Perhaps You Have Been Seeking a Place Where...............
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 ther 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.

PETER MAYER in Concert at Our Church Saturday, October 11
Our friend Peter Mayer (singer-songwriter and guitarist) is returning to Gilford Community Church to present another wonderful concert on Saturday, October 11, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance from the church office for $10.00 a person ($15.00 at the door).
Singing from his repertoire of original songs, acoustic music and contemporary folk music, Mayer writes songs for a small planet - songs about inter-connectedness and the human journey; songs about the mystery and beauty of the world. Whimsical, humorous and profound, his music breaks the boundaries of "folk" and transcends to a realm beyond the everyday love song, to a place of wonder at the very fact of life itself.
"Peter Mayer is a magician,,,,,(his) universe is full of metaphor and meaning, story and symbol - everything contains more than meets the eye." - Bill Reed, Music Editor, Colorado Springs Gazette.
"His guitar work is breath-taking, his lyrics mind-spinning, his singing soul-soothing and his feet-on-the-ground optimism nothing short of healing." - Marilyn Rea-Beyer, Music Director, WUMB Radio, Boston,
"Mayer's songs are crafted like Shaker furniture, with no place for superfluous embellishments or throwaway lines....(his) fluid, clean, and tremendously intriguing guitar playing is topped with warm, rich vocals." - Acoustic Guitar Magazine,
Mayer started touring full-time in 1995 and had gradually amassed a dedicated, word-of-mouth following, selling out shows from Minnesota to Texas, New England to California. He has eight CD's to his credit (his latest, "Third Street" will be released this fall).
