The GCCP Community Fair is an annual one-day event that occurs on Bonifacio Day where we welcome hundreds of families and individuals from surrounding neighborhoods and our wider spheres of influence to our church for an entire day of family-friendly activities in a fun and friendly environment.
GCCP values community and relationship building, and this event is an avenue for us to give people from all ages and backgrounds an opportunity to visit our church and get to know us in a setting other than worship services. At this event, attendees get to enjoy various types of food and beverages, games and entertainment, and items for purchase, many of which are self-produced by church members and volunteers or offered by non-GCCP affiliated suppliers.
We’re glad of your desire to participate by offering your products and/or services at the GCCP Community Fair this year. We hope the information in this packet will clarify your expectations and make your arrangements smooth and easy.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for any questions you may have.
