A Family of Programs

Since our founding as the Hennepin County Sunday School Association in 1905, GMCC has continued to be a changing, resilient and forward-looking faith-based organization. Our roots in religious education and workshops have since grown into advocacy, action and a family of human service programs, including Division of Indian Work, Minnesota FoodShare, Kinship of Greater Minneapolis, Urban Immersion Service Retreats, Metro Paint-A-Thon and Clinical Pastoral Education. GMCC NEWSLETTER
