Pray as we search for a new pastor. Pastor Scott Crook, who came with his wife and four of their children in 2014, 2014.

What is the church mission statement?

To know him and make him known

Has your church recently celebrated a milestone event?

We will be celebrating our 60th birthday in fall 2024. The celebration is still in the planning stages, but it will most likely be a dinner with a program reminding us to carry on as we trust God in his faithfulness.

The past two summers GBC has co-hosted with another local church an “End of Summer Celebration” in the town park on an August evening. They invite the community to enjoy a free meal and activities for all ages such as laser tag, bounce houses and axe-throwing. The evening concludes with a broadcast movie and fresh popcorn.

GBC hosts “Trunk or Treat” for the community. This is one of the decorated trunks from the 2023 event held Oct. 31. “We try to ‘capture’ the event and use it to remind people that Jesus loves them as we pass out candy to visitors to the church parking lot,” says Pastor Scott Crook. Photo: GBC
