Focus on Missions

February 4 - GCC Celebrates their 10th Anniversary

Please come join in the celebration after each service. On Jan 31, 2008, the GCC met for the first time. During that year they defined their VISION, MISSION and VALUES. They then selected international organizations to partner with in fulfilling those goals.

VISION: In areas of great need, we will learn, serve and grow in partnership with individuals, families and communities for their immediate, sustained and eternal good, through the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.

MISSION: Together we will demonstrate Christ’s love in areas of great need.

1. We believe in compassion for others, just as Christ loves and has compassion for all;
2. We believe in generosity through the grace of giving;
3. We believe in partnerships to learn and share together;
4. We believe in accountability to the congregation and to our partners.

January Prayer

Dear Lord,
We thank You for bringing us into this new year, and we pray that in 2018 our hearts would be fully attentive to what You have to say to us.

Father, this year we ask that You would help us to grow in our faith and our walk with You. We pray that Your Spirit would strengthen us in our gifts, and that as we use them, they would bear fruit for Your glory.

We pray for Pastors Shawn and Dan who will be speaking to us this month. Empower them through Your Spirit to bring us into the presence of Jesus. And help us to listen carefully so that we hear what You are saying and can put it into practice.

Jesus, we pray that 2018 would be a year marked by growth, faith, and action. Help us to pay careful attention to You so that we do not drift away.

In Your Name we pray, amen.
