United Methodists believe that each of us is called to participate in the outreaching ministry of Jesus Christ. Putting our faith into action is at the very heart of our Christian calling.
Foster Care & Support
Nearly every day, children in our community are rescued from abusive or neglectful situations. Gainesville First is dedicated to being a place where those children and their foster families can find support.
Great Day of Service
The people of Gainesville First serve our community for the Great Day of Service. In 2017, the love of Christ was shown as over 350 volunteers completed 37 unique service projects in the Gainesville/Hall County Area.
Great Day of Service Golf Tournament
The Great Day of Service Golf Tournament directly funds the Great Day of Service and other local outreach ministries. Join us for a fun day of golf, and leave an eternal impact on Gainesville!
Baker Glover Community
The Urban Ministry offers a weekly After School Program on Mondays during the school year where elementary-aged children are bused from their neighborhood to the church for a time of recreation, devotion time, and one on one tutoring. We also have several events every year for the children and their families which consists of a School Supply Drive and Handout, Back to School Cookout, Christmas party, and a week-long Soccer Camp. Our wonderful volunteers foster positive and lasting relationships with the children.
Baker Glover Community Center
Gainesville First has partnered with the Path Project to empower kids and students in the Baker Glover community through relationships and education.
In 2018, we are opening a Community Center in the Baker Glover Mobile Home Park to provide programs that are designed using research-based best practices and are led by certified teachers and youth development specialists who serve alongside incredible volunteers. We will offer onsite programs including Preschool Mommy and Me/Story Time, Elementary Homework and Reading Clubs, Middle and High School Leadership Clubs, FCA Soccer Teams and Summer Camp opportunities.
