If you are planning a visit to GPPC, you’ll find information about our worship services, Sunday school classes for all ages, child care, service and fellowship opportunities, and more. If you are exploring membership at GPPC, you’ll learn more about who we are and what we believe in our New Member classes. Our Time and Talent form will help you get connected to our church and community.
We look forward to meeting you, and perhaps journeying together as disciples of Jesus Christ!
LITURGICAL BANNERS….The current liturgical banners we are using to enhance our worship during what is called “ordinary time,” illustrate what are known as “The Great Ends of the Church.” A more current term to describe what “Great Ends” are is to think of these as mission statements or goals of the Presbyterian Church USA. There are six of these banners and we will use them four at a time over the next few months. The current banners from left to right as you face the pulpit illustrate: Righteousness, Worship, Proclamation, and Truth. We are eternally grateful to GPPC members Lillian Barnes and Gerry Waterhouse for their work in creating these beautiful banners a number of years ago. (Look for a more detailed description of the banners in the upcoming July Guidepost).

Request from GPPC WORSHIP COMMITTEE: During the summer months, many of you will vacation out-of-town and attend other church services on Sundays. Please share with GPPC's Worship Committee any special worship stimulations you find during these vacation worship times. We encourage those who stay home not to vacation from GPPC worship since we are always stimulated by enthusiastic GPPC congregations- the larger the better ! The Worship Committee will put your feedback on their meeting agenda of August 6th. So let us hear from you please.
Contemporary Service - 9:00 a.m.
Traditional Service - 11:00 a.m.
