This Week's Message

But the Lord said, “You have been concerned about this plant, though you did not tend it or make it grow. It sprang up overnight and died overnight. And should I not have concern for the great city of Nineveh, in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand people who cannot tell their right hand from their left—and also many animals?”

 – Jonah 4:10-11 NIV

Children’s Christmas Musical

What if we all just “unplugged”? In the darkness would it be easier to see the true Light of Christmas and grasp the power of the moment our Savior entered this world? Join GCC Kids on Sunday, December 18, at 4:00 pm for the GCC Christmas musical, “An Unplugged Christmas,” a story of discovering the true Light of Christmas. The GCC Youth Worship Ensemble will also present special music. Childcare is not available.gccws.net/christmas
