You are Welcome at GPC!

window_starIf you visit us you’ll find people of different ages and perspectives finding a common center in a living Christ. The message you hear in worship service will relate timeless spiritual truths to the issues you face every day in our high-tech, globalizing world. The people you meet here will welcome you with genuine, easy-going warmth. The music you hear will be a blend of traditional hymns sung by the congregation or the chancel choir, as well as contemporary praise music, jazz, harp and acoustic guitar, and maybe even a young piano student sharing a piece they learned for their recital.

Nathan Maurer conducts the chancel choir and the praise band and coordinates the overall GPC music program. We offer excellent programs for kids, teens and adults of all ages. We are a mission-oriented church, supporting many causes in the Goleta and Santa Barbara communities as well as working for Peace and Social Justice at home and throughout the world.
