Many of our teams, groups, and committees are open to any who wish to be part of making ministry happen:
Church & Society
This team seeks to implement the United Methodist Social Principles by raising awareness and encouraging action in several different social justice areas, such as LGBTQ community advocacy and environmental healing and care for creation.
This team sets the priorities and direction of much of the mission and outreach areas of our congregation. They launch, encourage and support mission trips, raise awareness about mission giving opportunities, and stay connected with our missionaries and mission programs.
Children’s & Youth Ministries
Led by our Children and Youth Ministry directors, this team plans, implements and evaluates our ministry programs for children and youth, including Sunday School, youth group activities, and Vacation Bible School. Learn more about this ministry!
Jim DeYoung Men’s Fellowship
This group of GUMC men meets for prayer, fellowship and refreshments on the first Wednesday of each month.
United Methodist Women
Our chapter of this denomination-wide organization incorporates circles of women who meet monthly as well as congregation-wide gatherings for prayer, fellowship, learning and service. Learn more about this team!
Mom’s Bible Study
Every other Friday morning, moms with children at home meet to learn and pray together, and to support one another. This group particularly welcomes newcomers and is a great way to connect with others!
Other administrative committees are part of our United Methodist structure. Members are nominated by our Leadership Development Team and voted on annually at our Church Conference:
