The music ministry of GCC thrives because of donations each year to our Friends of Music Fund. While 80% of our expenses come from the annual operating budget, up to another 20% comes from this fund, making the difference between surviving and thriving. The Friends of Music Fund supports both our worship services and community outreach (concert series). From hiring musicians to play in the Peace Concert and providing an honorarium to the Glenview Concert Band for the July lawn concert to purchasing folders for the Chancel Choir and gloves for the Joyful Ringers to commissioning musical works dedicated to the ministry of GCC, the Friends of Music Fund has been a vital resource for many decades. To make a donation, simply send your gift to the GCC office clearly marked for the Friends of Music, or put a “Music Offering” envelope (found in the lobby kiosks) into the Sunday offering plates. Thank you for your continued support!
