The Gold Country Community Parish (“GCCP”) is delighted to be a new member of the Meadow Vista Merchants Association. GCCP is a cooperative parish made up of three United Methodist Churches who work together to serve the communities of Meadow Vista, Colfax and Dutch Flat and the surrounding areas along the I-80 Corridor. The three churches are united in faith, love and service and support each other in a variety of worship events, fundraising activities, training events, and mission work.
Pastor Romy Velasco serves all three churches and resides in Meadow Vista. In addition to offering regular Sunday services at all three churches during the Advent season, our Parish will be holding the following events in December and January:
Gold Country Community Parish:

During this holiday season, we encourage you to seek out a spiritual home and find joy in serving your community. We always welcome you to any of these events or others listed on our website www.gccparish.com. We look forward to getting to know you better as we work together as the hands and feet of our Lord in our communities.
