- PRAYER | GCC
Prayer Why do we pray? In Galatians, we are called to "bear on another's burdens," and one of the ways we can practically do this is through prayer. We want to partner with you as you seek the Lord's will in whatever circumstance. Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. - Galatians 6:2 NEED PRAYER? REQUEST IT HERE Lift others up in prayer. Join the prayer chain. One way we can encourage each other is to pray specifically for each other's needs. If you are a member or regular attender at GCC we invite you to join our prayer chain. JOIN THE PRAYER CHAIN

- STATEMENT OF FAITH | GCC
STATEMENT OF FAITH Statement of Faith 1. We believe the sixty-six books of the Bible to be the only inspired, authoritative Word of God, inerrant in the original manuscripts. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21) 2. We believe that there is one God , the Creator, eternally existent in three Persons–Father, Son and Holy Spirit–each having the same essence and attributes. (2 Corinthians 13:14; Matthew 28:19) 3. We believe that Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man in indivisible union. We believe in His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary atonement through His shed blood, His death and bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His future bodily return in power and glory. (John 1:1,14; Philippians 2:6-8; 1 Timothy 3:16; Revelation 19:11-16; I Corinthians 15:1-8) 4. We believe the Holy Spirit convicts of sin, regenerates, indwells, baptizes and seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, filling them as they yield to Him with the goal of conforming them to the image of Christ. (Titus 3:5; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 12:13; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18) 5. We believe salvation is a gift of God received through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone and His sacrifice for sin. We believe that a person is justified by grace through faith apart from works and that all true believers have eternal life. Saving faith includes repentance, which is a change of mind about sin and the need for Jesus as Savior. (Ephesians 2:8-9; John 3:16; I John 5:10-13; Mark 1:15) 6. We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the Body of Christ of which He is the Head. (Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:19-22) 7. We believe that water baptism and the *Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation. (Acts 8:12; 1 Corinthians 11:23-28) 8. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting glory in heaven with God and the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment in hell apart from God. (2 Thessalonians 1:9; Revelation 22:3-5, 20:15; Daniel 12:2) *Communion is open to all who have trusted Christ as Savior whether members of Grace or not and is observed on the first Sunday of each month.
- Whitworth | GCC
Lee Whitworth Biblical Ministries Worldwide Phone: 770-339-3500 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Facebook Page Address: Biblical Ministries Worldwide 1595 Herrington Rd Lawrenceville, GA 30043-5616 Birthday: June 4 Mission Focus Lee serves with Biblical Ministries Worldwide sharing the gospel in Mormon communities in Utah. For many years, Lee served as pastor of Payson Bible Church and more recently as the Field Leader for the Utah/Idaho region. Currently his ministry also includes working on field policies, recruiting ministry leaders, preaching, and writing. His wife and ministry partner, Diana, passed in January 2022 and Lee is adjusting to ministry without her wisdom and communication. We praise God for Lee’s strong faith and his commitment to continue ministry. Pray for Lee and his eight adult children as the family continues to adjust to life without Diana. Testimony Lee's Testimony As a child my parents took us to a liberal church. My older brother grew restless and sought out a Bible-teaching church. At the age of nine I heard the gospel and approached the pastor about being saved. By God's grace He has held me through days of obedience and rebellion, complacency and devotion. I have been given grace and blessings entirely out of proportion to my sin and dullness. I studied music at Grand Rapids School of the Bible & Music with primary focus on Bible. I have served in churches in Missouri, California, and Utah. Diana and I were married in 1983 and have eight children. Update: Diana Jean Whitworth entered the joy set before her on January 8, 2022, after a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Please join Grace Community Chapel in praying for Diana's family during this difficult time. The family asks that instead of flowers, charitable gifts would be designated to Provo Bible Church for the church's evangelistic outreach ministry.

