Starting May 4th the Wednesday Night Welcome Table will be discussing Diana Butler Bass’s new book, Grounded: Finding God in the World-A Spiritual Revolution.
This new work by Bass is described as follows:

The distant God of conventional religion has given way to a more intimate sense of the sacred that is with us in the world. This shift, from a vertical understanding of God to a God found on the horizons of nature and human community, is at the heart of a spiritual revolution that surrounds us—and that is challenging not only religious institutions but political and social ones as well.


Grace Baptist Church of Richmond, Virginia is seeking a Minister to Youth and Their Families.  The minister will work to integrate fully youth and their families into the life and work of the church both within and outside its walls through spiritual formation, missions, relationship building, and worship. 

Grace Baptist is a progressive, welcoming and affirming congregation with a growing number of young people, for whom we hope to provide continued support and care as they grow in faith.  

Grace is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA, Alliance of Baptists, and River City Faith Network.

CAKE AUCTION

Sunday, May 15

Join us for lunch and the annual cake auction on Sunday, May 15. Proceeds from the auction will help 14 older elementary kids and youth attend Passport Camps this summer. Your generosity makes a huge difference because it makes camp a much more affordable option for our families.

You can help in two ways!

First, put on your creative baking hats and whip up something delicious to donate to the auction! Cakes are the most typical donation, but we've had candies, cookies, brownies, and even jam in the past-- the sky's the limit! If you like a baking challenge, consider making something our members on vegan, gluten free, or sugar free diets could bid on and enjoy. When you drop off your cake (or other yummy treats) in the Fellowship Hall, be sure to include a card that clearly states the name of the baker(s) and a description of your creation. This year we are also accepting single serving bagged goodies to offer to folks at a set price so everyone can go home with something deliciously sweet and homemade.

Second, join us for lunch and come hungry for dessert! This event is always a riot with lots of joy and celebration. We hope you'll join us for a good cause and some good fun! Sign up for lunch or to donate a cake on the hall table outside the church office. 

Contact Noell@gbconline.org with any questions.
