Hello, church family. We have been praying and planning, and the big day is upon us. On Sunday, the Southern Baptists of Texas Bible Conference and Annual Meeting begin. Many of you have signed up to volunteer and I am grateful for you. The theme of the conference and meeting is the Holy Spirit. My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will be acknowledged and worshipped and that He speaks to all who attend. My heart especially goes out to all the pastors and wives who will be on our campus these three days. As I mentioned Sunday, please be sensitive to these guests. As the Holy Spirit leads you, take a moment to introduce yourself as a member of GHBC, offer to pray for them, and then bless them with a monetary gift. A couple of times during the Bible Conference I will ask all pastors to stand. When they stand make note of where they are, and when God gives the opportunity, bless them.
Becky Dean has planned a meeting for all in our church interested in our UUPG in South Asia. We will meet in the Patio Café in building A on Sunday, November 20, immediately after worship. We will have lunch and hear testimonies from Great Hills members who have been on mission to help reach our people group. God is working and we look forward to sharing with you. You can RSVP online. If you have any questions, please contact Becky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our annual Harvest Offering Sunday will be November 20. Each year on the Sunday before Thanksgiving we take up a special offering to help our church catch up on our giving-to-spending. At this time of year we are behind in giving, but with a strong Harvest Day and end-of-year giving, by God’s grace, we will catch up. Please be praying about what God would have you give on this special day of giving.
Have a blessed weekend. Please come to as much of the Bible Conference and Annual Meeting as you can and invite someone to join you. I will see you there.
