Summer 2010

fromwebLaunching Grace of Rancho:
Individual & Group Mission Teams

In the summer of 2010, it’s time to spread the word on the streets of Rancho Cucamonga as we prepare for the launch of Grace Bible Church in August. Would you consider coming yourself, with your family, or with a group to help us spread the gospel and spread the word about GBC Rancho?

Timing
Canvassing teams would be most helpful in July or August. June and September would also be possibilities. Lord willing, GBC’s first service will be in August or early September of 2010. If you are starting to consider particular dates, please contact us right away so that we can pencil you into the schedule (email us here).

Spreading the Word
What exactly are we doing to spread the word? We’ll be working our way through the neighborhoods of Rancho, distributing gospel literature (tracts, New Testaments, etc.) and information about the new church. There are 170,000 people packed into a pretty compact area of diverse neighborhoods, so we can use lots of help.

Activities
You can spend your entire time here working hard spreading the word about the new church – but we recommend that you leave some time to enjoy Southern California and get a glimpse of the magnitude of the needs here! You can come canvass for two weeks, or just come on a family vacation and help us for one day. For more information about suggested activites in Southern California, go here.

Cost
Because we do not yet have an established church in Rancho, we are not able to provide lodging or meals for you. With airfare, a rental car, and hotel accomodations, trip costs could easily be $500 or more per person. We’ll do everything we can to help you get the best deals: for tips on traveling to Rancho, go here.
There may be a small number of private homes available to provide lodging for a few of you. Contact us for more information.

Weather
It’s pretty hot in Rancho Cucamonga in July and August, with an average high temperature of 90 degrees. You’ll want to bring light clothes and plenty of sunscreen and plan to drink lots of water. But “it’s a dry heat.” : – )
