Men of Grace, we would love to have you join us for an evening devoted to guys being guys! The purpose of this night is to foster relationships among our men through food, fun, and a short devotional. Our first get-together will be Friday, July 17, at 5:00 pm at Dan Jackson's house (3600 Ave 408, Kingsburg). Burgers will be provided; please bring a side to share. This is also a great time to bring a friend. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are thrilled to be welcoming Derek and Tanna Marks to our church body here at GCV! They are moving to Kingsburg from Bozeman, Montana, in order for Derek to receive pastoral training through the combination of The Master's Seminary distance location and being involved in the life and ministry of the body of GCV. The Marks family will be arriving on Saturday, July 18, and will be moving into their new home. If you'd like to help with the moving process, please be in touch with Matt Thibault at email@example.com.
The Change 4 Babies campaign is a fundraiser to support the Fresno Pregnancy Care Center. Pick up a baby bottle on Sunday or pick one up at the church office during the week. Take the bottle home and fill it with change, bills, or checks and bring the bottles back before Sunday, July 19.
Christian Education Fund
This fund is designed to encourage church members to further their education at approved Christian institutions of higher education. If you would like to give toward this fund, write “Christian Education Fund” in the memo line, or you can give online at gcv.ccbchurch.com/goto/giving.

Applications for next school year are due July 20 and will be awarded based on the fund balance as of July 20.
