GUM Teams Black Red.png
 

Many of our teams, groups, and committees are open to any who wish to be part of making ministry happen:

 

Open Door Committee

Members from the Open Door Committee got together and painted these doors to represent GUM’s inclusive atmosphere and acceptance of all God’s children. Three points on these doors the committee would like to state:   FOR EACH OTHER:  We welcome all to share in the worship, fellowship, leadership, ministry, responsibilities, blessings and joys of our congregation.   FOR OUR CHILDREN:  To provide them a safe haven, where they will always feel welcome, valued, and cared for as they grow up.   FOR THE WORLD:  To intentionally welcome every person, both inside and outside of our church building. To embody what we hope to see in the world.
