GCC has a special Bible memory program for all ages!

A brief description of the program can be found below.  We are calling it DOTM-Disciples on the the Mission.  You can get involved at any point and it is a program designed for all ages.  Please see Janet Chase for a packet or more information.

A healthy church is made up of spiritually healthy individuals. We are seeking to challenge each person to get into the Word on a deeper level with Scripture memory and meaningful accountability.

Here’s a brief overview of the program…

*There are verse(s) every month to be memorized (ESV version) on a certain theme.  As a family, you can work together – parents signing off on verse mastery for their children and even children signing off on verse mastery for their parents if Mom and/or Dad decide to get involved. You can take a packet as a couple and be partners in memorization.  You can take a packet as an individual and partner up with someone in memorization. A small prize will be awarded mid-way for completed monthly Scripture memory for all ages as you turn in your initialed monthly Scripture sheet, and a party will take place at the end of the round for those who completed their entire Scripture course.
