Men's Night

Men 21 and older are invited to join us for Men's Night. This will be a great opportunity for the men of the church to gather and enjoy some delicious food and fun games. Don't forget to BYOB and feel free to invite some friends! Money raised from this event will help support our Student Ministry. 

Parking Lot
As a reminder, there are times that our parking lot gets busy.  We continue to be in communication with Valley Christian Junior High about how to make those busy times safe for everyone and run smoothly.  Please be aware that during those times, we may need to be patient and flexible.  Thank you for always looking out for all our friends on our campus.  
GCA Christmas Program

Join us for our annual Christmas program on December 12th at 6:30 PM in the Worship Center. Our students will present an "old-fashioned" Christmas Pageant including traditional Christmas songs and the telling of "The Christmas Story". We look forward to seeing you on this special night!
