FREE BBQ will be offered starting at 11am until it runs out. No tickets needed. Those worshiping at the 1045am service will be able to enjoy the BBQ or brats immediately after the service.

Please drop off a dessert or side-dish that morning anytime to the Adult Education Building where we will serve the food. The meal is "picnic" style so you will need to bring your beverages, lawn chairs and/or blankets to enjoy your BBQ/sides outside on the lawnThis way your whole family can enjoy the music and great November weather! The main course is provided and sides/dessert will be shared. 

The Arizona Cardinals vs Dallas Cowboys football game will be shown in the Family Life Center after the 1045 am worship service so you won't have to miss the big game and still will be able to be with your CGLCS family!

New Video: Empowered by the Holy Spirit


When you EXPERIENCE the love of Jesus, are EMPOWERED by the Word and the Holy Spirit, the Kingdom of God EXPANDS. 

Over the past year, we have been excited to begin missionional partnerships with non-profits in our community. 

There are two ways you can serve right here on our campus. First, we partner with a group called Pow-Wow (Produce on Wheels With Out Waste). It's a market where you can buy up to 60 lbs of fruits and vegetables for only $10. Second, each quarter we work with Family Promise. For one week we host up to four families in the evenings by feeding them dinner and providing a place for them to sleep overnight. Both of these opportunities are great chances for all of us to build relationships with people in our community while they are here on our beautiful campus.

Close to campus, we are blessed to be partnering with Starbright Foundation who helps abused children. Into the future, Starbright will be expanding their facility to accommodate more children at any given time. We look forward to supporting them both financially, in prayer and in hosting their educational workshops on our campus for community awareness.

In Mesa, we have officially launched La Mesa, a meal and worship offered to the community on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings of the month. It's a chance to come grow in mutually beneficial relationships with the working poor, homeless and Latino community. What a blessing to be learning, growing and worshipping Jesus together!

Globally, we have partnered with World Vision who helps communities around the world receive holistic change and hear the Gospel. It has been amazing to see you all step up big time as we have already sponsored over 100 kids in two major villages in Peru. We are also in conversation with an LCMS missionary in Peru who we are praying about supporting as a congregation. 

And we are looking forward to seeing how God reveals more and more ways for us to EXPAND the Kingdom starting in Gilbert and going globally with the Gospel of Jesus.

This Sunday we will have many of our missional partnership with us:
- Save the Family, Mesa
- Pow-Wow (Produce on Wheels With Out Waste), Phoenix
- World Vision, Seattle
- Family Promise, Scottsdale
- Starbright Foundation, Gilbert

We look forward to having you visit their tables in the courtyard to hear more about volunteering with them to help EXPAND the kingdom of Jesus.

And be sure to visit the World Vision table where you can write a letter to your sponsored child in Peru or begin a sponsorship for the first time.

It is also Confirmation Sunday at the 9am service. Please come support all of the kids getting confirmed.
Join the Journey!
