Light Up The Night


On October 31st, we are hitting the streets to light up the night! The GBC family will engage people in our neighborhoods and foster relationships in order to share the love and light of Jesus Christ.  After all, it is the one night of the year when the world comes to your door!

“For you were formerly darkness,
but now you are light in the Lord; 
Walk as children of light.” 

Ephesians 5:8

Will your family light up the night?  Will you let your light shine in your neighborhood on October 31st?

Student Fall Retreat


November 2-3 | The Grove at Red Oaks
Cost: $40

Fall Retreat will be filled with restful and restorative moments of growth within the body of Christ through worship, fellowship, and the Word. Joining us will be our speakers, Luke and Caroline Saunders, and the band, Sow and Tether. This is a weekend your student will not want to miss!

Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
Philippians 1:27 (NASB)

As our church enters a season of renewed faith and Spirit, we feel a strong pull toward strengthening the bonds of the Church. The Fall Retreat will be an additional opportunity for students to experience revival through the building of unity within the Student Ministry. Students are beginning to see the majesty of a deeply threaded gospel message lived out by Jesus. Our hope is that the students will begin to live out this beautiful true story by imitating the Savior in their own faith journey. The beauty of the Christian walk is that the Father has given us a community of believers to renew our strength by encouraging and to walking alongside us.

Fresh Grounded Faith

This event is completely sold out!

The Fresh Grounded Women's Conference is November 16 & 17 at Central Church. This conference features Jennifer Rothschild, Lysa TerKuerst, and Karen Abercrombie ("Miss Clara from The War Room.) Early bird tickets are available now through September 24 for $40 by registering online or by calling the Women's Ministry office at 901.260.5763.

Imagine learning Scripture and being able to make it real in your life. Imagine joining with hundreds of women reaching out and up to the God who loves you and singing your heart out or just sitting in quietness before Him.   

Imagine that it doesn’t matter who you are, where you’ve been, how much you weigh, what you’re wearing, where you worship or what you’ve done. Imagine that you experience love, hope, and acceptance in a grace-filled zone.

If you can imagine that all that is possible, then you can imagine what a Fresh Grounded Faith Conference feels like!

FREE Movie Night


Join us for a free movie night for the whole family. We will be showing the film "I Can Only Imagine". Admission is FREE and all ages are welcome. We'll serve nachos in a bag as well as other snacks and drinks. Lines open at 5:30p.m., movie begins at 6:00 p.m. 


It’s the song that brings ultimate hope to so many … often in the midst of life’s most challenging moments. Amazingly, the song was written in mere minutes by MercyMe lead singer Bart Millard. In reality, those lyrics took a lifetime to craft.

Although he found faith at a young age, life wasn’t easy for Bart. He leaned into an active imagination and his love of music as escapes from a troubled home life. As he grew older, Bart turned to football in hopes of somehow connecting with his abusive father. But a career-ending injury—combined with the vision of a teacher who saw unlimited potential—set Bart on a musical pathway.

Chasing a dream while running from broken relationships with his father and Shannon, his childhood sweetheart, Bart hits the road in an old, decrepit tour bus with his new band MercyMe—named for his grandmother’s favorite expression. With the guidance of a grizzled music-industry insider, the band begins a journey none of them could ever have imagined.

Directed by the Erwin Brothers (October Baby, Moms' Night Out, and Woodlawn), I CAN ONLY IMAGINE stars J. Michael Finley, Madeline Carroll, Trace Adkins, Priscilla Shirer, with Cloris Leachman and Dennis Quaid.

A gripping reminder of the power of forgiveness, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE beautifully illustrates that no one is ever too far from God’s love—or from an eternal home in Heaven.

Focus: Belize - Interest Meeting


Wednesday, May 23 | 6 p.m. | The Parlor

We are holding an interest meeting for those who might have the interest and availability to join us in the mission work in Belize. Please join us for a short presentation and a time for asking questions.

As a church, we believe God has called us to reach the people of Belize. Over the last few years we've seen the Lord place strategic partners in our path that will provide the connection we need to spread the Gospel there. The GBC Advancing Committee, as well as Pastor Charles and our pastoral staff, have embraced this poor country as a target for Gospel ministry that we feel our church is equipped to carry out.

If you have a heart to see people reached for christ and discipled in a place with very little church involvement, we would love for you to consider getting involved. But there are other practical skills needed for our work there as well. Things like construction experience, retail, medical, sports, entertainment, organization. All types of gifts and skill sets will be utilized on our teams.
