WHAT’S THE ADDRESS?
16127 Lee Highway, Gainesville, VA 20155
WHAT TIME IS THE SERVICE?
Sunday School is at 9:30am
Worship Service is at 10:30am
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE SERVICE?
Because God is so great, the worship of Him must also be great. We want to be a church that is both serious about God and happy about God. We pray a lot in our services, and we sing His praises, and we dwell on His Word. We kneel and we stand and we lift up our hands and we sing our hearts out. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper every week. And we take the Bible seriously and study it together. We don’t aim at entertainment but at worshiping and glorifying God. He is the spectator; we are the performers. God’s people need to come often to a place where they can be refreshed in the truth of His word. These are the goals of our worship service. Check out the "Who We Are" tab for more information.
People at GPC wear a range of clothing on Sunday mornings: Jeans to suits and dresses. Most people dress casually, but you won’t be out of place if you wear a suit or dress. For more thoughts on this, click here.
WHAT ABOUT FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN?
We value children in our worship services, and they are welcome to remain with their parents if so desired. However, we do have age-appropriate ministries available as well:
Sunday School classes are available from ages 2 through adult. At this time, there is no nursery available during classes, however, the nursery is always open for parents to use if desired. More information is located here.
Nursery is available during the worship services for children infant to age 4. The nursery is located on the lower level of the building across from the steps.
A private nursing room is available for nursing mothers to use if they desire and is located next to the nursery. Nursing mothers are always welcome to stay in the sanctuary as well!
Children's Sermon is available for children ages 4-10 and meets after singing and prayer during the sermon on the lower level. Children are escorted directly to and from the children’s sermon room.
GPC places an importance on church membership. In order to become a member at GPC you must complete the Inquirer’s Class (offered several times a year) as well as meet with the Session for a discussion of your testimony and a public profession of faith.

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
We love seeing new faces and having lots of volunteers! There are many different ways to get involved at GPC, from cleaning days to worship musicians to children’s ministries, many hands make light work! Some opportunities require church membership (all children’s ministries). If you are interested in helping out, please speak with any church officer or email the church secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
