Holy Week at GCF: Phai no: An Ev eni ng of Worshi p
Mark your calendars for our next Phaino: An Evening of Worship which will be on May 1st. “Phaino” comes from the Greek word φαίνω which means to shine, or to give light, or to bring light. Every Phaino has its own theme and its own distinct worship experience geared to challenged us to phaino (shine) forth the Gospel of Christ as we share and show the love of God to those around us. Our theme for Sunday, May 1st is “Unplugged and In the Light.” We hope to have you and your family joins us from 6pm to 7:30pm. Children are encouraged to come and participate with their parents.

Becoming involved in a Bible study group is so beneficial to our spiritual growth. Not only do we benefit by encountering God through his taught word, we are also blessed as we converse and interact with others. To this end, we provide several weekly Bible studies, which are open to all, several times a week. (For additional Bible Study groups see our website or ministry table area in the sanctuary.) Reform - Adult Sunday School Class: The goal of this Sunday morning class is to experience the transforming power of God’s Word as it reforms our hearts & minds for the glory of God. “Reform” meets on Sundays @ 9:30am (during the 1st service). This class is open to all and you can join us anytime. The Starbucks coffee is always fresh! Tuesday Morning Romans Bible Study: Join Pastor Randy every Tuesday morning for a verse by verse study through the book of Romans. The Bible study is open to all. Wednesday Night Bible Study: Our Wednesday night Bible studies (see below) begin at 7pm and end at 8:30pm. These conversational and in-depth Bible studies are meant to inform our minds and strengthen our faith. Our Student Ministry youth groups meet during the same time and we also have a wonderful children’s program so it’s a great night for the whole family. Theology on Tap: Theology on Tap meets every Wednesday night after the Wednesday Night Bible Study (9pm) at Your Pizza Shop - 1200 8th Ave SW Largo, FL - to discuss Christian theology, culture, and missional living. The discussion topic for each week is posted on the Theology on Tap Facebook Page (find us!). See Pastor Heath for more details.
