Perhaps You Have Been Seeking a Place Where...............
Your desire to serve others will be stimulated....
Your need to laugh will be well-received and shared...
Your grieving is comforted...
Your sorrows are lightened...
Your doubts are respected...
Your children are received and welcomed...
Your talents are nourished...
Your love or art and music is expanded...
Your reasoning is appreciated...
Your friendships are strengthened...
Your personal conscience is treasured...
and you receive respect just for being who you are.


Message from Pastor Michael Graham...
Churches come in a variety of shapes and sizes; what makes each place unique is the people gathered.

Churches are one of the few institutions where people of all ages play an important role. We share life toge Pastor Michael Grahamther and make the passage from childhood to adulthood in the presence of others. How wonderful it is to make the passage through life with people who care for you.

I love the intergenerational flavor of the Gilford Community Church; where young and old regularly come together, where children arenít spoken "to" but are invited to join in the wonderful conversation of faith. The enthusiasm of our children, the idealism of our youth and young adults, and the wisdom of our elders, all blend together to make this a vibrant, hope-filled community.
