Connect with Us


At the heart of Jesus’ message is a radical welcome extended to ALL people to draw near to God and to one another. Offering warmth and care to all who enter our doors, as well as to those who have yet to step foot on our campus, is an essential part of what it means to for us to connect intentionally at First UMC Gainesville.


Pastor Beth's Welcome


Often our culture defines the church according to a building or the hour of 11:00 a.m. Sunday morning, but what if you could find a community of people who believed the church was a catalyst for change? 

What if Church was more about working together to make a difference in our community than just meeting together for an hour a week? 

As a congregation we long for all to experience the Open Hearts. Open Minds. Open Doors. of God’s Church. 

We don’t “have it all together,” but we have more together than we ever could on our own. I hope you’ll join us as Jesus leads the way in finding joy and meaning on the journey!
