What to expectWelcome to our website! We hope this will help you get a feel for who we are as a church. So feel free to look around. There are sermons and events as well as ministries and contact information. Let me start out by letting you know what to expect on Sunday. We are now meeting at Immanuel Church located at 140 Bridge Street in Beverly. We started sharing this space with Immanuel at the beginning of January 2017. So things are new for us too!.

There is plenty of parking, either on the street in front of the church or in our parking area in the back of the church. There are a couple of signs that should help pont the way to our lot. If you park in the lot out back, you can enter the church through the back entry. Just look for the "enter" sign near the door.


Once you are inside you should see signs letting you know where to take your kids or pointing you to the sanctuary. Things aren't always clear, so please feel free to ask. And please let us know if there is anything we can do to make it clearer. Since we are new, there are still many things to improve.

We have three options for kids:  The Nursery (ages 0 - 2), The Preschool Class (ages 3 - 5), and our Kids Church (ages 6 - 11). Kids ages 6 and up join us for worship. We release them to their teacher after prayer. You can then pick them up after service at thier class, which located near Bradstreet Hall.

The Bible is the Inspired Word of God.Our BeliefsWe believe that both The Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, the only written revelation from God to man. The Bible is therefore infallible and the authoritative rule for faith and life (II Timothy 3:15-17, I Thessalonians 2:13 & II Peter 1:21).

There is one true God.
We believe that there is one living and true God, who exists eternally in three person: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; they are equal in every divine attribute, and while they operate together in the work of creation, providence and redemption they are distinct persons.

Me and NadinePrior to his role as founding pastor of Garden City Church, Pastor Rich (and Nadine) served at Calvary Christian Church in Lynnfield, MA for over 8 years. In his role as senior associate Pastor Rich was responsible for overseeing the evangelism and discipleship as well a ministry to married couples.

Rich is a graduate of Trinity Bible College (B.A.) and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (M.Div). He and his wife, Nadine, have been married for more that twenty years. They have three children: Adam, Gordon, and Victoria. They love pizza and movies, cookouts, and just about anything that makes them laugh.

In addition, Rich is an avid NY Giants fan and roots for the Yankees whenever he can. When he is not hanging out with his family you can find him enjoying a cup of coffee at Starbucks, The Atomic Cafe or even Dunkin Donuts. Pastor Rich loves reading the Bible and just about anything by John Piper, C. S. Lewis, Tim Keller, and Eugene Petersen. If you stole his phone you would find it loaded with music from Charlie Hall, Passion, Chris Tomlin, Jeremy Camp and maybe a song or two from Deep Purple, Jeff Beck, and Eric Clapton. You might even find somethng from Tony Bennett and Lightning Hopkins.

Thank youSupport Garden City Church reach Beverly, MA and the surrounding cites with the Gospel.

In order for GCC to infect the community of Beverly with the love of Christ, we need your support. We believe its Beverly’s time. Our goal is to shift the 90% of people in Beverly who do not attend or belong to a church to the 10% who do attend. There are 40,128 people who call Beverly their home. Almost 90% or 36,000 residents do not have a church family. GCC is a place to connect meaningfully to the body of Christ. If we are going to reach the 36,000 people who do not attend one of the 25 churches in Beverly, we need your help. You can help in three ways: Prayers, People and Provisions.
