HOLIDAY SERVICES

The holidays are a festive time at GCC and we would love to see you at one of our Holiday Services.

There will be no worship on Christmas Day. Having three opportunities to gather on Christmas Eve, we will NOT gather together for worship on Christmas Day.  A Christmas Reflection will be offered online on Facebook beginning at 9:30 a.m.   

Celebrating Christmas

sunday school

This year, we are going in a new direction with our Sunday School Christmas Program.  On December 18, all five of our choirs will present seasonal music.  Interspersed with this, our Religious Education Department will present a Christmas Story Pageant.  It will be a wonderful day of celebration for our Music and Education Program.
