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!

 Intergenerational Flag Football Game

It's fall again and you know what's in the air? A slight chill, the scent of pumpkin spice, and of course some good old gridiron football. Come join us on Saturday October 1st from 10 AM to 1PM here at the church for a battle of champions between our youth and adults. Even if you're not interested in playing, we'd love to have you here for a cheering section. We'll be making chili for lunch. If you plan to play, bring BOTH A RED SHIRT AND A BLUE SHIRT so we can designate teams. Also, bring your A-game!
