Compass sessions begin Wednesday, September 11, at 5:30pm. From 5:30pm – 6:10pm, you will sample our caterer’s culinary artistry ($7 per person). Our feature program will then run from 6:15 – 7:00pm.


Our focus this year is on Bible study with complementary sessions interpsersed throughout our run. Do follow the Holy Spirit to GPC’s new Warren Fellowship Hall in the new education building to participate.

GPC welcomes Donald K. McKim who will present:

October 23: “Moments with Martin Luther.” In preparation for Reformation Sunday on October 27, we will consider the theological ideas Luther emphasized which were catalysts in launching the Protestant Reformation.

October 30: “Moments with Dietrich Bonhoeffer.” We will examine Bonhoeffer’s life and main themes in his Lutheran-based theology which have had a world-wide influence on disciples of Jesus Christ in today’s world.

November 6 in the sanctuary: Dr. Jerold Teachey will present “Choosing and Implementing Music for Advent at GPC.” The program will be presented by Dr. Teachey, organist Dr. Alex Benford, and selected Chancel Choir soloists. They will explore the planning of music for the Advent season, outline the historical perspective of that music and its composers and perform examples of music for Advent.

The next two weeks (November 13 and 20) will have presenters who will address historical and current Advent perspectives that explore our Christian faith and the glorious birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ. That theme will be completed at our last session before Christmas (after the Thanksgiving break) on December 4.
