Saving the world, one conversation at a time
One of our ministers posts a chalkboard for Thanksgiving guests: "Topics we can talk about. And those we can't." And it's not just Thanksgiving tables that are threatened because it's hard for us to talk about the big things an stay civil. At GFC we're practicing engaging with politics and big topics at church and agreeing to disagree, respectfully. Our first Courageous Conversation in April tackled Political Correctness. More are planned. As our facilitator Rev. Dr. Allen Hilton puts it: "We might just save the world, one conversation at a time." Stay tuned for more opportunities to be courageous.
Don'T miss the texas bbq
Join us on May 20, from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm for our Family Texas BBQ. We’ll be playing games on the lawn and playground, telling stories, and enjoying the vocal stylings of LaQruishia Gill and Rev. Megan Cullip. Yummy BBQ-y items such as brisket, ribs and hot dogs will be offered. We ask that you help provide the sides and desserts. If interested in contributing and/or attending, please RSVP to Jackie Spencer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The 2017-18 Annual Report is now available - click here to read about our year, and where we're going. As Rev. Jeff Rider writes in his introduction: "Five years ago, GFC did some soul-searching to create our Vision and themes of Discipleship and Community. Today, those themes are more relevant that ever. Our antidote to fear and anxiety is, as John wrote two millennia ago, love. Choosing love - of God, of each other - is the work of the church. It's the work of our lives."
