Sunday Morning Groups

Get plugged in
to fellowship in the Word

On almost every Sunday morning, adults at GPC gather in between worship services, 9:30am-10:30am for fellowship, Bible Study, and prayer. This is our bread and butter.

Take a look at the groups currently meeting and what they’re studying and come join us on a Sunday morning! We know that jumping into a new group can be intimidating too, so contact Pastor Jay ([email protected], 901-754-5195 x112) to get plugged in.
