This Sunday, we celebrated several of our fellow believers and their changed lives in Christ through baptism! Indian Hills Baptist Church and Grace Bible Fellowship gathered together to worship, hear the Word of the Lord, baptize the professing believers, and share a meal.

Congratulations to our young church member, Joelle, for graduating from the Grace Bible Fellowship youth service to the main service!
Please pray for this young lady as she hears the Word of the Lord preached, that she might know God and seek after Him with her whole heart.
July 27th was a special Sunday service for us; church member Tanner Thetford was deemed licensed to preach by the elders and pastor.
What does it mean to be licensed to preach?
After more than a year of preaching whenever asked to by Pastor Rod, Tanner was believed to be capable and gifted by God to preach the Word. This recognition of ability and calling by God demonstrates Grace Bible Fellowship's support of Tanner and his journey towards becoming a preacher.
Currently, Tanner is striving to pursue this passion by doing online coursework towards a Masters of Theological Studies through Reformed Theological Seminary. Please pray for him as he strives to seek after the Lord.
In September of 2012, Grace Bible Fellowship held a church barbeque at our pastor's home in Mule Creek, New Mexico. It had all the staples of a joyful gathering... dutch oven cooking, worship on the acoustic guitars, children exploring the creek, and a good old game of horse shoes.
There was many a conversation concerning our delight in the Lord as well as enduring through trials, encouraging us to seek Christ all the more. We'll be sure to do this again soon!
