Gainesville United Methodist Church

Being the hands and feet of Christ




Welcome to Gainesville UMC or "GUM Church" as we are sometimes known. 

"GUM Church" is a loving, welcoming and diverse congregation of people who desire to be

the hands and feet of Christ in our world.  

All are welcome here - we hope that you will join us and we look forward to getting to know you!


Worship Services

We offer three Sunday morning worship services - 8:00am, 9:30am and 11:00am. Sunday School is offered at 9:30 and 11 - check our out Worship page for more details on what each service has to offer.

We also offer a Wednesday evening service featuring contemplative praise music, a time of prayers, a short message and weekly communion. The service is at 7pm, each Wednesday, in the sanctuary. Come As You Are and Worship!


2017 International Mission Trip

We are excited to announce that in 2017, Gainesville UMC will be expanding our mission trip opportunities to include an international mission project in the Dominican Republic. Dates for the trip are June 24-July 1, 2017 and the trip is open to all adults and all students who will be in 9th grade and up in 2016-17.

Vacation Bible School

Our summer camp, Vacation Bible School (VBS), will be here before you know it! Our dates for 2016 are July 18-22, and our theme this year is Surf Shack! Registration and more information is available on our VBS page or you can contact our Christian Education directors by email.

Back to School Splashdown

Our Middle and High School youth are heading to Splashdown Water Park to celebrate the end of the summer and ring in the new school year! We have a pavilion reserved next to the parking lot and will meet there at 1 pm on August 14 for a cookout before heading into the park itself. Students will need to bring $10 to cover the entrance fee but we'll take care of the food. If you're bringing a first-time guest, they're free!  Sign-ups are going on now so let us know if you're interested!
