Pastor Search Committee Update
After much prayer and consideration, Kyle Roach has not felt led to come in view of a call. He and his wife wanted to be a part of this community and he said he would have loved to pastor our church; however, they feel God has plans for them to serve elsewhere. Please continue to pray fervently for the pastor search committee and the man God has chosen to be our next pastor. We know his plan and timing are perfect, and we will continue to move forward in his guidance. Staying diligent in prayer is the most important thing we can do.

Valentine’s Day-February 14th
Valentine's day can create a variety of emotions for different people. For some, it creates great satisfaction celebrating the love you have between you, your spouse, and your friends & family. For others, it can cause feelings of loneliness. Whether you are single or in a relationship, let this Bible verse encourage you to celebrate, for God has an unconditional and indescribable love for us. No matter your age or stage in life, Valentine's Day can be celebrated because of God's great love.
“To love him with all your heart, with all your understanding, and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself is more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.”  
Mark 12:33

GVBC Facebook Page
Gila Valley has set-up a Facebook page to help get information out to all the members.  The page will have administrators that will approve members and comments to the site. 
You can search for the page under 
Gila Valley Baptist Church 
or click the link under the Information/Links page above. 
 If you have any questions, please see 
Brenda or Tommye.
Like any organization, a church needs a way to get in touch with its congregation quickly in the event of an emergency or just for quicker, easier form of communication.  Not everyone makes it to Sunday services to hear our announcements or read our bulletin.  DialMyCalls can be used for numerous announcements and to specific groups within the church. Within just a few minutes our entire church family receives a message and becomes immediately informed. As announcements need to be made, will be used.  If you have any questions, visit with Brenda.
