Dear GCBC Parents:

Where does our hope lie? We as believers don’t place our hope in this world but in the promises of God, especially his promise of an eternal future with him in his Kingdom. Jason will be preaching from Hebrews 6:13-20 on Sunday where we are told that this hope is an anchor for our souls.

I pray you take the opportunity to talk with your children about hope and how we are called to wait patiently for our hope to be fulfilled. This is a great time to once again share the gospel with your children and how faith in Jesus leads us to hope in our faithful God.

God Bless,
