Missions: Get Involved!

There has never been a more exciting time in history for mission ministry.  We need more than ever to reach across the street and around the world to demonstrate Christ’s love to a lost and hurting world.  At GCBC we are involved in a variety of missions.  Everyone’s help is needed–there’s a place for you!  Come and join us.
