COLLEGE LUNCH: TODAY, August 25th, is our first College Lunch for the 2019-2020 school year. College students please bring your friends and join us in the upstairs fellowship hall right after the worship service for food and fellowship. Hosts of this lunch are the GABC staff and elders and their spouses.

HOSPITALITY WORKSHOP #3:  On September 1 at 9:00 AM during the Foundations hour in the Sanctuary we will have our final installment of our hospitality workshops. This last workshop will focus on developing a culture of grace in our small groups. This is also the theme for our small groups for our 2019-2020 year of small groups. We hope you will attend and prepare for the upcoming year of small groups. You will enjoy some wonderful fellowship and a light breakfast as well as meet our small group leaders and hear a testimony of the importance of gospel-community.
