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!
Philippines Typhoon Haiyan
One of the worst recorded typhoons in history, Haiyan has left many dead, hundreds of thousands displaced, and extensive damage. The initial response includes provision of non-food items, drinking water and emergency shelter kits. All PC(USA) mission workers are reported safe. Visit the Philippines response index for reports and resources.
PDA will respond with One Great Hour of Sharing and designated funds as assessments are completed, needs are identified, and an appeal for assistance is issued.
Give online to support disaster response in the Philippines.
There will be only one worship service on December 29 at 10:00 am.

Mission Committee sponsored CHRISTMAS TOY DRIVE! Remember to bring a new, unwrapped toy or two to church by Sunday, Dec. 15th for the children served by FaithAction International House. They range in age from infancy through 13 years. Darker-skinned dolls and Hispanic toys (like Dora and Diego) are especially appreciated for the little ones. Please no guns or other toys that evoke violence, as many of these children have lived with violence. The collection baskets are under the Chrismon tree in the courtyard entryway. If you would like to make a donation in addition to or in lieu of shopping yourself, mark your check for “Toy Drive” and someone will do the shopping for you!
Contemporary Service - 9:00 a.m.
