Gospel Community Church is a brand new church plant that is following God’s call to love and serve people in Santa Cruz and to share the good news of Jesus Christ!
In May of 2018, our small group began gathering each Sunday at Glenn and Jen Davis’ house to worship together and to seek God together as we began planning this new church. Every evening we shared a meal together and studied through the book of Ephesians, seeing what God’s plan is for his church. From the beginning we believed that God was calling us to be a light to our city and to start not only Gospel Community Church, but many other churches in our county. Our heart is to see new leaders trained to reach new people with the love of God.
After a few months, we moved the meetings that began in the living room out to the back porch as our group began to grow. As the group continued to form we prayed that God would provide the right people, a place for us to meet in Santa Cruz, and for financial provision. Over the coming months God answered all those prayers and we began renting our current location at the old “Circle Church” building on the Westside of Santa Cruz.
Our first service in our new location was on October 7, 2018, and our second service was launched on September 29, 2019. We are thrilled to have welcomed into our group many people from our new neighborhood, including many students from UCSC. We are praying that many more people would join our community over the coming years and, most importantly, come to know our Savior Jesus Christ!
If you are looking for a church or want to know more about Jesus, we hope you’ll join us!
