GatheringPoints of Service

GatheringPoints of Service (GPS) makes serving in the community simple for attendees of GatheringPoint Church. We aim to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ through serving others. To serve, we move beyond our building into the community to care for our neighbors in need.
