THIS IS THE LAST SUNDAY we will be collecting the One Great Hour of Sharing Offering.  This vital offering is used by our denomination to meet critical needs in response to disasters here in the United States and around the world.  Gifts to date total $1,467.  We still have a ways to go to reach our church’s goal of $2,375, so we really need your help!  OGHS envelopes are available in the chair racks and at the Welcome Center.  Please give generously this Sunday and help us reach our goal!  It will make a difference!


ARE YOU SIGNED UP FOR VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL YET?  All children ages 3 through those who’ve finished 5th grade are welcome to enjoy VBS fun Friday, July 28-Sunday, July 30.  Bring your children and grandchildren – invite your friends and neighbors!  We’ll learn how God built YOU for a purpose!  Sign up with Casey Brookes (cbrookes@gbcbb.org).  Adults, let Casey know if you can help with VBS and look at the board in the narthex for items you can donate.


THE JULY NEWSLETTER is in church mailboxes this morning and available for viewing on the church website, www.gbcbb.org.
