This Week @ GIPC

General Announcements 

The Outreach Commission is conducting a survey of the community at IslandFest to learn what the community knows about GIPC and would like to see in a church. We are also conducting a survey of our congregation to insure we understand the desires of our internal community. There are two ways you can take the survey: online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Z6PK87R, or complete a paper copy available from our ushers. Please be sure to complete all eight pages if you take the survey online. We are providing a box at the Crossroads for completed surveys. Responses are due by June 15. Results of the survey will be shared.
 
Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 24, 10:30am in the Fireside Room. York Connection will hold a Brunch and Learn, THE ART OF LIVING ALONE: LET’S TALK ABOUT IT, led by Helen Morrison. This seminar is a follow up to the one held in April and will be interactive, discussing topics such as: What would you share with someone who is new to living alone? How do you handle loneliness?
