We are inviting everyone to worship with us both in-person and online each week.
Starting Sunday, April 11th, the 8 am Traditional Service is moving to 8:30 am, and will be held in the Sanctuary.
The 9:30 am Contemporary service, now known as CURRENTS, will be held in the newly Re-Freshed Social Hall.
The 11:00 am Traditional worship service remains in the Sanctuary.
For now, all music will be pre-recorded until the Virginia Annual Conference restrictions are lifted and we are able to sing together. Humming is encouraged. Masks and social distancing are also still required.
Worship services are live streamed on Facebook and YouTube Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:00.
Masks are required and we ask all attendees to maintain 6 feet of distance.
We ask everyone who plans to attend to let us know by filling out an event card at www.gbumc.life
OUR CORE VALUES:
We value and care about you just as you are! We seek authentic relationships with one another.
Everything happens around the Table. We understand the Table to be Christ's Table. All are welcome, regardless of your faith journey, age, gender, race, sexual orientation, or church membership.
Each day is a new opportunity to embrace life in Christ!
Service in the name of Christ is at the heart of being a disciple.
We believe the Bible is God’s word and through it, God reveals Himself to us, showing his character, and His will. Though written by man, the Bible is inspired by God and is without error. The Bible is our source of truth and guides us in our beliefs and lifestyle. It leads us to love God and others.
We Believe in the Holy Trinity, that God exists in three persons: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are equal in power and are one God.
We believe that salvation is a gift from God. We have not earned salvation, nor can we prove ourselves to be “good enough” through our actions to receive God’s approval. We are saved by grace through faith , and Jesus has paid the penalty of sin through his sacrifice on the cross.
We believe that God is the sovereign Creator. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus lived a sinless life in human form and offered himself as a sacrifice for humanity. He died on the cross and arose from the dead on the third day, revealing his power over sin and death. He then ascended to heaven where he resides with God the father until his return.
Loving God, we are so grateful for the many blessings you give to us. May these gifts we bring support your ministry in this church and in the world. Use them for your service, that lives and hearts will be touched by them. May they provide a path for others to know your love and become a part of your holy family. Amen.
