Sixth Sunday of Easter and Pastor Al Tizon’s Installation

We welcome Reverend Justin Richter, a friend and companion to our congregation, to our pulpit this Sunday.  Justin is now the Director of Global Missions for the Cumberland Presbyterian Church.  He will be preaching from Ezra 4: 1-5.  “Rebecoming the People of God”

We are filled with joy as we celebrate Pastor Al's installation. Joining us are guests from out of town, neighboring churches and former GFCC session members as we celebrate God's faithfulness to us. 

Refreshment Time After the Installation Service on Sunday, May 5

We are going to celebrate Al’s installation by having a potluck refreshment time.  We invite you to bring/make a dessert or something savory to share with the congregation and guests.  Please drop it off in the kitchen before the service begins.

What better way to celebrate Pentecost (Diversity in Unity) than to have a Love Feast of food representing the different cultures of our congregation and neighborhood.  You are invited to bring your favorite food to share. Feel free to be creative in the types of food you bring.

Dessert will be provided, so no need to bring.
