Announcements

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.

New Core Course - Baptism & the Lord's Supper (Communion)
Today | January  29  | 9:00am | GCC
Join us for five weeks beginning January 29.  We will take an in-depth look at Baptism and the Lord's Supper (Communion).  We'll look at the historical-biblical origins of each practice and see how they define and differentiate the gathering of Christ's church from the rest of the world.

Corporate Prayer Time
Wednesday | February 1  | 6:30-7:30pm | GCC
Beginning this week, we will begin gathering every Wednesday evening for 10 weeks leading up to Easter.  The primary purpose of our time will be praying together with a different prayer emphasis each week.  A daily personal prayer guide to be used at home will also be provided.

Traditions at Brookside
Thursday | February 1  | 10:30 - 11:00am | Traditions at Brookside
Each week we go to the assisted living facility and hold a 30-minute chapel service for the residents.  Feel free to join us as we sing and share of our Lord through His Word!

Save the Date
Sunday, February 12, we will have a church-wide luncheon followed by a member meeting.
