LifeQuest Studies The Reason for God (Tim Keller) Target Group: Co-Ed Dates: Jan. 13 - March 10 Leader: Scott Weeks E-Mail: scott_weeks@bellsouth.net Format: Discussion Cost: $15 When: Wed. at 6:15 pm - 7:30 pm Room: A-172 (Annex I) Keller mines material from literary classics, philosophy, anthropology and a multitude of other disciplines to make an intellectually compelling case for God. Written for skeptics and the believers who love them, the book draws on the author's encounters as founding pastor of New York's booming Redeemer Presbyterian Church. One of Keller's most provocative arguments is that all doubts are really a set of alternate beliefs. The first, shorter part of the book looks at popular arguments against God's existence, while the second builds on general arguments for God to culminate in a sharp focus on the redemptive work of God in Christ. Keller's condensed summaries of arguments for and against theism make the scope of the book overwhelming at times. Nonetheless, it should serve both as testimony to the author's encyclopedic learning and as a compelling overview of the current debate on faith for those who doubt and for those who want to re-evaluate what they believe, and why.

In fact, these may be the best days to proclaim Christ since the first century. This study will help you listen for, and hear, the master's voice even in the midst of chaos.

I plan to begin weekly Saturday Morning Runs/Walks at the Long Hunter State Park, Couchville Lake Path this week, at 7:30 am. We will include a short devotional time by the pier before we head out, and maybe meet for coffee and a bagel at Panera or Chick Fil A afterward to reward our hard work! 35

Preschool Ministry

Babies - Kindergarten

Our Mission: In the Bible, we are told to “train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.� (Proverbs 22:6) We support and encourage parents in nurturing and instructing their children in the Lord. Our purpose is to reach preschoolers and their families for Jesus Christ, building a caring relationship with them, and provide them with a strong spiritual foundation so they can grow into mature followers of Christ.

Child Safety & Security: Security for your child is a top priority at GBC. Children especially need to feel secure and loved in their environment. We have a security system in place anytime pre-schoolers are participating in church activities. Parents are also welcome to check in on their little ones at any time during a session. Silent pagers are also available upon request.

Children’s Ministry

1st Grade - 5th Grade

Our Mission: Children are precious to us, as they are to Christ. As ministers of Christ’s love, our prayer is that we may serve you and your family.

Child Safety & Security: Security for your child is a top priority at GBC. Children especially need to feel secure and loved in their environment. We have a security system in place anytime children are participating in church activities. Parents are also welcome to check in on their children at any time during a session (we ask you do so discreetly, however, so as not to disrupt), and to volunteer to be a part of their children’s activities.

Our children’s ministry at GBC exists to share Christ with the children of our community, team them with other Christians, advance them in their spiritual maturity, help them to recognize their spiritual gifts and to surrender their lives to God.

6th - 8th Grades

Our Mission: Today’s culture is force feeding a message that is being easily digested by teenagers and preteens: Truth is relative. Students today are ill equipped to look at the messages bombarding them from the media through the lens of a Christian worldview. The result? A belief that conflicting ideas can be equally true. As Christians, we know that to be false.

The student ministry at Gladeville Baptist Church works diligently against the “Truth is relative” mantra. Our programs are designed to equip students to sift through the changing messages of today’s pop culture. We believe firmly that Truth is not relative and that investing in students will inspire them to influence positive change in their culture rather than conforming to it.

Middle School Ministry Sunday Morning Groups

Wednesday Nights

9:15 am Bible Studies Where: The Premier Room

6:15 pm - 7:15 pm Worship Where: The Premier This is a worship opportunity for students, and usually where they walk through our door for the first time. We have a place for students to hang out with their friends over a coke or coffee, and there’s no pressure for them to do anything when they walk through the door. We play games, worship through music and other arts, and students hear a relevant message of Truth. The bounce-off-the-wall outgoing, the shy, quiet, and the more reserved teen, will all find a comfortable fit at either of these services.

We dig into God’s Word and apply it directly to ever-changing teen culture. Students and caring adults discuss parent relationships, peer pressure, friends,values, and boundaries all within the context of God’s perfect plan for their lives. We begin in The Premier Room and break out into smaller Bible Studies based on grade and gender.

Life Groups

7:15 pm - 7:45 pm Small Groups Where: The Premier Room

These are small that groups are gender specific and meet in 6-8 week intervals 4-6 times a year, typically on Sunday nights. We find that the absence of the opposite sex alleviates pressure and discussion barriers for guys and girls alike. We help them develop a deeper relationship with Christ and each other.

These groups are gender & age specific and meet weekly. The topics will be based on the Worship service and help them develop a deeper relationship with Christ. Missions Middle School students are encouraged to serve by participating in local missions and mission trips. Students who volunteer locally usually perform some type of service for the community or an individual. At least two are planned each year. 45
