GCC continues to suspend onsite services and activities while in the Red Phase of COVID-19. The suspension includes all weekend on-site worship services. This decision is not made out of fear, but out of an abundance of caution for the care and well-being of our GCC family. It is also consistent with the ever-changing societal response to COVID-19. Because this situation is ever-changing, we will provide regular updates .
The church building is currently closed, but our pastors and staff continue to serve the GCC family and our community. Feel free to call or e-mail us.
Look for a special video message from Pastor Mike coming this week!!

GCC Facility Team Volunteers
Thank you to the MANY volunteers who registered to begin serving on GCC cleaning teams!! We had a great response for volunteers. There are still a few openings available. Check out the info below to register. Just a few days left to join the teams!
Teams are needed between the 8:00-9:15 am services, between the 9:15-11:00 am services and on Monday mornings to help clean and sanitize surfaces. Training and cleaning equipment will be provided, and team members will serve on a rotating schedule. Serving on these teams will take about 10-15 minutes on Sunday mornings or 30-60 minutes on Monday mornings.
If you able to serve on Sundays by coming early or staying late before or after the service of your choice, or if you have free time on Mondays to assist, we would love to have your help!