Steve & Nancy Huerd Cru Phone: 888-278-7233 Website: cru.org Address: Cru 100 Lake Hart Drive Orlando, FL 32832 Birthday: Steve: September 25 Nancy: January 31 Mission Focus Nancy labors to confirm that those wishing to join us within Cru are qualified and well prepared to be missionaries. Not everyone who applies is ready or even called to become a full-time missionary with Cru and Nancy meticulously evaluates applications and candidates ensuring Cru is a good fit for them. She also works diligently to confirm our staff serve in the best possible assignments, both short-term and long-term, for their own growth and development as well as to reach students for Christ all over the world. Steve is the director of Ministry Partner Development for the High School Ministry, ensuring that all staff are fully funded. He also serves in theological development, teaching Bible classes to our new staff and assisting the field ministry, providing help and resources for thorny ethical issues. We are both blessed to serve our staff nationally in many places. If you could pray one thing for us, it would be for wisdom and servant hearts to love and care for all of our High School staff. Testimony Steve's Testimony Growing up in Minnesota, Steve's family ceased attending church during his elementary school years causing him to become a genuine seeker of the truth. During his sophomore year in high school, Steve became a Christ-follower as the result of a large outreach presented by Student Venture (Cru’s High School Ministry). He became a student leader in this movement reaching many of his peers with the gospel. In college, Steve was very involved with Cru at St. Cloud State University (St. Cloud, MN) and joined Cru full-time in 1988. Because God had changed his life so much, instinctively Steve knew God had called him to join Cru even before graduating from high school. Nancy's Testimony Nancy grew up in a Christian home in northeast Missouri, attending church functions regularly but it didn’t really impact her life until her junior year of high school when her team lost the Missouri basketball championship. Through the help of some of her friends, she realized the emptiness of worldly achievements and asked Christ to come into her life. During her college days at the University of Missouri, she played basketball and was very active in Campus Crusade for Christ, the former name of Cru. Through her involvement in Cru, she was able to share Christ with most of her teammates and lead several Bible studies. Eventually she became connected and plugged into the local high school ministry while teaching and coaching at a St. Louis area high school. Sensing God’s call on her life not merely to teach and coach, but to be a full-time missionary, she joined Cru full-time. Her first assignment was in Minnesota where she met Steve.

- GRACE STUDENTS | GCC
Grace Students Presenting Students Mature in Christ Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. - Col 1:28 Maturity in Christ means Christlikeness. We value Christlikeness in all areas of life which we've summed up in four words: Humility : "It's not about me." We are dedicated to teaching students to deny themselves, pick up their cross daily, and follow Jesus. (Philippians 2:1-11) Hospitality : "It's about them." We are dedicated to teaching students to behave in such a way that every stranger can be treated like a neighbor. (Luke 10:25-37) Love: "It's about 'us'." We are dedicated to teaching students to think with a "we first" mentality, not a "me first" mentality. To participate in youth group and to encourage others before trying to be encouraged themselves. (John 13:34) Devotion: "It's about Him." We are dedicated to teaching students not merely about God, but to know God and how to seek Him out for the rest of their lives. Our goal is not to just give information about God, but to build lifelong disciples.

Biblical counseling* is available for youth, adult men, or married couples. Youth counseling will be done with another person in the room (who will be held to confidentiality standards) for accountability purposes. What to Expect Biblical Counseling is counseling that is directly centered and focused on the Bible to deal with the issues of life. Its focus is discipleship and heart change as developed through obedience to and understanding better God’s word. Ultimately, the goal is to help you respond to your life circumstances in a way that will please God. The underlying assumption is that God’s word truly is sufficient for life and godliness. Biblical counseling is meant to teach you to live a godly life in response to any life circumstances you may be going through. Everything will be held in strict confidence, except where, in the counselor’s judgment, there is a biblical and/or legal requirement to involve others (e.g. criminal activity). Counseling can be for grief, sexual sin, addictions, marital problems, depression, etc. *Counselor is not licensed or certified as a psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, mental health professional, marriage and family therapist, or social worker, and is not acting in such capacities.
