GBCC DIGITAL BULLETIN

Green Bay Community Church is a non-denominational group of Christ followers and a transforming community of families that are loving God and others. We are mobilizing people to share the hope of Jesus Christ with all people in the Green Bay area and walk with them as they become a member of the spiritual family, the Church.

Our regular Sunday summer schedule continues on Sunday, August 21, with breakfast served at 8:30 am followed by our worship service at 9:30 am. Pastor Troy Murphy will continue in a sermon series entitled "A Wide Open Table." You can watch Community Update here to find out more about the three-week series.

Breakfast on Sundays during the summer includes yogurt, an oatmeal bar, boiled eggs and coffee. 

 

Here is a comprehensive look at the events and happenings at GBCC:

New Sunday morning schedule starts Sept. 11

Starting on Sunday, Sept. 11 we will transition to a new fall schedule at GBCC that will include two worship services and a hot, delicious breakfast in-between. We are excited to provide this opportunity for growth, both in numbers and connection with others. 

The fall schedule will look like this:

8 am -- First worship service

9 am -- Breakfast in the auditorium

10 am -- Second worship service

We strongly encourage you to make breakfast part of your Sunday worship experience. We believe that connecting with others is an integral part of the local church. So if you decide to attend our worship service at 8 am, stay afterward and meet up with new and old friends alike. If you attend the 10 am worship service, we ask you to consider enjoying fellowship over breakfast at 9 am prior to the worship gathering.

In addition, we also would like you to consider serving during the time you aren't attending a worship service. If you aren't serving during the week, this would provide a great opportunity to share your God-given talents in the  body of believers. There are a number of serving roles on Sunday, including Children's Ministry, greeting, preparing breakfast, and more.

We hope you take advantage of the chance to get more involved in the local church by worshipping, connecting and serving with others on Sundays.
