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.

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.
