“I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold,
all is vanity and a striving after wind”
Ecclesiastes 1:14

We are just a few days away from this year’s Grace Bible Conference which begins with supper Friday night at 5 PM. (See schedule below). This year’s theme will be “Joy in the Mist: The Message of Ecclesiastes.” Our teacher will be Brian Borgman, pastor of Grace Community Church of Minden, NV. Pastor Borgman will challenge us to consider how the message of Ecclesiastes intersects our lives and teaches us to find ultimate joy in the God who has made us for Himself rather that this temporary, fleeting world.

The schedule for this year’s conference is:

Friday, April 21
5:00 PM – Supper
6:00 PM Message #1 – Is Everything Really Meaningless? Part 1
7:30 PM Message #2 – Is Everything Really Meaningless? Part 2

Saturday, April 22
2:00 PM Message #3 – Everything is Merely Breath
3:30 PM Message #4 – All Things Beautiful in His Time
5:00 PM Supper
6:00 PM Hymn Sing
6:30 PM Message #5 – Challenges to Enjoying the Gift

Sunday, April 23
9:30 AM Message #6 – God of My Good Days and Bad
10:40 AM Message #7 – When the Gifts Slip Away

You can prepare for this year’s conference by doing the following:

  1. Be sure to register online. You can find the link at rockportbaptist.org/gbc
  2. Pray for Pastor Borgman and his wife, Ariel, as they travel and prepare.
  3. Ask the Lord to prepare our hearts and those of our children for His word.
  4. Read the book of Ecclesiastes this week. There are 10 chapters, if you read two chapters each day you can finish before the conference
  5. Plan on being here for every session if at all possible.

Looking forward to His blessing

Pastor Scott
