SWITZERLAND MISSION TEAM NEWS

Your GCBC team has been invited to return as the kitchen crew to Euroventure Camp next summer! Not only have we been invited, we were told by the staff of the camp: “You’re one of us, you have to be here!” We have accepted that invitation and have already met to revise the menu and make plans for another blessed opportunity to support youth from all over the world as they seek Christ and grow in their relationships with God and one another. We are grateful for the generous support that GCBC has given us already and we hope you will begin praying for next summer now—for the kids who will choose to follow Christ, for the group leaders and the worship leadership. We have two opportunities for you to help: Switzerland Takeout lunch on October 27th and the Family Ornament Day at Glazed Bisque-It on Saturday, November 16th. If you have questions, you can ask any member of the team: Leigh Ann Murray, Ericka Lanier, David Fox, Sherrie Oliver, Ginny Ricotta and Melissa Fox.

Ladies, come join the fun as we get together for some pottery and/or fused glass class! You can choose from many different projects. Cost will range from $16 to $38 each, depending on which project you select. The shop requires 20 participants to reserve the space just for us, so let me know by October 20th if you plan to join in the fun. Goodies will also be served! – Melissa Fox

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

FAMILY ORNAMENT DAY AT GLAZED BISQUE-IT
Saturday, November 16th

Come as an individual or as a family to make Christmas gifts or decor for your own tree! Mark your calendar and plan to attend. Specific costs will be included in next Sunday’s insert. This event is being hosted by your Switzerland Mission Team.

Also, on October 27th, we will be offering baggies of Boo Bark for Halloween. This festive treat features milk chocolate bark with googly eyes, candy corn and various yummies. Come by and get yours at our Takeout Station in the MAC lobby immediately following each worship service.

EVERLASTING LIGHT CHRISTMAS CHOIR

Rehearsals begin for this year’s cantata on Wednesday, October 9th. Please join us in the choir room at 7:30pm. Our cantata will be presented on Sunday, December 8th, at 6:30pm. Youth and adults are encouraged to participate. Our children will be preparing their songs on Sunday mornings.

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

PRAYER BREAKFAST

We believe that God hears and answers prayer and we would love to have you come join us on Monday mornings at 7:00am at the Hardee’s down the street from the church.

We are done by 7:30am as we all have to rush off to work. Hope you will come join us on Monday.  – Brad Brewer

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

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
The programming schedule at GCBC (including MAC activities) during times of inclement weather shall follow the Roanoke City Public Schools’ cancellation schedule.  Please be sure to listen to your local TV and radio stations for any cancellations or delays of services or activities.
