Ministry Team Night at TGC

Ministry Team Night is the first Wednesday of each month, September through May (except for December).  A full meal is prepared at the church by our “MTN Meal Team” and is offered for $6.00 per person for middle school and up and $2.00 per child ($20.00 family cap).  The meal is served from 6:00-6:45PM. 


At 7:00PM, after enjoying dinner and conversation with other members of the church, you are invited to join one of the ministry teams as they meet for one hour.  During team meetings, children’s programming is offered so that all adult members of the church will have opportunity to participate in the ongoing work of the church through one of the ministry teams.
