It’s Back!

At GPCC, we display the rainbow flag to show that our doors are open to all, including members of the LGBTQ community. We are not a gay church, we are a church for everybody–even if you think homosexuality is wrong, you are welcome here as long as you are kind and tolerant toward others.

Faith on Tap – March 12th, 6pm-10pm: GPCC’s monthly discussion group for all faiths and political views. [note: previous newsletter had the incorrect date]

This Week

The Abrahamic Alliance is presenting on how Muslims, Christians, and Jews can put aside our differences and how we can all serve the community and one another. Remember that all donations will go to our speakers!

We are continuing to work on the bee sanctuary with Project Pollinate, so feel free to stay after the service to help out!

In the kid’s area, we are going to learn about the season of Lent and I will teach the kids my favorite Lenten practice, the Gratitude Examen. This practice comes from the Ignatians and requires taking a few minutes each day to think about what you are grateful for.

See you Sunday,
Christy and the GPCC Staff
