Friendly Kitchen Needs Your Help!
GCC Youth Group Music Video
The 4th Friday of every month our Friendly Kitchen endeavors to serve a luncheon at the Salvation Army for those who need a good lunch. A sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in our Fellowship Hall asks for donations of American Chop Suey and/or brownies in the winter months, and egg salad/ tuna salad or potato/pasta salad in the summer months. Please bring your donations to the church kitchen early the morning of the 4th Friday and the committee will take them to the Salvation Army for serving.
There WILL be a Friendly Kitchen this year during the months of November and December.

Message from Pastor Michael Graham...
Churches come in a variety of shapes and sizes; what makes each place unique is the people gathered.
Churches are one of the few institutions where people of all ages play an important role. We share life toge ther and make the passage from childhood to adulthood in the presence of others. How wonderful it is to make the passage through life with people who care for you.
I love the intergenerational flavor of the Gilford Community Church; where young and old regularly come together, where children arenít spoken "to" but are invited to join in the wonderful conversation of faith. The enthusiasm of our children, the idealism of our youth and young adults, and the wisdom of our elders, all blend together to make this a vibrant, hope-filled community.
WORSHIP SERVICE TIME: 10:00 a.m.
The first Sunday of every month Communion is celebrated during worship. Worship attenders are invited to bring non-perishable food with them to worship to donate to the Food Pantry in the foyer in front of the sanctuary.
The second Sunday of every month there is a Hymn Sing held in the sanctuary, before worship, at 9:40 a.m. (except the summer months).
