For those of you keeping track at home, we have passed the halfway point of Marc Rader’s long service leave. Although the team miss Marc around the office, I think we can all agree that they are all doing an incredible job in his absence, and I would ask that you continue to pray for our leaders as they serve the church in this season. All reports of Marc are that he is enjoying his time off and living out his best ice hockey career, so pray for protection that he will return to us in one piece.

We are excited to say that the final donations for May Mission Month have been received and counted. This Sunday in our services we will be announcing the final total. We would love to have you join us, either online or onsite, as we celebrate the provision of God as we seek to partner in his ongoing work around the world.

Finally, can I remind you of our Mid-Year Meeting on 3 July. This is an opportunity for the leaders of the church to share where we are up to as a community. There are a number of ministries that we will be providing updates on as well as a number of projects that are in the pipeline. So, for anyone who calls GBC their home, whether a member or not, we would love for you to participate in this part of community living as we reflect on what has been, and look forward to where we are going.
