Come pray for our Student Ministries Spectrum Team for when they go out on their mission trip & hear updates.
Calvin's (1509 - 1564) work was the clearest, most logical, and most readable exposition of Protestant doctrine that the Reformation age produced, and it gave its youthful author European fame overnight. Calvin labored on its elaboration nearly all his active life. Twenty years later it was a much larger work but its interpretation of Christian truth remained essentially the same.
Guest speakers: Drs. Paul and Virginia Friesen were married in 1976 and are the parents of three young women, two of whom are now married to wonderful, godly men. They have been involved in family ministries for over 35 years through family camps, church staff positions, speaking, consulting, and writing. In 2003, they founded Home Improvement Ministries (www.HIMweb.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to equipping individuals and churches to better encourage marriages and families in living out God's design for healthy relationships.
As the lead resource couple at Home Improvement Ministries, the Friesens regularly speak at marriage, men's, and women's conferences in the US and internationally, as well as local family and parenting seminars, and have an ongoing ministry with professional athletes. Paul and Virginia both have Doctorates in Marriage and Family Therapy from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
The Friesens have authored over ten books and curriculums on parenting and marriage, including Letters to My Daughters, In Our Image, Raising a Trailblazer, Before You Save the Date, and most recently, The Marriage App.
Paul and Virginia's greatest joy in life is knowing that their children are walking in the Truth.
Worship Leader: David Morgan
After growing up at Golden Hills, David studied music at Lee University in Tennessee. He vowed to never move back to California, but that vow was quickly broken after meeting Stephanie during a summer visit. They dated long distance for David's final year at school, and ultimately he returned to California. In 2003 they officially became "The Morgans" and began serving at a church in Tracy. In 2006 God called them back to Golden Hills where David currently serves as the Pastor of Worship Arts. They have a son, Mason who is 8, and a 4-year-old daughter, Eden.
Join us for our monthly Men's Breakfast. As a disciple, we are called to live a transformed life for the Lord, not one of mediocrity. Our very own GHCC Pastor of Global Outreach, Brian B. will be sharing what life looks like as one lives a "Lifestyle of an Evangelical Minded Servant" in the "Lifestyle of a Godly Man." You will want to be here, so be sure to invite a friend.
HEBREWS - The theme of Hebrews is the absolute supremacy and sufficiency of Jesus Christ as revealer and mediator of God's grace. Hebrews could be called "The book of better things," since the two words for "better" and "superior" occur 15 times in the letter. Come join us every Wednesday evening from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in W234/235 to expand your faith and knowledge of God's Word! http://www.goldenhills.org/connect/men/breakfast
As a body of women who worship and serve at Golden Hills, let's unify and commit to pray for Women's Ministries. Our desire is to glorify God, seek Him, present our requests, and celebrate His presence as He reveals Himself to us and moves us to His agenda. We'll do that through music, drama, testimony, Scripture, and a prayer calendar. Come join us for all this in fellowship and with coffee and breakfast. Prayer calendars are available at the Info Ctr.
The world around us needs the GOOD NEWS of Christ. You can contribute by hostessing a table at this year's Extravaganza. Come to our info evening for tips in engaging with your guests and all the practical aspects of being a hostess. Come buy your hostess tickets early. Table decoration door prizes too!
Margaret Feinberg will be speaking about her "Fight Back With Joy." Two years ago, those who were able to attend the CPW Women's Conference were delighted by our speaker Margaret Feinberg. She was in the midst of a life or death battle with cancer at the time and yet was such an inspiration with her "Wonderstruck" theme. Now she is back, cancer free, to speak on the topic "Fight Back With Joy." Margaret has been named one of the "30 Voices" who will help lead the church in the next decade by Charisma magazine, as well as one of the 50 women shaping the church and culture by Christianity Today. If you have not heard her speak, this conference is a must. Click on the following link to watch a short video about Margaret. https://player.vimeo.com/video/127185324
