A Big GP Thank You!

Posted by Sally Bland on

Thank you, Greater Portland Bible Church, for coming together over the last two weeks to remember and celebrate how God is working through our Global Partners! I was inspired to hear how God is moving around the world and enjoyed the opportunity to fellowship and pray for our Global Partners. God is inviting us to be a part of how He is working in Portland and around the world. We join in through prayer, financial support, and serving alongside our Global Partners.

I hope that you received the 2023-24 Global Partners booklet during our GP Emphasis. If not, then there are copies available at the Global Partners counter in the lobby. Be sure to also check back at the GP counter each month for updated prayer request lists.

At GPBC, the Global Partner budget is separate from the church operation budget. We financially support our Global Partners through pledges from our church family. This year, the Global Partners Team set a goal to raise $190,000 in pledges. This will allow us to give our Global Partners a slight increase in financial support during the 2023-24 fiscal year. Thank you to everyone who turned in their pledges! So far, we have received about 30% of the pledges needed to meet our goal. We want everyone in our community to participate in the support of our Global Partners. If you have not responded, then we ask you to prayerfully consider turning in a pledge by May 28.

You can turn in pledge cards on Sunday morning with the offering, in the GPBC app, or online. Please remember that these pledges are for July 2023 through June 2024, so contributions toward new pledges should be made after June 30, 2023.

Thank you church family for loving our Global Partners! It is an honor to answer God’s invitation together as we help every nation know Jesus by supporting the ministries of our Global Partners!
