Our mission is to provide a loving environment in which the Holy Spirit is alive and the word of God is heard. To express the love and grace of Jesus Christ. To nurture disciples who will go into their everyday world and make Christianity tangible.
Our worship is a powerful expression of our faith as a Christian family. Through the spoken word, song and prayer, we offer praise to God and gratitude to Christ for his amazing and gracious love for each of us.
Young Families Lunch and Planning Meeting II is Sunday, September 11th at 11:30am in the Fellowship Hall with lunch provided for all attending. At the first meeting in June, we brainstormed ideas for activities and times that might appeal to GVPC’s younger households. At this meeting, we hope to choose several first-choice activities (from the brainstorm list) for the fall season, and appoint separate teams to plan and publicize each activity. Infant thru preschool care provided if requested through the church office. All children welcome. Please note, this program and activities are geared for all families with children aged infant to 17 years! Please plan on attending, we need your ideas and energy!
Please RSVP to the church office if attending and if childcare is required.

We continue our study of Genesis 1 – 3 with the second Creation account of chapter 2.
Why two accounts? When I was a kid, my parents had one of those old 19th century picture viewers that had two pictures of the same image side-by-side which had such variations that, when you looked at them simultaneously through a two-lens viewer, they appeared 3D. They were called stereoscopes.

Some realities are so vast in proportion and cosmic in scope that the mortal mind cannot possibly wrap its imagination around them.
Sometimes it takes a parable or a myth to express such realities.
That is the genius of Genesis chapters 1 – 3.

O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouths of babes and infants you have founded a bulwark because of your foes, to silence the enemy and the avenger. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?
