The Season of Advent begins on Sunday, December 3.
STAND SUNDAY: Sunday, November 26, Worship Service
Together we will join with churches across the U.S. to raise awareness of the needs of vulnerable children and families in our communities who are touched by the foster care system.
GCC PARTNERING WITH OASIS DE SALVACION'S OUTREACH CHRISTMAS PARTY: Sunday, December 3, 1-4 p.m.
GCC exists to Grow Deep Roots and Extend Long Branches into our neighborhood. When we host community events like the Block Party or Harvest Fest, we always have families attend our events who are primarily or only Spanish speaking individuals. So how do we reach these neighbors? We want to reach all of our neighbors but sometimes language, culture, or other things prevent us from being effective. This December 3, Oscar and Carla Cortez from Oasis De Salvacion church have offered to partner with us to extend Long Branches to our neighbors. Together we can do something that we cannot do alone. We can connect with the Spanish speaking and Latino community around Grace. We are stronger together. Because wherever we go, we go together. So, we will have a community outreach event called Christmas at Grace with a meal, a service, and free brand-new gifts. This event is a long branch to our neighbors and Grace is offering our facility. Also, volunteers are needed on that day to fill some spots in helping with set-up, tear-down, wrapping gifts and serving food. Kara Tush is leading this in partnership with Oscar and Carla Cortez. Text Kara - 720-589-4218 or email the church office with your availability to assist.
ANNUAL ALL-CHURCH CHRISTMAS DINNER AT GCC: Sunday, December 10th, 5 - 7:30 p.m.
The plans for a Christmas dinner and game night are underway. That evening we will come together as the GCC Community to appreciate one another as the family of God. After dinner is served, we will set up tables for games. We welcome anyone and everyone to come and join in this "family" time. More details will follow.
VON STEIN OPEN HOUSE: Sunday, December 17th, 1 - 3:30 p.m.
Pastor Nick and Breanna will be hosting a Christmas open house at their home at 1764 S. Vancouver Court in Lakewood. Everyone is welcome to stop by, hang out, and enjoy the afternoon with the von Stein's.
