Our Mission Statement:

We are called to love, worship, and serve as we seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

In accordance with Governor Northam's most recent order, no in-person meetings are allowed in the church building, parking lot, or anywhere else on church property. This statewide ban is currently scheduled to be lifted on June 10th unless ammended. Fortunately, Gum Spring UMC does have the capability to stream services on-line. Therefore, all worship services are available on-line.
