Welcome to the Garden City Community Church
Welcome to the Garden City Community Church,

Sunday, April 13 – Palm Sunday
8:30 a.m. Chapel, 10:30 a.m. Sanctuary
Thursday, April 17– 8:00 p.m., Sanctuary - Maundy Thursday Service
Come to worship and relive the events of the night when Jesus gathered in the Upper room with his disciples. Share in remembering The Last Supper as we celebrate Communion. Then, walk with Jesus through his last moments: his arrest; his trial; his crucifixion, in a service of Tenebrae. Tenebrae means darkness and as the passion narrative is read, candles are extinguished one by one. But the service ends with the hope of the coming resurrection as the Christ Candle is relit and shines forth.
Friday, April 18 - Good Friday Noon Service
Come to watch and wait through a solemn service acknowledging the suffering love of Christ through his crucifixion including scripture, prayers, music of the season and a meditation on the Cross.

Shop the Block is an event sponsored by the Auxiliary. The Car Wash is an event sponsored by the Mission Trip. There will be something for everyone. Shop the Block will feature a variety of vendors and crafters including gourmet delights, home decor, hand crafted items, costume jewelry, handbags and more. Shoppers can also enjoy refreshments and prizes from our vendors. You can shop the block and have your car washed at the same time, all while enjoying a day of fun!
Every week we collect food and school supplies for the LICC Food Pantry located in Freeport.
The INN is asking for plastic bags. Please put them in the INN bin.
Donations can be left in the food bins at the Whitehall and Kensington doors.
Our Sunday Fellowship Hours are sponsored by church members. You pick your Sunday, bring in a treat to share and we provide the coffee and other beverages. You could also make a $30.00 donation instead of bringing in the treat. You will receive a reminder call the week before your date. Sign-up sheets are on the bulletin board behind the Whitehall desk.
