Opening Our Doors
GPC is the host of several community activities, some of which are listed below. For more information or to ask about hosting your group here, call the church office.
Church Mouse Bazaar
The Church Mouse Bazaar, always held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, is the longest running arts and crafts show in the area. In the beginning, church members made items to sell. Now, after more than 40 years, we have crafters from all over the community looking forward to showing off their creativity by selling their handcrafted wares. We fill the church with more than 80 tables of arts and crafts from more than 50 crafters. We have included a baked food sale and an extensive Snack Bar. Every year there are unique gifts to be purchased – for you and for holiday presents! Admission is always FREE with plenty of parking! Look on our website for more information in early November.
If you are a crafter and would like to participate in November, applications are available in early June. Watch for announcements on our website. Please return applications to the person indicated (and not the church) as soon as possible because we go by a first come, first served basis and we fill up very fast.
