GPC Youth

Greetings GPC families,                                      AUGUST 2020
We continue to try and be creative to find ways to stay connected to God, Our Church, the local community and each other in these difficult times, while still following recommendations to keep us all safe. With that said, please see below for some upcoming events for your children. Please RSVP and let us know which ones you’ll be attending so we can make sure we have enough supplies when necessary:

August 19th, 2020 @ 6:30pm-Packing BTS Teacher Gifts
We have decided to welcome the GCASD teachers back to school with a small gift and prayer. YOUTH GROUP aged kids are invited to come help pack the bags/ gifts in the social room. We can spread out by families, we will supply plastic gloves, don't forget your masks! 
August 23rd, 2020 @10am- Blessing Of The Backpacks
Calling all teachers, administrators, staff, nurses and of course students! Bring your backpack to church with you on this day whether you attend in-person or are joining us online. We'll have a special children's message for all those heading back to school. All Ages Welcome.
August 23rd, 2020 @ 3pm- Back To School Chalking
Over the past few years Southern Franklin County MOMS Club has done chalking at the schools the day before school starts. We are going to join them and can start chalking at the primary and move over to the elementary afterwards. Please bring chalk if you have it. We'll also have some extra. Plenty of room to distance, while still being “together”. 
All Ages Welcome

Sunday, September 13th @ 11am- Lunchbox Program
GPC is teaming up with an organization in Hagerstown called It’s A Blessing To Be A Blessing (you can check them out on Facebook!). They provide lunches to those in need. I will need to deliver them that afternoon around 4pm (anyone interested is welcome to deliver with me!). Any YOUTH GROUP aged kids that are interested in packing lunches can meet in the social room at 11am, following church service. We’ll provide gloves, don’t forget your masks! 

Sundays & Thursdays Ongoing- Story time @ 6:30pm
Join us online for a story and quick discussion. We are still looking for volunteers to read (we have plenty of books to share if you need one). This is a great opportunity for adults and even teens to get connected with our youngest members. All Ages Welcome 

Be on the lookout for information about Sunday School and Youth Group beginning in September! 

As always, if you have questions, please let us know. If you have ideas to share to help make our programs even better for our children, let us know that too! Thanks for your support!
