GBC Supports Operation Christmas Child
Each year Samaritan’s Purse collects literally millions of shoeboxes full of toys, candy, hygiene products and other treasures and distributes them to needy children in countries all over the world at Christmas time. The ladies of our Tuesday Bible Study are rejoicing that God provided enough for them to fill and ship a total of 49 shoeboxes to delight children’s hearts this November! They’ll even be able to track them and see in what countries they wind up! Click the picture to learn more about Operation Christmas Child and how you can be involved!
GBC And The Ebola Crisis
The epicenter of the ebola crisis in Africa is Liberia, particularly the captiol city of Monrovia. Glenside Bible Church is involved in fighting this deadly plague through our missionary partner Yallah Kawala and his small congregation, By The Light Ministries. Having received training from the World Health Organization, Yallah and leaders from his church are reaching out to neighborhoods and going to villages outside the city to educate people about ebola, how it is transmitted and how to prevent its spread, in spite of the personal danger it places them in. We are standing with them in prayer and financial support. To see pictures and videos of the team in action CLICK HERE. If you would like to donate to this effort online using Paypal, you can CLICK HERE. Please commit to praying with us daily for this awful plague to be brought to an end.
