Prairie City, Oregon

The GPCCA

The Greater Prairie City Community Association (GPCCA) was born as a non-profit 501(c)(3) out of the need to have a non-profit organization receive the generous donation of the iconic Methodist Church at the south end of the City Park. The church is now referred to as the Community Center. The GPPCA also committed to serving the needs of the community beyond just managing the Community Center building.

Recently, after a few years hiatus, the GPCCA is again active with a new crop of volunteers and purpose. We’re calling it GPCCA 2.0. The new websites and new streaming a/v equipment at the Community Center are just a couple improvements already available for the community.

Up and Coming Events!

Candidates Night: Tuesday October 18th at 7:00 PM

Come down to the Community Center and meet the candidates for Mayor and City Council. The candidates will answer moderated questions hosted by our high school students. There will be cookies and drinks, as well as an informal mingling with the candidates. You can get to know them and ask them your personal questions.


Christmas on the Prairie

Date has yet to be decided. It will either be the Saturday before Thanksgiving or the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Check again soon.

Community Center

Community Center

The GPCCA owns and maintains the former Methodist Church as a Community Center. Residents and others are encouraged to make use of the building for meetings and events.

We recently installed about $1,000 of upgrades to the audio/visual (A/V) system which already had a large projector and giant screen. We can stream content from the internet using a phone, laptop, or computer, via bluetooth or wifi. Play a DVD movie or an audio CD , and use the wireless microphonesi to MC your event through the jumbo speakers at the front of the assembly hall.

Greater Prairie City residents who would like to use the Community Center for an event or meeting can do so without a fee. We have suggested donations for use.

If you are not a greater Prairie City resident, we have reasonable rental rates.
