CONTRIBUTION STATEMENTS FOR 2019 are available in the mailboxes in the main hallway across from the parlor.  Please help us save postage by picking up your statement by Sunday, January 26th.  Thank you.

CONTRIBUTION ENVELOPES FOR 2020 are available on the table near the Sunshine Classroom.  If you do not see a box with your name on it, but would like to have some, please see Vicki in the church office.


The City of Roanoke Contractors will begin the stormwater diversion project beginning in February and lasting until May.

Construction of a new pipeline to carry stormwater from the back parking lot to Brambleton Avenue will begin in front of the church and at the intersection of Brambleton and Spring street.  Spring street will be closed to traffic from February through March.  Construction will parallel Sweetbriar street between the street and our playground from March to April.  In April construction will occur in our parking areas on both sides of Sweetbriar street.  During this time our back parking area will be open but traffic will be routed to avoid construction.    — Building and Grounds Committee


All individuals involved in any part of the Youth and Children’s Ministry — nursery volunteers and Sunday School teachers — are required to attend a meeting after the 11:00 worship service on February 2nd.  A sandwich lunch with lemonade will be served.  For any questions or concerns contact Becky Owen, children@grandincourtbaptist.org or Melissa Kessler, students@grandincourtbaptist.org


Baptism classes will be held for any children interested in learning about baptism.  They will be held on March 1st, 8th, 15th, and 29th during the 11:00 worship time in Becky Owen’s office.  If you have questions, please email Becky at  children@grandincourtbaptist.org. Baptisms will occur on Easter Sunday.


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!


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.


Thank you all so much for your support of The Pantry throughout Advent! We raised over $4500 for summer missions and local partners! Be sure to be on the lookout and learning more of the ways our teams are working and getting ready so you can see just what you’re supporting. Your generous spirits are amazing!


On February 21st-22nd, we will hold our first Men’s Getaway! Details are being worked out, but we want you to mark your calendar and plan to spend an evening getting to meet and know the guys of GCBC! Registration and details coming soon!


Our MAC is hosting a plethora of basketball tournaments in 2020 and we are looking for help covering 2-hour shifts. For those who have ever been here during one of these tournaments, our MAC is alive with our community! Volunteers only need to be in the MAC lobby and help when needed to answer questions mostly about how to get down stairs and for some, where the elevator is. It really runs itself. Please email mac@grandincourtbaptist.com (Kelli Best) if you can donate your time.
