Come Visit. You’re at Home.
At Gaithersburg Presbyterian Church (GPC), we are united by faith in God’s promise, commitment to God’s purpose, and love in God’s presence. We experience the word of our Lord each Sunday through praise, prayer, and insightful preaching. GPC belongs to the Presbyterian Church, USA. Our congregation is multi-cultural and diverse in ethnicity, socio-economics, and politics. We engage in local service and are supportive of worldwide missions. Please join us for worship and community outreach. You will love being part of the GPC family!
Ministries for Teens & Children
Come and discover God’s path for you in a fun setting of prayer and service. Several youth groups and events designed for your age group are offered at GPC. And our Preschool & Kindergarten program at GPP&K is exceptional. Let us help you explore your spiritual journey with other children and teens.
Ministries for Young Adults
Let’s gather together to study God’s word through small group meetings, worship, education, and service. At GPC, we are excited about working with our Young Adults on their changing roles in family and with service to God and their community.
Ministries for Families
Fitting in our faith with everyday life can be challenging. At GPC we are working with our families during the different stages of their lives to easily incorporate faith, prayer, and service into hectic schedules. We meet in groups and at different events inside and outside the church to connect with one another and learn from others’ experiences.
Opportunities to Serve
Involvement in our local community and with our partners around the world is an important part of our worship to God. A core principle of GPC is to give back and get involved. We have many volunteer opportunities at GPC locally and through mission work abroad.
Praising God in song is at the foundation of GPC. We have several musical avenues for you to choose from in order to worship through song or with instruments. We invite all of you to get involved!
Ministries for Seniors
At GPC, our Very Important Presbyterians Seniors (VIPS) program is designed for those 50 years of age or older. Our VIPS group offers discussions, lunches, and special events with prayer and service to honor and worship God.
