begins on May 19th following worship, and ends on May 22nd, following the fundraising dinner. Historically, there are always great items at GMC’s silent auctions, and things can get pretty competitive.
The meal will feature authentic Middle Eastern food. Suggested donations are $10/adult and $5/children, ages 2-12. The silent auction will conclude at this event. (All funds raised from the silent auction and meal are non-tax deductible.)

starting at 1pm in Blue Bell Park! If you want to be on this year's kickball team--The Pacifist Agressives--please let Michelle Bruhn (our outstanding Facilities Administrator) know, and let her know what size t-shirt you want for the event. It's $25 per person to play, and $10 per spectator. Food is included in the cost of admission. All money goes towards scholarships for the Yes And summer camp. *Please note: If you are planning to play, the rules state that you'll need to agree to stay until the winner is called (usually by 6pm).
To get there, they need to fund-raise just over $5,000.

Although we come together as
a "company of strangers," Jesus' lifeblood — poured out to establish
the new covenant — flows through our veins, making us one body in
WE COME TOGETHER as:
CHRIST LOVES US in our "strangeness" and welcomes us into one body. We value:
In response, we desire to offer hospitality to each other, our neighborhood, our co-workers, and other "strangers."
we want to grow in the experience of God's love and grace. As we learn
to accept God's love and to give and receive love in return, we find
ourselves "no longer strangers and aliens, but citizens with members of
the household of God." (Ephesians 2:19)
WE SEEK to
experience the full richness of Christ's body by welcoming into our full
life and ministry all who freely desire to join us in our Christian
walk; inclusive of the diversity of age, education, ethnicity, gender,
economic or social class, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental
conditition, or residence.
