We are pleased to welcome nine new members to GPMC this Sunday, October 26. That will make over thirty this year! We give thanks that God continues to bless us with brothers and sisters in Christ who come to us with gifts to share as we all seek to serve God through the ministries of GPMC and our daily lives.
What’s on tap this week: in addition to Sunday school for all grades, we also have 3rd Grade Bible Class. 3rd Grade Bible Class for Parents, Knock-Knock: Answering God’s Call in Everyday Life, Journey to the Common Good (study of a Walter Brueggemann book), and a mission trip meeting for high school students and their parents. Plenty to do in addition to worship at GPMC!
“Countless Gifts of Love,” our 2015 annual stewardship season, began last week. The Stewardship Council is hosting a series of desserts (1 hour max) in order to share information with members and take questions. If you cannot make your designated gathering, you can come to any one that is on the calendar. You will also receive a pledge card in the mail or you can pledge online by clicking here. Remember, 60% of our income comes from member pledges. We cannot do our ministry without you!
Children are always welcome in worship at GPMC. Free childcare for infants and toddlers is available every Sunday morning during worship. Growing with God, a special program for children ages 3 through 2nd grade, is offered on Sundays at the earliest service. Growing with God does involve some gardening- please dress children appropriately.
