Around GPC


For your summer reading, check out our library book cart on the patio after worship. The library is also open whenever the church office is open. There’s a great variety of books for all ages!

Friendliness Opportunity – Be an Usher on Sunday Mornings!

Serving as an usher for Sunday morning worship is not only an act of hospitality, but also a way to become more familiar with our congregation. If you would be interested in occasionally being a welcoming presence for GPC, offering a smile and a friendly “Hello”, please drop by the Visitor Table before or after worship on Sunday mornings. Guidelines and instructions are available for the duties and procedures. Ushering is not difficult and your service will be greatly appreciated.


for Isla Vista Youth Project

These bins know no season and are always available in the entry of the Fellowship Hall for donations or on Trinity Terrace the first Sunday of the month. A list of needed items is posted on the bulletin board.



 White socks are always needed by the residents of Casa Esperanza. There is a donations box in the entry way of the Fellowship Hall.
