Parenting Workshop - Human Sexuality in the Public Domain - This Friday May 19th @7pm. Our kids hear lots of conflicting information about human sexuality through friends, social media, schools (whether public or private), and other influential voices. How can we support each other in raising kids that are well grounded in a biblical, grace filled perspective on human sexuality? Join us for an evening of conversation this Friday May 19th starting at 7pm.

Tintern Discernment Challenge - On Sunday Apr 23, during adult class we read from Acts 8:26-35 and discussed the practice of listening to God. Our challenge for the next few weeks is considering the questions: 
  • What are we hearing from God? 
  • What events or words are catching our "spiritual" attention? 
  • Where might we see God at work in our world? 
  • Where might we see God at work in our local community? 
We encourage you to consider these questions over the next few weeks. We'll have a chance in May to talk about this together.  

Friday Night Connect - We are rebooting Friday Night Connect!! It will be the 2nd Friday of every month. Our kickoff will be Friday, June 9th at Jas and Justine Mogford’s house. More information to come, but mark your calendars in the meantime!

Great Lakes Bible College - We hope you enjoyed our recent weekend seminar on apologetics with Chad Ramsey. It was an excellent learning opportunity with many challenges and encouragements for sharing the "hope that is in us."

We are happy to announce that the video recordings from the weekend are now available for viewing on our website. Unfortunately, the first lesson on Friday evening was not fully recorded, however all other lessons are present. Please feel free to share widely!

Additionally, in case you missed it, our end of term event—GLBC Connects, was held on Saturday, April 29 in Beamsville, ON. We were pleased to welcome a gathering of students, supporters, GLBC board members and staff. A recording of the event is also on our website.

A LOT of study, conversations and hard work went in to this past Sunday’s worship. We need to hear from our younger folk more often.


Ladies Prayer Group - Feel like you need a lift in the middle of the week? Why not join a group of ladies who meet each Wednesday morning at 10:00am to help fulfil that need. The ladies are presently meeting at the Tintern building. The agenda for now is reviewing the history of the songs which are so familiar to us and then looking at scripture to come alongside that song. Prayer needs are mentioned and a chain prayer is given. Even if you cannot attend every week, stopping by occasionally is also rewarding.
