GBC opened the doors for worship for the first time this morning. Seventy-six people were in attendance with visitors traveling from as far as Columbus, OH and Nashville, TN. The service was led by Larry Stanley and Kevin Greene gave the opening prayer. Mandy Day led the congregational singing and Sherry Lawrence played the piano. The church opened with the hymns “We Have Met to Worship” and “Nothing But the Blood.” “Amazing Grace” was played during our time of fellowship and “Just As I Am” was played at the close of service. Special songs were sang by the father-daughter duet of Larry Stanley and Mandy Day, as well as two songs by Colby Lykins. The message was given by Robie Day on Ephesians 2:1-10, entitled “By Grace Through Faith.”
We would like to thank everyone who was able to attend this morning, as well as everyone who contributed, in any way, to the opening of the church. We have been blessed with an overwhelming amount of support throughout this entire process. We are very thankful for each and every one of you and we look forward to seeing you all again very soon.
His and yours,
