LATEST UPDATE ON CORONAVIRUS

Bulletin

This Week

GCC will suspend all classes, events, and activities through Sunday, April 5. The suspension includes our March 28 & 29 and April 4 & 5 weekend on-site worship services. This suspension also includes the March 27 Youth Benefit Auction, March 28 Feed My Starving Children, March 31 Worship Concert and April 4 Family Easter Event. 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 including plans for ministry from April 5 forward.

 

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.
