For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. Jesus himself is the chief cornerstone. Ephesians 2:20

Become a part of the new and exciting church building project! To help raise money for the building fund, we are inviting you to buy a brick!

These bricks will be used in a special walkway so that in the years to come, you will be able to bring your children and grandchildren to the “Walkway” to see your name and their names as a permanent legacy of Gathering Community Church.

You will be able to create your own message on your brick. What a great way to be remembered and to acknowledge a special time in your life. By filling in the order form and returning it with your paid check to Gathering Community Church you will be contributing in a special way to our new church home.

Brick purchase form and contributions can be mailed to:

Gathering Community Church PO Box 1813  Murrells Inlet, SC. 29576
