GPC in the Community

GPC People are actively involved in the local community and the wider world, participating in a wide range of philanthropic and social activities.

Shown below are some of the significant ways we are involved.

 creekrestorationWhen we built our new sanctuary in 2000, we did extensive restoration work on the creek that runs adjacent to the GPC property. skipperWhen we built our new sanctuary we sold a portion of our property at a below-market price to the Cerebral Palsy Foundation. Thirteen permanent housing units were built where a number of CP-affected people have found homes. Several of these residents have become active participants in our church.  chuckjeffersonThe warm smile of Chuck Jefferson welcomes visitors on Sunday  mornings

Donations from GPC helped build a bakery there, where a number of people are employed and which serves not only the local community but surrounding communities as well. Members of the Patriensa church have visited with us here more than once, and members of GPC have visited them in Ghana.
