Our Ministries

 

Prayer

At GMC, we believe in prayer. “The effective and fervent prayer of the righteous avails much” (James 5:16).  We offer several opportunities to gather with other believers for prayer:
 
Sundays at 9:00 am in the Church Office
Sundays at 10:25 am at the front of the Worship Center
Wednesdays at 2:00 pm in the Fireside Room
Everyone is invited to participate.  We not only pray for the concerns of the church but for those in the community as well.
 
You can email us your prayer requests at

Bible Study

The Bible is the only standard for our beliefs attitudes and practices. GMC prioritizes the teaching of God’s Word. We have Sunday morning Bible study classes for all ages.  Classes start at 9:30am.  Come and dig deeper into God’s Holy Word with us.

Fellowship

The Christian life is not intended to be lived in a vacuum.  We are created to serve Christ as part of a community of believers.  We are called to love one another, encourage one another, support one another, edify one another, submit to one another, etc.  At GMC we offer several opportunities to fellowship with other believers throughout the year, so that our relationships with Christ are strengthened.

Evangelism

GMC has a passion for the Gospel!  We have a rich history of promoting and supporting evangelistic efforts in our own community and throughout the world.  We believe the “Gospel is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes it” (Rom. 1:16).  At GMC, we LOVE telling others about the free gift of eternal life that is available to all who simply believe in Jesus Christ who died and rose again for our sins.  If you would like to know more about how Jesus can change your life, stop by or call.

Discipleship

The Bible says “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God” (Rom. 10:17). At GMC, we believe that faith for those who are lost to be saved comes by hearing the Word of God. And we believe that faith for those who are already saved, to grow up into spiritual maturity, also comes by hearing the Word of God. There is a distinction in Scripture between salvation and discipleship. Our task is to lead the lost to salvation and help believers grow in their faith and become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Prime Timers

Let’s Sew

 
Some of the women of the church gather together once a month to sew simple dresses, shirts, and short for girls and boys in other countries.  This is a great time of fellowship and ministry that gives clothing to kids around the world.  Much of the cloth and thread are donated and missionaries distribute the finished dresses and shorts on the mission field.  Last year in 2018, our ladies sewed 271 dresses, 110 shorts, and 23 shirts.  Dates and times vary so call the office to inquire of the next Let’s Sew.

Missions

 
We are not called the Missionary Church in vain.  Groveland Missionary prays for and financially support men and women as they minister to people here in America and around the world.  In fact, over 11% of our budget goes to missionaries.  We support 10 different missionary families in 9 different countries including Russia, Cyprus, Japan, and Greece.
