Have you been coming to Glen Ellyn Bible Church on Sundays for a little while and you’re wondering, “What’s Next?” Well, you’re not alone, each week people ask this question, and the truth is there are TONS of ways you can take the next step at GEBC and get more plugged into our community of faith. See below for our list of ways you can get involved today.
Join An Encounter Group
Learning and growing is best done with a group of people. We believe one of the primary ways we are shaped is through living life with groups of other caring individuals. Encounter groups are spaces especially geared for people new to the church or those who want to try a small group experience. These groups are short-term commitments that meet over four weeks at homes in our community. Groups run from the week of April 16-May 7.Click Here to Register

LEARN & GROW IN A SMALL GROUP
Small groups are leader-led, multigenerational groups that are open to new people being added regularly. Our groups meet weekly to encourage one another and grow in devotion to Jesus. By joining a group, members commit to growing spiritually and to investing in the lives of others in the group. We have different types of groups – mixed, men’s, and women’s – but all include study, prayer, and opportunities to live out their faith together. Follow this LINK to learn more about small groups and to register.
JOIN OUR COMMUNITY OF FAITH
Membership is an important part of the life of the local church. By becoming a member of GEBC, you strengthen the church through your commitment to serve and support the ministries of the church. Membership courses happen twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. CLICK HERE to learn more.
GIVE TO THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH
Giving to the local church is an act of worship, as it is a unique expression of gratitude to God. When we give, we celebrate all that God has given us, especially His incredible gift of forgiveness made available to all through faith in His son Jesus. God owns everything. When we give, we are simply giving back of portion of what He has entrusted to us. Giving to the local church is also an act of faith, as it helps in accomplishing the mission of Helping Others Follow Jesus, both locally and globally.
