Special Announcement from Pastor Mat Regarding the Coronavirus Epidemic
Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another– and all the more as you see the Day approaching.– Hebrews 10:25
The Elders and I agreed to suspend all public gatherings at GCC until further notice, including the Sunday morning worship service. No groups will use the building and we will do everything we can to limit exposure between persons of different households. Through the free online service, Zoom, GCC is offering a number of opportunities for interactive worship, teaching, singing, and prayer:
Online Sunday Worship – On Sunday mornings at 10:30*, join us for a live worship service via Zoom. For those who prefer, a live audio version of the service will be accessible via telephone (follow instructions below). The worship service is open to the public and we will post recordings of each service on our website, under Sermons and our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/gccefc.
Tuesday/Thursday Check-ins – On Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7 p.m., we will hold an evening check-in where we’ll connect with other believers and hear a brief devotional.
Wednesday Morning Prayer – Join us for an online prayer meeting, Wednesday mornings at 9 a.m., as we lift our praises to the Lord and pray for the needs of our church, our community and the world.
Youth Group – Teens in grades 7-12 are welcome to an online Youth Group on Friday evenings at 7 p.m. See your friends, be encouraged in your faith, and have some online fun!
During this difficult time, know that you are not alone and that God is working for our good. Let’s draw our life from the True Vine!
*Please join the Zoom Online Sunday Worship by 10:20 so we can make sure everyone is oriented to the manner of our meeting. Think of it as our “virtual” Coffee Time. 🙂

As much as possible, please stay home and don’t risk being exposed to illness or exposing others. If you are in need of assistance, food, or medicine, or if you feel uncomfortable procuring such necessities, please contact Pastor Mat at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please continue to check on one another through phone calls and texts.
In lieu of physical services, please mail tithes and offerings directly to the church mailbox, 113 Stancliff Rd, Glastonbury, CT 06033 to keep GCC ministries going. You can use your bank’s online bill-pay option to mail checks. We trust that the Lord will provide generously and that everyone’s needs will be met.
With you in Christ,
