Worship with Us

First United Methodist Church Gainesville offers two traditional services at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. every Sunday morning in the sanctuary.

Worship brings us together in community to share our praise and gratitude, our hopes and fears, and our joys and concerns with our loving God. We worship in a traditional style with a "creative twist" incorporating ancient and modern creeds as well as many styles of music from classic hymns, to blues and jazz, to Mozart and Handel, and everything in between. We pray that worshiping with us will be an experience that uplifts, challenges, comforts, and surprises all who participate, through the life-giving grace of Jesus Christ.

Everyone was so very warm and welcoming...Will be returning.
— Suzanne Ray

Communion is served every Sunday during our 8:30 a.m. worship services and on the first Sunday of each month at our 11:00 a.m. service. Our Communion table is open to all believers.

Children are always welcome in worship! If desired, childcare for infants through 4 years of age is available from 9:30 a.m. through the conclusion of worship.

Enjoy coffee and refreshments in the courtyard following each worship service. Sunday School for all ages starts at 9:45 a.m.

On Mondays, a 30 minute worship service with Communion takes place in the Fellowship Hall at 3:30 p.m. before a meal is served for those who are homeless or hungry. 

Come as you are - you are always welcome here!
