This is how everyone will know that you are my disciples, when you love each other.  John 13:35




I welcome you on behalf of our church family at First United Methodist Church! We have been in the heart of the city of Gadsden sharing God’s love since the mid 1800’s. You will find this church to be a welcoming place, made up of people reflecting a variety of ages and races. GFUMC is passionate about providing opportunities for children, youth, young adults and seniors to learn and grow in their faith. We do this by offering variety of different Journey Groups, as well as traditional Sunday School. Some groups meet on Sunday mornings at 10:00, or on Wednesday nights at 6:00.  Still other Journey Groups meet on different days and times – some in-person, some by Zoom.  
We are also passionate about worship, providing an upbeat, contemporary worship service (Celebration Service) at 9:00 am on Sunday, a beautiful traditional worship service (Traditions) at 11:00 am on Sundays, and a casual, simple worship service on Thursday evenings at 5:30 pm. On Thursday nights at 6:00 we offer a service called MOSAIC that is geared toward those who have been hurt by church in the past or who have felt marginalized by church  (Mosaic meets at The Back Forty Beer Company, 200 N. 6th St., Gadsden, AL 35901).  

Your soul will be fed by worship at GFUMC!  
GFUMC is engaged in service to our community through several missions. It is our heart-felt desire to be “the hands and feet of Jesus” locally, regionally, and to the ends of the earth. We would love to have you come and join us on the journey.
