You read it right! We're planning ahead - FYI for next year. Every five years, GEFC encourages its members to read through the Scriptures in a year. Next year (2017) will be the next time. We will once again be usint "The One Year Chronological Bible", and in 2017 Pastor Ron will be preaching a chronological overview of the entire Word through the year. Hopefully this will be helpful in thinking about your devotional study for 2016.

The Food Closet is open the Friday following the third Tuesday every month. Donations of canned items, personal hygiene products, and household cleaning items are always appreciated. If you would care to donate any of these items, they can be left in the kitchen or call us and we will arrange to get them from you.
We can't thank the members of this congregation enough for their continued generosity and their donations of food and funds for the Food Closet, and we so appreciate our many faithful and hard-working volunteers. The Lord has truly blessed this ministry.
