WHAT TO EXPECT
Will I fit in? Will I feel comfortable and welcome? Will this be awkward? These are very real questions we all face when we step out and try a new church. It is not an easy thing to do. Congratulations! You have already taken the first step…you found a wonderful church to visit: Garfield Community Church. The rest is easy. You will fit in just fine because we are a bunch of folks just like you. We also want to fit in and feel at home and be loved, that’s why we ended up here at GCC. Check that one off. And don’t worry about feeling welcome…you will be deeply loved and that is the most comfortable feeling in the world. It is always a little awkward the first time anywhere but here, at GCC, those weird feelings will evaporate within moments of the first hello and the warm “welcomes” that embrace you. We are informal and friendly. We dress casual although some enjoy a more formal attire. It’s up to you. Whatever makes you feel comfortable is just fine. We have coffee and cookies to get things started and, afterward, we all seem to hang around, drink more coffee, talk, laugh and enjoy the warm fellowship. It’s just like family...well, that is what we are. When you are here you have come Home. We can’t wait to see you. We’ve been expecting you!
