Maturity Department serves to equip and help each member discover his/her personality, passion, and personal giftedness and place of Ministry within our church and community. It seeks to encourage members to dedicate their lives to Jesus Christ, and to enable members to develop the service ministry and the care ministry of the church. One of the primary responsibility of the Maturity Department is overseeing all the small group ministries of our church. Service Ministry is also part of our responsibility. Throughout the year, each small group will find opportunities for community service. Passing our flyers to the neighborhood, Angel Tree Christmas gifts for children, and sorting food at the San Francisco Food Bank are but a few of community services that we take part in. Caring Ministry serves the needs of members who requires special physical, emotional and spiritual care. Our special care team will provide home delivery meal service to those that are seriously ill or unable to prepare meals. Visitation to the seniors or the sicks is usually coordinated with our pastoral team. Ministry Department joyfully serves the body of Christ at Golden Gate.

The Maturity Department serves mainly in 2 areas:

  1. Small Groups
  2. Caring

Currently there are 21 Mandarin speaking small groups, 11 Cantonese speaking small groups, and 13 English speaking small groups, totaling 45 small groups. Small groups meet regularly once a week or twice a month, sometimes at church and mostly at different homes. They provide a place for members to fellowship, bible study, book, study, gathering, encouragement and simply helping each other. Members continue to build each other, care for each other and minister to each other. When there is a new friends or member that joins our church, we make every effort to enfold them into a small group as according to their language preference. Small group will provide an environment and opportunity for the members to fellowship and grow. Please click this link for a list of the small groups. The list contains meeting time, locations and studying or discussion topics. You are welcome to communicate with small group leaders by sending an email if you are interested in joining the particular small group. Small group leaders meet quarterly to share grace we experienced, problems encountered and to have prayer time together after our sharing.

The small groups serve in many areas of the Church ministry, including:

  • Tea Time Corner after every Sunday Services.
  • Annual Church Cleaning.
  • Pamphlets distribution for ACC at the beginning of every new season.
  • Ride Ministry for youth after fellowship and elderly after Sunday Services
  • The Caring Workshop had been provided, and will continue in the near future for training to equip coworkers to serve better in this area.

The goal of the Magnification Department is to promote and inspire the attendees of GGCC and incite all of us to worship and praise God as our purpose of living. The Department includes committee members from all three language services (Cantonese, English, and Mandarin). Our responsibilities include training and scheduling of worship teams and audio-visual personnel, maintenance of musical instruments, computers and sound systems, as well as general organization and maintenance of our worship inventory and facilities (Sanctuary and Gospel Hall). We are also responsible for training and scheduling of ushers and greeters for our Sunday worship services. It is our goal to organize musical events such as “Praise nights” and “Evangelical Musical Evening” in the near future, in order to encourage brothers and sisters to continue to learn about worshiping God as a life-style, and to use these events to reach out to our community.
