Ten percent of General Fund giving goes to support GCC Global and Local Outreach Partners and Programs. We support each of our Local Partners financially and we encourage our congregation to get involved by serving with our partners.

Metropolitan Ministries of Pasco

A faith based social service agency that provides basic resources for individuals and families such as food, clothing, shelter, educational programs, and spiritual support. GCC's support has helped to build the transitional housing and kitchen. We regularly collect food donations for their food panty along with clothing and personal hygiene items. Each November, GCC is the largest collector of Boxes of Hope for the holiday season. 

Volunteers are needed to assist with daily operations, sorting donations, processing clients and helping to serve hot meals on Tuesday evenings and Sunday mornings. Consider volunteering at Metropolitan Ministries in Holiday or organizing a food drive in your neighborhood.  Grow Groups are needed on the first Tuesday of the month to serve hot meals to local families.

Pasco Pack-A-Sack Food 4 Kids

GCC has partnered with Gulfside Elementary and Paul R Smith Middle School to stop food insecurity for chronically hungry children through the Pack-a-Sack program. Each week during the school year, we have a team of volunteers that create sacks of food that are given out on Fridays to provide food for the weekend.

You can get involved by volunteering to serve with the packing team on Monday evenings or by donating nutritional, child-friendly, individually packaged snacks, drinks and meals. Food donations should be dropped off at the GCC office during business hours or placed directly in the white collection barrels in the Kid Zone lobby during weekend services. For more information on what food items are needed click on the Back Pack Food Program image, please contact Patti Templeton in the GCC Office.
