Property Development Opportunity

GPC is investigating the possibility of selling the GPC property on the west side of the parking lot to an organization whose mission is aligned with ours through the development of low-income and supportive housing. We’re asking congregational members to share their thoughts on this opportunity by completing a survey (note: this is a members-only survey). The survey will remain open from December 16 through January 13. Results will be shared with the congregation at the Congregational Meeting in January. Surveys can be found in the bulletin, in the church office and on the GPC website. Your input is important! Please share your thoughts with us (please only complete one survey).

Click the link below to view the PDF version of the survey.  You may download, print and either mail it to the church or drop it off in the box in the office.

GPC Roof Campaign

This fall we will kick off our 2018-2020 Roof Campaign. The trustees have done an amazing job on roof maintenance to allow for us to ONLY NOW be asking for additional roof funds. The roof over the north side of the building (the section that was added to the original building) passed its warranty a couple years ago, so we are now on “borrowed time”, as they say. With the help of a roofing contractor we have estimated we need a budget of $80,000 to cover the cost of replacing the roof.  We have already raised $20,000 from donations and trustee savings. There is a committee working on the plan for the remaining $60,000 over the next two years.  We will have a couple of fundraisers and are looking for grant funding, but the majority of the funds will be asked for from our GPC membership. It works out to be under $0.50 per day for two years (730 days) per member if everyone participated.  While we won’t officially start the campaign until the fall, please prayerfully consider the level to which you can support the campaign. The roof fund is already established so if you’d like to get a jump on giving, go right ahead and designate the gift as “The Roof Fund”. Thanks for helping keep the sun shining in and the elements staying out!
