Prayer and Outreach

This is a sample of our commitment to show Christ’s love to our neighbors.

In Touch Ministry-Prayer Request

Room in the Inn

This is a group of churches that provide a safe shelter, a meal, overnight lodging, and other amenities to those in our communities that are without permanent housing.  We support this ministry with our prayers and resources. We also volunteer in different service capacities, providing food when we can.  This ministry is in operation from mid November through March.

Taking it to the Streets

Becoming the hands and feet of Jesus, each year we assemble a team and go into the community to show Christ’s love by meeting the needs of our neighbors.  We have painted city parks, cleaned and landscaped around assisted living centers, helped the home-bound with yard maintenance, and so much more.  It is always an event where we are blessed more than those we help!

Community Thanksgiving Meal

Each year our GFUMC family and friends come together and prepare a Thanksgiving Meal for those in our community.  We host guests in our Family Life Center, and deliver to those who cannot join us.  We have the honor to serve over 1,500 meals on Thanksgiving Day to those with need.

A Night in Bethlehem

On a Friday night in December, in conjunction with Guntersville Downtown Merchants festival, we set up a scene from Bethlehem in our parking lot. More than 800 visitors come see sights and hear sounds of what it may have been like at the time of Jesus’ birth. After visiting the merchant stalls, and seeing the stable, guests are offered the chance to take communion, and talk with a pastor.
