our ministries

"For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." ~ Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
We at Gulf Beach Presbyterian Church seek to answer God's call to service in a variety of ways.  From Bible study to shepherding team, and feeding the hungry, there are ways for each of us to serve.

Gulf Beach Presbyterian supports the work and ministry of Thornwell Home for Children. 

We at Thornwell Home for Children are so grateful to God for the provision given to this ministry through faithful people like you.  Thornwell is a community of believers that together seek to reach hurting children and families in need.

You have given children a safe place to live, grow and experience love. On Thornwell's campus in Clinton, SC, our residential program provides homes for children who cannot stay with their families for whatever reason.

Your support made it possible for 118 children and teens across Florida, Georgia and South Carolina to receive the help they needed at Thornwell  Home for Children.  You aren't just giving money.  You are giving HOPE.  Every gift to Thornwell helps children and families heal from past hurt and find hope for a successful future.  Your gift today will impact a child's life.
