GP Updates

March 27, 2024

We extend a heartfelt invitation to join us for a meaningful Holy Week journey, culminating in the glorious celebration of Easter Sunday.

On Maundy Thursday*, March 28th at 7pm, immerse yourself in a time of prayer, music, and scripture as we reflect on the example and command of Jesus to serve others just as He served us. Join us as we consider the profound impact of Jesus’ humble act of servanthood and our mission to go and do likewise.

Continuing Holy Week, we invite you to join us on Good Friday*, March 29th, from 5 to 7pm, for a solemn and reflective prayer event featuring interactive devotional stations and moments of quiet contemplation. Through prayer and reflection, we will journey together through the profound depths of Christ’s love and the immense price He paid for our redemption.

*Communion elements will be offered during Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services.

As Holy Week draws to a close, join us in joyful celebration on Easter Sunday*, March 31st, at 9:30** and 11am, as we gather to exalt the risen Lord who defeated death and is the one true King. With hearts overflowing with gratitude and hope, we will lift our voices in worship, proclaiming the victory of Jesus Christ over sin and death. Featuring a time of coffee, food and fellowship from 10:30 – 11am, we look forward to celebrating God and His gospel with you this Easter!

*Adult Sunday School classes are not meeting on Easter Sunday.

**Children’s Programming will be offered only during 1st service on Easter Sunday.

THANK YOU FOR SHOWING UP & SHOWING SUPPORT
THANK YOU FOR SHOWING UP & SHOWING SUPPORT

Thank you to everyone who supported the GP Women’s Ministry either by purchasing delicious sweet tamales, or by making a donation! We raised nearly $900 for the WM Scholarship Fund which helps send women to camps, seminars and Bible studies.

We had a big turn out for the All Church Work Day & breakfast! It was a fun morning of fellowship while we trimmed bushes, pulled weeds, and spread bark dust around the church campus in preparation for Easter Sunday. Thanks so much, to all who came out to help!

FRAMEWORK SEMINAR • APRIL 6 • 10AM - 1PM • REGISTER TODAY

There are many things that challenge our thinking in our time and culture today, but how do we think about them? Framework Seminars help to provide a framework of how to think about some of the big topics and questions in our cultural moment. The first in our series will touch on the topic of Gender and Sexuality, Part 1.

FAMILY FUN GAME NIGHT • APRIL 13 • 6 - 8PM

Game Night is an opportunity for families with kids in elementary school and younger to join us for an evening of friendly competition and fun!  We will have board games, yard games and some team competition. For more info & to register, click the button below!

FACILITY MAINTENANCE PROJECT

We are privileged to serve with you in our church’s mission, “To glorify God by making Disciples who Love God and Love People.” We appreciate all you do in giving your time, talents, and money to the ministry as we pursue our mission together. Critical to our mission is the wise use of our facilities. To that end, we are eager to share with you a special maintenance project for two crucial (but unseen) elements of our facility.
