HOLIDAY BLESSINGS
We want to bless Mission Agape during this holiday season. Let's help them stock the King’s Storehouse to begin a new year with resources to meet as many needs as possible in our community. Please pick up a list and a shopping bag in the south rotunda. Once you purchase items or gift cards, bring them back to GCR and place them under the Christmas tree. Contact Valerie Tinker for more information. 

 

JESSE TREE DEVOTIONAL BOOK
The Jesse Tree devotional reading is underway!  Look for daily reminder videos on the GCR Facebook page everyday between now and December 25.

 

MERGE (5th-6th grade)
We will be taking a break from our monthly Merge event until January. We would like for our Merge families to pray about coming to our Parent Seminar on December 10! Sign up online.

 

ONE TO ONE TUTORING
1 to 1 Tutoring is a valuable and growing ministry that partners local churches with schools to provide students with access to a resource that is greatly needed, but often cost prohibitive.
Each Tuesday afternoon, volunteers from GCR meet in the Lee High School Library to help students with their schoolwork. As the program continues to expand, we need tutors in ALL subjects! You do not have to be an expert…the only requirement is basic knowledge of a subject, and a willingness to help students study or complete assignments. We are also in need of volunteers to provide food each week. This is a great opportunity to get to know some amazing young people and show our support for the teachers and counselors who invest so much in the lives of our local youth. Sign up in the South Rotunda, or contact Valerie Tinker for more information.
