Our last Takeout Lunch will be on June 30th. Please see the order form in this Sunday’s insert.  Also, we have put up a giving wall in the hallway next to the elevator. Envelopes of various amounts are there for you to detach, insert cash or check, and turn into the office. If we get all the envelopes taken, and our takeout lunch provides close to the same as it has before, our airfare and train tickets to and from camp will be covered.

If you’re interested in knowing more, you can check out the Euroventure website at: https://ibc-churches.org/building-connections/youth. Plus, you can grab any one of the mission team members and we can tell you a great story!

************************************************************************

MISSION OPPORTUNITY IN INDIA
The Seekers Sunday school class has been sponsoring the continuing education of four children in India through the supervision of Pastor Leivon Y. Kom since the need was brought to our attention by our former custodian, Jesse Taylor. Pastor Kom recently told our class that he needs to construct two churches at a cost of $4000 each, as his congregations have no place to gather for worship and asked us for donations. If you would like join us in making contributions, make a check out to GCBC, account 8430.  If you have any questions, see Jim Edgell or Ed Murray.

************************************************************************

BARNABAS PARTNER LUNCHEON

************************************************************************

PLEASE NOTE:  If you wish to reserve the MAC, please use extension 120 and leave a message or email mac@grandincourtbaptist.org (Kelli Best).  Kelli will get back with you as soon as she can.

************************************************************************

Upper Room Devotional Books are available in the racks along with the bulletins and outside the Church Office.  

************************************************************************

TOURS OF THE CHURCH OFFERED
Are you new to Grandin Court?  Or have you been attending, but still need help finding your way around?  Susanna Hart has offered to give tours of the church. If interested, please meet her at the front of the sanctuary following each worship service.

************************************************************************

10% IS ALL IT TAKES! Our giving to both the operating budget and the building fund supports missions here in the church, throughout the community, and the world. To fully support our budget and missions requires an extra effort on all our parts. Just a 10% increase in giving is all it takes. That’s less than a latte a week!

************************************************************************

HAVE YOU BOUGHT YOUR BRICK?  Our plan to landscape the area outside the MAC to add engraved bricks on the sidewalk, a dedication marker for the MAC, and a decorative wall are coming along. Your brick can remember a loved one, honor a friend or family member, and more. Check out the big brick in the MAC lobby for a picture of the planned project. You can buy your bricks online by going to the church website and selecting “Buy Your Brick Now!” You will then be able to select your brick, add designs, engraving and more, as well as pay for it by credit card or by a check placed in the offering. If you are online challenged, please call David Topping at 556-6459 or Pete File at 293-9105 for help.

************************************************************************

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
