GGF News 7/31/2011

A couple of months ago we discussed the concept- “I don’t know what will make me happy”.  It seems a bit depressing- but it has actually brought me much freedom and peace.  It is reinforced in Acts 3. 1-16.  Check it out and join us this Sunday.
If you would like to talk further about any of these thoughts, I’d love to get together with you.  Please give me a call.

Golden Gate Fellowship supporters:

I wanted to share with you some good news about the financial state of GGF.  Through the end of July, we as a community are at a nearly break even point for the year.  This trend is a turn around from our giving in 2010, where we were loosing money at a fairly rapid pace.  Thank you for being faithful in you giving and support of Golden Gate Fellowship.  As always, anyone who would like a closer look at our finances, or would like to discuss in further detail, please feel free to contact me.

Spiritual Formation!

Jesus regularly took his disciples away from the busyness of their routine for a time of rest and renewal. Every third Saturday of the month we’ll gather for a focused time of prayer and reflection. Carve time in your busy routine to join Jesus and his friends for a few hours of respite and recharging. The theme is waiting, each month we’ll focus on a different promise we long to see fulfilled. Third Saturday, 9-noon, $20 per session. With you in the journey, Debby Bellingham  debbybell@comcast.net>
