GCC Sunday Gathering

Sunday, September 27th, 2020 @ 10:30 AM

The service will be live streamed, recorded and posted on our virtual worship page following the live gathering.

A checklist for Sunday (all explained in the Guidelines, but important not to forget):

·      Bring your own chairs, masks and hand sanitizer, plus water if desired.

·      There will be no access to the church building… except for emergency bathroom use.

·      Arrive early enough to set up your chairs (socially distanced, with guidance from an usher) without disrupting the service.

·      If you would be willing to help as an usher, please let me know in case we need additional hands.

·      In the event of rain, the service will be canceled and not moved indoors.

As we begin to explore, process, and pray about moving to indoor worship, would you pray for your pastor and elders as we strive to 1) honor God with wisdom and confidence, and 2) honor each other in safety and love? We also will need volunteers to help with: cleaning, sanitizing, crowd monitoring and flow maintenance, and other necessary logistics. Thank you, all of you, for your prayers, patience, and prudence. We’re all in this together!

GCC Monthly Prayer

Monthly prayer (per the Guidelines)  will be resumed on the first Wednesday of each month, outdoors at GCC.  Wednesday, October 7th at 6:30 PM is the next gathering*.

GCC Revival Prayer

Monica Conlogue is leading a GCC Revival Prayer experience (outside per GCC Guidelines, found here…) the 1st and 3rd Mondays of every month.  The next gathering will be Monday, October 5th at 6:30 PM*.  

*(This is assuming the current virus statistics remain level and that the State of Massachusetts continues to affirm to everyone that it is safe to gather, and that the weather cooperates!).  Please refresh yourselves with the Guidelines (posted on the website) and the checklist above.

Please remember, the Guidelines were prayed over by your elders and pastor and they were carefully assembled with direct information from the CDC, our Government, and the State of Massachusetts – not out of fear, but out of caution, concern, and love for each other and our neighbors.  Even humming is “making a joyful noise unto the Lord!”  Amen?  And, the Bible affirms that worship and praise is a matter of the heart and spirit – so much more so than what noises we are allowed or advised not to make.

Take Advantage of The GCC Prayer Chain

The GCC Prayer Chain is another tool for all of us to remain connected – at all times! We all have concerns, hardships, struggles that we should not bear alone. We also, each of us, have countless blessings to be grateful for. All of us, as the Body, are here for you – to pray and help you shoulder the tough times; and we’re eager to dance with you in the good times. So many would be encouraged to hear how God is working even now in your life.  Email me (pastortrip@greenwoodschurch.com) if you’d like to be added to the prayer chain email list.

Temporary Closure of Clothing Shed in GCC Parking Lot

The St. Pauly Textile, Inc. Clothing Shed, located in our parking lot, is temporarily closed until further notice. St. Pauly announced it has a backlog of clothing collected to date during the pandemic created by interruptions with their usual overseas’ distribution avenues.  As we receive further information, we will update all of you.
