Christian Women Fellowship

Join the VIPS for lunch and a program the first Thursday of the month. Gathering begins at 11:30, with the program starting at noon.

Other than Sunday morning worship, VIPS meetings are the largest and most welcoming gatherings in the church. VIPS excel in maintaining contact with and caring for one another, are creative in the variety of programs and outings offered, and enjoy a “favorite people” status with members of the Youth Group. The VIPS are also the most outreach-oriented and service-minded group in the church, second only to the Community Engagement ministry, making consistent, generous donations to the various missions of GPC.
