Well we’re back in Level 4 which means going on hold with some things. So unless there is a move back to Level 1 this Sundays service will be on our website at www.gorebaptist.org

We will continue our Message Series called “Dear God”, and we’re trying to get things up for Kids Church & JYGs.

Remember to stay connected during this time, contact those who might be isolated, and continue to trust our God who sees this all happening, who cares for us and fills us with hope and peace.

Thank you for your on-going support, we love our GBC family and continue to pray that Gods plan for our church flourishes as we continue to navigate what is before us, together.

We look forward to connecting with you, somewhere, this Sunday.

We’re raising money to help stop the biggest hunger crisis of our lifetime through the World Vision 40 Hour Famine.

The fall-out of COVID-19 is compounding the damage that extreme poverty, climate change and decades of conflict have already done to children’s lives and futures in sub-Saharan Africa. Right now, millions of children are facing a hunger pandemic that is pushing them further into poverty, right to the edge of starvation.

This is our moment to help shape history. We will not stand by and watch the hunger pandemic happen.

Please help us take action to stop the hunger pandemic by donating through the ‘Give now’ at this link:

[06/24/21]   Join us in prayer for the family and friends of Margaret Phillips as we honour and celebrate her life today. Margaret’s funeral is at Mataura Presbyterian Church at 11:30 this morning. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8. What a beautiful promise we have that we will meet again one day....love to all who ache in the waiting.

Getting to know:
LALOGI-LAKWANA

POPULATION: 30,000
VILLAGES: 41

Lalogi-Lakwana is a community in northern Uganda, where most families grow their own food, but harvests are never enough for three meals a day.

Child sponsorship is helping to tackle three challenges facing children in Lalogi-Lakwana:
- Quality of education is an issue. Only 38% of students in grade 6 can understand what they read.
- Families struggle to provide three meals a day for their children.
- Kids don't feel safe and many are vulnerable to violence and early marriage.

By sponsoring children in the Lalogi-Lakwana community, through #Chosen, your members will make an incredible difference in vulnerable children’s lives by addressing the root causes of poverty. World Vision New Zealand

“Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? And, “If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?” So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭4:12-19‬ ‭NIV‬‬
