100 DAYS OF PRAYER EVENTS

Prayer Walk around the GCR Campus,
Sunday August 27, 3:00-4:00pm meet in the Rotunda.  Please join us for this special Prayer event as we walk around the GCR Campus.  You will be given prayer guides as we all walk together.  We hope that Life Groups, Families and Members of all ages will participate.  If the weather does not cooperate we will walk indoors.

GCR KIDS
This month children’s offering will go to the Midland County Public Libraries for ‘Project Literacy 2017’. Each year the library partners with a number of community organizations for a week’s worth of literacy programming in an effort to promote the importance and impact literacy can have. The money raised will go to offset the cost of giving a book to EVERY student in the first grade in Midland County.  

VOLUNTEERS
We need YOU!!  Please contact Wendy Humphries at 615-243-5410 or wendy@gcrcc.org to volunteer.

CHILDREN’S WORSHIP
Finding teachers and helpers for Children’s Worship has become increasingly difficult and because of this, we are doing away with Children’s Worship until we can increase our volunteer base.  If you have concerns or questions, please contact Wendy Humphries at 615-243-5410.

SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
Thank you to everyone who shared their time, resources and prayers for the school supply drive this year. Wednesday night was an overwhelming success and we are so appreciative of our GCR members. The teachers were grateful for the supplies, but even more grateful to have the opportunity to pray with our members at the prayer request station. We look forward to growing this event next year and blessing even more teachers in our community. Thank you also to all of the teachers and administrators who love and minister to our children every day.
