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.
  • Sin: Its origin, nature, scope, degrees and wages, from the Fall through its remedy in Christ
  • Digging Deeper: Studying the Scripture being preached Sunday

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!

As we study the book of Galatians, be sure to check out the resources for sale in the cafe to help your personal study of the book!

Sermon Discussion Questions
1.  In what ways might a Christian be tempted to compromise the truth of the gospel to try and avoid "suffering" for their faith?
2.  What evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit have you observed in your life? Consider asking others (spouse, parent, trusted friend, etc.) the same question of your life.
3.  Is there a certain "hard" area of your life that the model of Abraham's faith can encourage you? (see Genesis 12, Hebrews 11:8-12)
4.  How could we (Christians) more consistently give thanks for the tremendous blessing of the Holy Spirit in our lives?
