GPC believes that education is central to the faith of its members. We believe that our faith in Christ is a gift from God, and that God has given us the ability and the desire to understand that faith. That is not to say that our understanding is optional. Rather, the gift of faith gives us the freedom and the responsibility to participate in thoughtful engagement with our church and our world. Therefore, the mission of Christian Education at GPC is to provide a basis for understanding Scripture and the reformed faith, as well as opportunities to look critically at that faith and at the world we live in.
Our Associate Pastor Rachel Vaagenes leads many of these programs, with the help of Rev. Murray, the Adult and Children’s Ministry committees, parents, and teacher volunteers, among others. As a body we strive to bring the light of understanding to our faith in Christ.
We offer a variety of opportunities for education for different ages. Find out more by clicking an age group below.
Our church will welcome people at all stages of their journeys of faith from those seeking to learn something about Christianity to those steeped in church history and theology.
