Fall 2019 Info and Welcome!

Welcome to GCF!

Whether you’re new to GCF and trying to figure us out, or you’re a seasoned regular and you know the drill, we are excited to have you with us as we embark on another year of learning and growth through Bible study, prayer, fellowship, and social activities.

Bible study is the core of what we do at GCF. We have Bible study every Monday from 7:30 pm – 9 pm. We usually meet on-campus in Anabel Taylor Hall in the auditorium. At Bible study, we usually mingle, sing worship songs, break into small groups for study, gather prayer requests, and close with announcements, snacks, and more mingling. This fall we will be studying 1 Corinthians. If you are interested in leading study and/or helping with snacks, please feel free to  email Sharon Lampman (sharon.lampman11@houghton.edu), our Bible Study Coordinator.

We also have a weekly prayer/fellowship meetings for Guys and Gals. Ladies’ meet every other Wednesday from 7:30 pm – 9 pm to drink tea, fellowship, and pray. We pray through any prayer requests from the group as well as broader themes/people/topics we feel compelled to pray about. Email Haley Rylander (hrr53@cornell.edu) for more information. Guys meet on Thursdays from 7:30 pm – 9 pm. Typically we read through a book together then meet to discuss the chapters read, pray, and fellowship. Email David Limbaugh (dglimbau@buffalo.edu) for more details.

As our name suggests, we are most certainly a fellowship, and with that comes lots of opportunities for social gatherings and fun adventures. Also, next Saturday, September 14 there will be an outing to the Ithaca Farmers Market where we hang out and eat things we find at the Farmers Market. If you are new to Ithaca, the Farmers Market is a very Ithacan institution, and sure to be a treat. Come with petty cash and an empty stomach, and you’ll leave with no cash and a happy stomach. More details will be sent out to the listserv as the date approaches!

Later in the semester, we will have our annual Fall retreat, tentatively planned for October 18-20. We don’t yet have everything planned for retreat, and if you are interested in helping to plan retreat, we would greatly appreciate your help! We usually leave on a Friday around dinner time, get to Cortland Bible Camp Friday night, and stay until Sunday lunch. If you are new and/or uncertain about committing to a weekend retreat with us, don’t worry! We plan it for later in the semester intentionally so that you have an opportunity to get to know us better before committing. Please contact cornellgcf@gmail.com for more information or to join the planning committee.

We hope to see you at our upcoming events!
