A Few Highlights from June

Target Practice:  If you have made it to a weekend service in June, you have experienced some truly phenomenal worship and incredible, life-changing messages as part of the Target Practice message series.  If you (or your man) haven't made it yet, it's not too late to join us for the last few weeks of the series, which is scheduled to conclude July 14th-15th.  The prayer is that as our men get pointed in the right direction, our families, church, and community will follow.   

Service Times:  Don't forget our new service times are Saturday at 6:00pm and Sunday at 9:30am and 11:00am. 

Level Up:  There was quite a buzz around Kids Ministry on June 9th-10th as all children from Toddlers though 6th grade moved up to their new environments!  Kids entered through a seascape hallway as leaders excitedly greeted a whole new group of kids!  Kids earned beach prizes for bringing friends, participated in beach-themed activities and, as always, had the opportunity to learn more about Jesus!

Kenya Mission Trip 

Wednesday, June 27th - Saturday, July 7th  

Please pray for the Kenya Mission Team that left June 27th and is currently serving in Kandaria and Katito in western Kenya until July 7th.  Please pray that God will work in and through this team to minister to these two communities for His glory and also for health and safety for the team as they travel. A prayer card with the names and pictures of the team members and specific prayer requests for this trip is available HERE.  Thank you for supporting this team and this trip with your prayers!

Believer's Baptism

Saturday, July 14th  // 7:00pm - 8:00pm  

Whether you are a new believer or have just never taken the step of professing your faith in Jesus through baptism, we would love to celebrate Believer's Baptism with you in a special outdoor Baptism on July 14th after the 6:00pm service. We will finish off the evening watching Cranberry Township Community Days fireworks from the best spot in town!

Remember, Believers Baptism doesn't make you a believer, it shows you already believe! So if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Savior, are a student (in 5th grade or above) or adult, and are ready to take this step of obedience, please REGISTER HERE. Someone will contact you with additional information the week prior to the Baptism.

Please let Emily at emily@mygcc.org know if you have any questions.
