome to join the hunt fun including games, balloon art and face painting!  Don’t’ forget to bring your baskets!  We will need small individually wrapped candy, small toys, stickers, etc. to put in the plastic eggs. There is a bin in the narthex for your donations.


THANK YOU: Joan Frizzell and the Scharf family wish to thank the church family for all their kind expressions of sympathy on the recent passing of Virginia Parker.


NOTE FROM THE SEDOS: Hello, church family. We have been blessed and honored to have met amazing people at Grace Baptist Church. We wanted to let you know that our time to leave has arrived.  The church where we will be serving is closer to our home and near the Philadelphia area.  Although our announcement is sad, we are excited to see what God is doing next in our lives. We greatly appreciate Grace Baptist Church for helping Armando through the ordination process. Armando will be able to pastor and minister because God used Grace Baptist Church to make this possible. We will be still attending Presence small group until April 13, 2017.  We will hope to see many of you on Maundy Thursday. We will also be at Grace Baptist at Easter service to say good bye. Sincerely Armando, Jennifer, and Arnia Sedo.
