Opportunities throughout the Week & Year



Our Wednesday afternoons and evenings here at GUMC are filled with various ministries.

  • Blessed Community - We begin with a community meal served at 6pm for a freewill offering.   You can come early to help with       preparation, stay late to help with cleanup, or just come for the food and fellowship! This is a wonderful chance to get to know other members of this faith family.

  • MUSIC: Choirs meet on Wednesday nights either before or after the meal

    • 5:15-6:00pm Radiant Ringers bells (downstairs bell room)

    • 5:30-6:00pm Praise Choir (in the chapel). Their primary practice is Sunday at 9:15am

    • 6:30-7:15pm Carillon Choir bells (downstairs bell room)

  • T.A.G. “truth and god” program for 5th-8 th grades meets from 6:30pm-8pm for devotions, Bible studies, games, and more.  Visit the Youth page for more information about these activities.
