No matter your stage or season of life, we want you and your family to join us! You're always welcome here at Guilford College UMC.
The GCUMC Preschool is an incredible place for kids to grow, learn, and engage!
We offer a developmental curriculum which presents both structured and non-structured activities, affording the children a wide variety of hands-on learning opportunities throughout the day.
The heart of children's ministry at our church is to teach kids about who God is and how His word applies to their lives in creative and memorable ways. Through engaging teaching, supportive environments, and close knit small group classes, we guide kids towards a better understanding of what it means to have a real relationship with God. We want kids to know that the Bible is full of interesting stories that matter in their lives today, that fun and games are definitely allowed at church, that worship can be full of loud music and silly dancing, and that there are adults in the church who truly want to love and lead them closer to Jesus. In other words, we want them to know that where God is, life is a lot more fun!
If you spend any time around our church at all, you'll quickly learn one thing: we love students. They're smart. They're funny. They're bold. And they're bursting with potential. We truly believe that the middle and high school students in our midst are world changers in the making.
That's why student ministry is such a huge part of what we do at our church. We want to guide our students in developing a personal faith in Christ as they step into their specific roles in the story He's writing with their lives. We work hard to create environments that engage students in good conversation about God, encouraging them to ask questions, search out answers, and truly learn to listen to His leading in their lives.
Navigating life is better when someone's with you on the journey. In the years after high school - whether that means work, college, or whatever - we're here for you.
Our Young Adult and College crew meets weekly for faith, food, & fellowship. We'd love to see you there - check out the Events page for details.
Don't worry, all the good stuff at our church isn't just for the under 25 crowd! We have plenty of engaging events and gatherings designed to build the faith and community of our adults as well. Young or old, single or married, man or woman—we've got a place for you!
"The greatest among you shall be your servant." - Matthew 23:11
At Guilford College UMC, we take these words to heart and respond by serving in our neighborhoods, city, region, and world. You'll find us mentoring students from local schools, repairing local homes to make them safe & dry, travelling to areas impacted by storms, and partnering with sister communities in Africa. You can find weekly and quarterly opportunities to join us on the Events page.
From September to May, we gather on Wednesdays starting at 5:30pm for a meal before starting our small group meetings, choir practice, and other ministries.
