Around the Table Sign Ups

GEPC ladies, Around the Table sign-ups are this Sunday during coffee hour and before/after second service. This occurs the last two weeks of every month. We invite women to share a simple meal and gospel-centered conversation in order to inspire each other to deepen our relationship with Christ. Join 6 women for a sweet time of fellowship. This month the Around the Table held at church for coffee will be Saturday, June 4. Please sign up! There are new sign-ups for new tables every month and a variety of dates and times available. Also grab a Coffee Talk card on us and invite an old or new friend to coffee!

Prayer in the Chapel | Wednesday Nights

Wednesday Chapel Prayer at 5:30PM – Throughout the coming months, please join in prayer in the Chapel. We will have a short scripture, update some prayer topics, then spend time meeting with the Lord. Come and raise your voice in the company of others who are seeking His presence. Contact Mark Lancaster or Tom Crossett with questions.

Summer Socials Sign Up!

Join fellow Gashland family members this summer as we look for ways to connect, to know, be known, and have fun together! Summer Socials are themed social groups that gather around a shared common interest. Our Summer Social Groups are as follows: Film Fanatics, Barista Bound, Exploring Eateries, Book Worm, Go Go Games, BBQ Bonanza, Nature Lovers, and Art for the Amateur (& the Expert). Go to gashland.org/summer-socials to get a detailed description of each group. Each themed social group will meet a minimum of three times (once a month) in June, July and August to explore their common interests. Each social group will have a general organizer, but the groups will get to determine how best to get to know one another and have fun together. Groups have 8-10 spots available, and depending on interest, there may be multiple groups for certain themes. Sign up by May 22th at gashland.org/summer-socials/
