This bi-weekly meeting will include time for sharing and support, prayer and communion.

Join members and friends of GPMC for our annual Empty Tomb Sunrise 5K Walk/Run Sunday, April 16, Easter Sunday. We meet at our columbarium (16 Lakeshore Drive) at 6 a.m., run/walk 5K, and many of us stay for the lakeside sunrise service at 6:45- only 30 minutes, with communion. Yes, we stay in our running clothes: ASICS look good with the pastor’s white robe!
Children, dogs, families- everyone is welcome. No registration required: just come on out. Why? Because Easter is a celebration of the resurrection of the body. And…. “Early on the first day of the week, when it was still dark….Peter and the other disciple set out and went towards the tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.”
