Believe….1st Timothy 4:10

That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our home in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who  believe.

We are blessed by the body of believers in our community.  From the neighborhood in West Willow Street who gather each year for a fun fund raiser blessing others, to friend & family gathering at a home in Millersville to bake and deliver sweet treats.

God’s love shines brightly through the labor of others.  Thank You!

Penn Manor Girls Volleyball All-Stars on and off the Court

WOW, GCCM families are blessed by the energetic Penn Manor Girls Volleyball Team.   The JV & Varsity girls bonded on October 5 by skipping practice to lend a helping hand.

Half  the girls provided lawn clean up for a family which included weeding flower beds, gardening and pruning.  They even recruited an energetic Dad to haul all the lawn clippings to the dump.  Take a look here…

The other half of the team provide wood chucking and wood stacking for another family with a fallen tree.  The girls moved and stacked wood for the winter heating season.  Friendships and muscles were strengthen.  Take a look here…

After resting over the weekend the girls picked back up on Monday morning preparing twice baked potatoes and home made apple sauce.  Grace Cancer Care families will enjoy their hard work.  Take a look here…

Finally, during their volleyball games the girls collected financial donations to contribute to Grace Cancer Care Ministry.  100% of their donations will directly impact families in the Penn Manor School District in a cancer journey.

Caring and compassion were evident as they worked together as  “One Team” to complete all the tasks. We are overwhelmed with their generosity, commitment to community and hard work.

Thank you Penn Manor Girls Volleyball, Coaches and Parent Volunteers!

It’s  great to live in Comet Country!

September 2017 Update

Matthew West sings this song:  If not us, then who, If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something, yeah
If not now, then when, Will we see an end
To all this pain, Oh, it’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something

GCCM continues to reach out into our community with caring volunteer servants.  We have faithfully served 79 families in the Penn Manor and MCC community since 2012.  Cooking, driving, cleaning, praying, sharing, hand holding, mowing, raking, knitting, sewing, loving and caring for families in a cancer struggle.

Many families have found GCCM to be a great ministry to teach their children how to step-out in faith and share God’s love with family, friends and strangers.  Blessings flow in both directions when serving others.

Thank you to ALL the GCCM volunteers for you continued service.

Thank you to all the families that allow us to share God’s love through actions of time, talent and service.

Current needs are:  table ready meals, gas cards, soups, local drivers and prayer partners

If you would like to know more about GCCM, please contact Julie Ehrgood, Shelby Foster, Carol Bond, Joni Brandy, Donna Tallarico or Laura Henry.
