GCC Spotify Channel 
Our church loves to sing the truths of Scripture!  Now you can hear the songs we sing on Sunday via our church Spotify channel.  Share it with friends and family!

Children’s Classes
We currently provide nursery care (0-24 months) and a  preschool class (2 years - kindergarten)  during the 10am worship gathering.  Ages 2 years - kindergarten will begin in the sanctuary and may be dismissed at the beginning of the sermon to go to their class.  (Your kids are welcome to stay with you if you'd prefer.) Every three Sundays we plan to have a Family Worship Sunday, where the preschool class will stay in the sanctuary with their parents. Children can be checked in at the KidsQuest kiosk in the lobby.  A Geist Children's Bulletin is available for children staying in the sanctuary designed to help them follow along and participate in various aspects of the corporate worship gathering.

Core Courses
Core Courses are at 9AM on Sundays.
  • Evangelism: Guiding principles with weekly application
  • Digging Deeper: Studying the Scripture being preached Sunday

Sermon Discussion Questions
1.  Why is it good that God is "foremost" about His own glory?  How have you wrestled with this truth?
2.  How have you seen God transform your own heart from one of "stone" to one of "flesh?"
3.  How have you been tempted to seek out God's blessings apart from His presence?
4.  How might you explain heart-hardness to an unbeliever?
