GCC is happy to be a part of another year of Hands of Peace!  Hands of Peace, founded by GCC member Gretchen Grad, is an interfaith organization developing peace-building and leadership skills in Israeli, Palestinian and American teens through the power of dialogue and personal relationships.  This summer, during the 8th Hands of Peace Summer Program, Hands of Peace will welcome 21 teens from Israel and Palestine who will stay with local host families, and will also involve 20 American teens in this coexistence learning experience.  Hands of Peace participants and families will attend the Sunday, July 25th Worship Service at 9:30am, and will also be in and around GCC for many of their summer program activities.  If you would like to learn more or get involved with this unique local organization, please see their website www.hands-of-peace.org or call Executive Director Julie Kanak at 224-406-5045.
