The mission of the Men’s Ministry is to provide men at the GCC with opportunities for service to God, the community, personal and spiritual growth, and fellowship among its members. The Men’s Ministry sponsors initiatives in the following areas:
- Serving Glenview Community Church
- Serving the wider community
- Social outreach
- Personal growth and fellowship
While our projects are primarily staffed with members of the Men’s Ministry, we welcome other GCC members and friends. Many of our service projects are structured so that youth in 7th grade and older can participate as well.
The Women’s Association
The Women’s Association brings together women in a fellowship of worship, education, and engagement in the life of the church, as it serves God in the community and throughout the world.
The Association is comprised of 9 chapters, and small groups of women ranging from 13 – 37 members. Each chapter chooses its own meeting schedule, a program of educational and social events, and service projects it wishes to pursue.
The various chapters are creative in ways for women to socialize while serving those in need within and outside of the GCC community. Activity examples include:
- Packing days at Feed My Starving Children
- The series of Myra Loris historical lectures/Luncheons
- Support charitable organizations through clothing drives, school supplies collections, Christmas gift collections
- Preparation of bag luncheons for the homeless
- Collection of Dunkin Donuts gift cards for homeless youth
New To You Resale Shop
One of the most impactful ministries of the Women’s Association is the New to You Resale Shop, located on the church’s lower level. The store offers on-trend, clean, and reasonably priced clothing and housewares.
A Women’s Retreat is offered annually offsite for either one or two days. The retreat is a time for women of GCC to be together for inspiration, relaxation, spiritual growth, and lots of fun.
Called to Care
Called to Care is a group of church members who provide spiritual care and companionship to other church members and friends in acute or chronic need. It offers members the opportunity to serve in a very real way and lets others know that we truly care about them. For more information about Called to Care, please contact the church office.
