21 Days of Prayer

The more time you spend with something or someone, the more confidence you build in it. The same is true for God. The more time you spend with God, the more your faith in Him will grow. We have made it a priority to seek God first in prayer. We invite you to join us in 21 Days of Prayer as we faithfully seek God first, trusting in His power alone to create lasting impact in our lives, our church and our world.

Christmas for Kids

Make Christmas Merry for Kids in Our Community

This year we have about 400 Christmas gifts needed for children both in our church and our Galloway community. If you would like to purchase a gift for a child in need, it’s so easy to do! Stop by the Christmas trees by the Information Center and choose a card or two. The card will show you the age of the child and a gift they have requested. You then purchase the gift, wrap it, and bring it back to the church by December 13th so we can get all the presents distributed in time for Christmas. It’s that simple!

Coats for Kids

GT partners with Dove, Inc.

GT is an official drop-off location for winter gear to be distributed by Dove, Inc. Please bring your new or gently used coats, hats, gloves, and scarves to GT and drop them off in the containers at the Information Center. Local partnerships take care of cleaning all items before Dove distributes them. Thank you for your contribution to making a difference in the lives of children and adults this winter.

The last day to drop off your donation is Sunday, November 27, 2016.
