Missions

"...and as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news." Rom. 10:15


What would it look like if each person at GT decided to live a fully missional life? Would every person in Reading be fed and clothed? Would the sick be cared for? Would the lonely have a friend? Would our complaints be quieted and our complacent living banished? Jesus met people where they were at. We want to do the same, starting in Berks County. Our mission is to serve in our community. We love to partner with others and allow God to use us as a world-wide team of Christ-followers. GT Missions supports 70 missionaries all over the world. We are blessed in America and we can celebrate our blessedness by sharing it with others who are less fortunate and impoverished.

AT GT, WE STRIVE TO BE A CHURCH COMMUNITY THAT REACHES OUT TO THOSE IN NEED BY LIVING BEYOND OURSELVES.

If we would give of our love, time and resources…
If we would enter into community with others, pointing towards hope…
If we would pray for the continuation of following in God’s wake…
Then we would fulfill Jesus’ mission.
That’s our heart.

PRAY.

PRAYER BANDS | Our missionaries and Christian workers locally and around the world rely on our prayers as they face incredible challenges, opposition, and often danger and persecution. By joining prayer efforts with one of our prayer bands, you will be informed about regular prayer needs for the missionaries in that region, and be invited to special gatherings to meet with missionaries when they are in our area. To join a prayer band, stop by The HUB or email GO@gtaog.org.

Spruce Lake 2019

July 28, 2019 to August 02, 2019
Spruce Lake Camp
This is a unique opportunity to let God use your time, your hands and your heart to make an eternal difference in the life of a child, teen or adult with a disability and their families. You may be a companion to a child or adult with a disability for the entire retreat. If so, it will be your job to be a friend, giving the gift of your time and love. STMs eat meals with their assigned family and join with them in most program activities. You may also serve in a program area assisting with art, recreation, music or the children, youth or teen programs. Program STMs will serve and/or lead in a specific program area during the day and evening (with an afternoon break). Through the simplicity of your service, whether you are a family or program STM, you will have the opportunity to build relationships where you can share the gospel and help others find hope in Jesus. No previous experience with disability? No problem. We fully train every STM before Family Retreat begins – there is nothing to fear!
