Women’s Ministry 

Women need time to love and be loved, and learn aside other women. Gashland provides several opportunities for women to spend time together in Scripture, in prayer, and in fellowship. Be on the lookout each month in The Link Announcements for further details and upcoming event announcements regarding these various ministries.

Find a time that works for your schedule and come join us! Contact women@gashland.org for more info. 

Coffee Talk Gift Cards 

Women’s Ministry wants to provide free Starbucks gift cards in order to encourage women to invite women of Gashland to coffee in order to provide opportunity to connect with one another as sisters in Christ. Those gift cards are set out during Around the Table sign ups for the taking.

Men’s Ministry 

Men often face unique challenges and unique pressures from the world. It is important for men to be in relationship with each other as well, and GPC wants to help build those friendships of accountability and love.

Saturday Morning Bible Study

An early morning time to meet as men and study God’s Word together. Meets at 7:30 in the church library.

Men’s Fellowship Campfires

Monthly men’s campfires will be held on the last Saturday of each month between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM at the GEPC Pavilion. These fun evenings of food and fellowship are a great opportunity to spend time with old friends – and make new ones – while exploring the joy, risks, and rewards of walking with God in a community of men. All you need is a lawn chair, an appetite, and a desire to know God better! Questions? Please contact Chris Stackpole (c.stackpole@gmail.com or 817-223-0457) or Chris Taylor (christaylor90@att.net or 816-505-9443).
