Announcements

GCC Spotify Channel 
Our church loves to sing the truths of Scripture!  Now you can hear the songs we sing on Sunday via our church Spotify channel.  Share it with friends and family!

Children’s Classes
We currently provide nursery care (0-24 months) and a  preschool class (2 years - kindergarten)  during the 10am worship gathering.  Ages 2 years - kindergarten will begin in the sanctuary and may be dismissed at the beginning of the sermon to go to their class.  (Your kids are welcome to stay with you if you'd prefer.) Every three Sundays we plan to have a Family Worship Sunday, where the preschool class will stay in the sanctuary with their parents. Children can be checked in at the KidsQuest kiosk in the lobby.  A Geist Children's Bulletin is available for children staying in the sanctuary designed to help them follow along and participate in various aspects of the corporate worship gathering.

Core Courses
Core Courses are at 9AM on Sundays.
  • Ecclesiastes: Our lives are short, but are they pointless?
  • Digging Deeper: Studying the Scripture being preached Sunday
  • NEXT SUNDAY:  Corporate Prayer Time

Sermon Discussion Questions
1.  In what ways does Exodus 33:14 anticipate Joshua chapter 1? How does the promise that God's presence will go with His people bring you comfort and courage?
2.  Why is the consequence so severe for disobedience in Joshua 1:18? How are we tempted to disobey the directions of God in His Word? What should we do when we disobey the Lord's commands?3.  Hebrews 4:8 reminds us that the rest promised to Joshua is ultimately found in Jesus Christ. How are we to find our rest in Christ? In what ways are you resting in Christ today?
