GREGORY DRIVE
Alliance Church
A place to belong… There is a deep
desire for community in all of us. Look
at Tim Horton’s and malls, and you will
see groups of people who meet on a
regular basis. God has put within us all
a strong need to belong, to contribute,
to be valued and to be accepted.
Gregory Drive Alliance Church is part
of God’s “big family”, and you are
welcome to come and belong!
Belong
A place to begin... Gregory Drive is a
place for new beginnings, no matter
who you are or what you’ve
experienced. So whether you’re
looking for a new church home or just
a new start in life, God has a new
beginning planned for you and your
family. Your spiritual journey can begin
right here!
Begin
A place to believe... We all believe in
someone or something, and as a
church family we have an unshakable
belief in a loving and just God and we
are learning to love each other
unconditionally. We are governed not
by man but by believing God and His
Word. We invite you to join us as we
learn, believe and apply what God
reveals to us in the Bible.
Believe
A place to become… People exist to
know God and be known by Him. We
invite you to join us on the greatest
journey of all - to become a person of
God’s purpose and plan.
Become

Aquire the Fire event. Pray that that gospel message proclaimed
would take root in the hearts of the many young people aƩending.
NIGERIA Boko Haram has killed approx. 2000 civilians, with
ChrisƟans being especially targeted. The leader of Boko Haram has
threatened " this is just the beginnings of the killings. This is just the
Ɵp of the iceberg, more deaths are coming." Pray for God's
protecƟon over his people and that they may remain faithful in the
midst of great persecuƟon and even, if God wills, to death.
