What to Expect

We want you to be comfortable while visiting Government Street UMC. Here is some basic information.

What should I wear?

Come as you are. On a typical Sunday you may see people in jeans, casual clothing or a coat and tie.

Where do I park?

We have some parking at the Government Street property which can be accessed from Government Street through the drive next to the red Parsonage, plus Greers has graciously allowed overflow parking in the front Northwest corner of their lot across Broad Street. For those with special needs, we have handicapped parking available next to the church on the West side of the sanctuary.

Where do I go once I’m inside?

Our 10 am service is held in the sanctuary behind the red front doors of our church building on Government Street. We have greeters who will be happy to assist you and answer any questions you may have.

What should I do if I have kids?

Children of all ages are welcome in the worship service and will be entertained by the drama skits depicting the Scripture lesson for that day.

How can I learn more about the church and its beliefs?

At GSUMC, we understand that each individual is on their own path to know and follow Jesus Christ. You may have just begun your journey or may have been serious student of the word of God for a lifetime. We invite you to explore the Bible Study class Wednesday at 6 pm which offer a round-table, in depth examination of the words of Jesus and how they apply to our everyday lives in these times.
