Consecration Sunday, December 7

Thanks to the many members who have already submitted their estimates of giving for 2015 as part of our “Restore, Renew, Reinvent, and Rejoice” stewardship campaign.  Other GCCC members have received a followup correspondence that updates the progress on this campaign, while encouraging a “Step Up” in giving to support the SPIRIT initiative.  We are excited by the calling of Ian Rottenberg and look forward to the innovative programs and services that will enhance our collective church experience.  We plan to conclude the stewardship campaign on December 7, 2014—Consecration Sunday—and hope you can join us to celebrate our community of faith.  Thank you for your support of the Garden City Community Church.  We look forward to seeing you throughout the joyous month of December to share the Good News of our savior’s birth.


Christmas Gifts for the Children at Inglesia Presbiteriana Hispana

The Church’s tradition of purchasing Christmas gifts for the children at the Iglesia Presbiteriana Hispana in Hempstead continues.  Mark your calendars for November 23rd and stop by the Christmas Banner Tree which will be located in the Parlor to select an ornament with a child’s name.  Enjoy shopping for a gift and talk to others about the “Joy of Giving!”  Return your wrapped gift with the ornament as the name tag to the Parlor by 6p on December 17th.  Please contact Allyson or Rhonda Kraff at 747-4140 if you have any questions.    


Honor a Special Person or Event: Host a Fellowship Hour

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.
