GCW BUSINESS MEETING: Our GCW business meeting will be this Thursday, January 9 from 7:30-9pm at the Green House. All are welcome.
QUOTATION OF THE WEEK: This has been shared many times before, but we thought it worth sharing again, as we wrap up the Christmas season:
When the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,
The work of Christmas begins:
To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among brothers,
To make music in the heart.
