Message from Dr. Fallen

Thank you for your warm welcome on January 6!  I am very grateful for your affirmation and am privileged for the opportunity to serve alongside you as your pastor. One of the best ways for me to begin to get to know you is to learn your names and faces. I encourage you to drop me an email with a picture of your family unit and tell me a fun fact about what your family did over Christmas. You can reach me at See you in February!  Dr. Melissa Fallen.

April Ball Night at GABC!

On Wednesday, January 9th, 2019, our program will be a tribute to April Ball. As you know, April went to be with the Lord a little over a year ago, but her legacy lives on and all of the lives she has touched over the years. We are honoring her this night as we will rename the GABC Youth Room.  April spent countless hours with the youth on mission trips, bible studies, Sunday School, feeding the homeless, fun activities, weekend retreats, and more.  Please make every effort to attend this special night as we honor April. Put the date on your calendar and please help spread the word to others who may want to attend.

This Sunday – December, 16th!

The following is a special message from B.J.:

This Sunday is a special Sunday as we host our annual Christmas Cantata during the Worship Service.  In addition, the Children’s Christmas Nativity Play that was supposed to be last week will now take place this Sunday.  All children who are in the play are asked to be in the Sanctuary at 9:15 AM on Sunday to practice.  If these events do not get you in the Christmas spirit, then I don’t know what will!  I hope to see you there as we celebrate the birth and the coming back of Jesus Christ.  God Bless.
