In addition to traditional worship each Sunday, we have multiple special services throughout the year, both indoors and out. These may involve music, drama, dance, and lay leadership. We began a community Thanksgiving Service again in ‘15, and we are returning to Granada Park in ‘16 with Easter’s SonRise Service.
We focus support on Pensacola United Methodist Community Ministries (feeding the homeless, supporting their thrift store, and special projects). “Mission Moments” each month expose us more fully to organizations we support in the community. We are planning both “in-country” short mission trips and a trip to Costa Rica to supply books to schools in ‘17.
“Non-religious” concerts, festivals, dinners, and other events for our neighbors occur each year. We will continue to provide Southern hospitality to those who visit us here! GSUMC shares its city block with several organizations: Alcoholics Anonymous, Gulf Coast Chorale, Korean Church Ministry, Lighthouse Private Christian Academy, and Pensacola District Office, United Methodist Church. We are blessed to have these resources and welcome our community onto our campus should groups or events need space.
Classes on life skills and current events, in addition to spiritual growth and Bible studies, are offered at the church and in homes. Prayer is an important part of our church life. You may access prayer support by a call or through this website.
