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 Applications are now Available!

church mouse

Do you make hand-crafted arts and crafts to sell?  Come and participate in GPC’s 41st Church Mouse Bazaar on Saturday, November 17, 2018, 9am – 3:30pm. Applications for crafter spaces are available NOW.  Send your application in ASAP because we fill up very quickly!

Our arts and crafts bazaar takes over our church building with 80+ tables of creations!  This is a high quality, extremely well advertised and attended event!   It is enjoyable for crafters and we have a snack bar and plenty of parking.  Tell your crafty friends, too!

If the crafter is on our mailing list from last year, they will receive an application mailed or emailed to them by June 6.  An application can be found here (2018 Church Mouse crafter application) or contact church_mouse@gatespres.org.  Please return them to the person named on the application (and not the church) as soon as possible because we go by a first come – first served basis and we fill up very fast.

Here are the Church Mouse Rules for vendors.
