The mission of GCR is to Love God, Love People, and Change the World. We love Facebook, but recognize it has its limitations. It's great for providing basic information, but not so great at hosting discussions on theological topics.
Therefore, posts that attempt to do so, will be removed. However, the staff and elders welcome live discussions.
Mission: The mission of GCR is to Love God, Love People, and Change the World.
Operating as usual
In remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr today, let us genuinely find ways to love people no matter who they are. May we live up to his legacy of promoting love and not hate.

We are collecting funds for our special collection all this week!

You can send in checks or give online at gcrchurch.com/giving (make sure to choose the "special contribution" fund).
We had some much fun in person and online creating Christmas masterpieces at our annual Mother/Daughter Cookies and Canvas! Thanks to everyone that helped make it a success! See you next year!

If you’re interested in supporting the Mission Agape Toy drive you can drop off or have toys delivered to the GCR church office!
We hope you can support our Toy Drive. We've done this for the past 8 years and the joy it brings is priceless!
This year it's our hope to bless 250-300 children!!
What makes our event special is the parent gets to select the toys for their kids. This is the best way we know how to show love to a parent who struggles with the fact they can't afford to buy gifts.
Help us remove this worry for them! Thank you!!
We are now on VENMO!! Yay!
In this year especially we want to say how thankful we are for our GCR family, our Midland community, and all of God’s blessings. Happy Thanksgiving!

Did you see our Christmas tree in the South Rotunda yesterday? It was beautiful! Thank you so much to the volunteers that set up and decorated!😁🎄
The Advent season is almost here! Advent is a time to prepare for celebrating the birth of Jesus at Christmas. This year, GCR families have put together a daily devotional book to help us look forward to the celebration of Christ entering the world! The Light of the World devotional book walks through different stories of scripture starting on November 29 and ending December 25, all looking forward to the birth of the Messiah. Pick up one of these books for your family starting this Sunday at out 10 AM service (no kids/youth classes this week) or swing by our office to pick up your copy.
This Sunday, we are excited that Dr. Jerry Taylor will be bringing our message in service. Dr. Taylor is a gifted preacher and we know you'll be blessed by him. Join us in person or online @ 10 am.
