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.

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.
