Our Mission Statement:

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


We worship at 8:45 am and 11:00 am each Sunday. Sunday School is at 9:45 am every Sunday. Nursery care is available during each service and during Sunday School.


During the 11:00 service, we have a children’s message which usually is an age-appropriate version of the pastor’s sermon in a “story time” setting. Following the children’s message, we invite children ages 3 to 6 to go to “Children’s Church” to learn more about growing in Christ.

We celebrate Holy Communion (open to all seeking the presence of Christ) on the first Sunday of each month. We have Sunday school classes for all ages every Sunday at 9:45 A.M. This is a great way to get to know other members of the church while learning important lessons from the bible.

If you live in the Gum Spring area or if you are planning a visit, please feel welcome to attend any of these services. Wear comfortable clothes. You will be greeted with warmth and joy and you will want to return again and again.

Inclement Weather Policy

Information will be sent to the "News" e-mail list, posted on Facebook, and available on the church voicemail. In case of power outage or inclement weather, please make safety your priority.
