When the community experienced a major flood, GNF served as an emergency shelter when hundreds of people were forced to leave their homes. GNF helped with cleanup and preparation for damage assessors.
GNF is a church plant of neighboring Birch Bay Bible Community Church. GNF was started by a small group families who wanted to reach households in their area with the good news of Jesus. “Like many USMB churches, the church’s founding was a labor of love both in loving and serving people and building the facility with our own hands,” says pastor Luke LeViere. Photo is from a recent vision meeting.
GNF recently sent a team of seven to Malawi where two congregants have started a non-profit mission called Living Water Malawi. They work with a local pastor and school. A week before their trip a devastating cyclone hit Malawi. The team of seven brought 16 large suitcases packed with medical supplies and clothing. They served, prayed and shared the love of Jesus with kids and their parents.
