Welcome to “Weaving”, an information resource for the 2017 – 2019 capital campaign of First United Methodist Church in Gastonia, NC.




August 9, 2017

                  THANK YOU for your faithful and generous response to our Weaving Campaign that will provide further outreach in downtown Gastonia by connecting Christ-Church-Community. The firm of ADW Architects is working to provide detailed drawings in order for Pinnix to begin construction. Construction will most likely begin in early 2018. 

                  Through your generosity, we are now at $4.8 million committed towards our goal! That is phenomenal. Thank you so much!

                  The Building Committee is hard at work. Our financing team is working to make sure that we end up borrowing the least amount of money possible; obviously the more investment we receive before construction begins, the less we have to borrow. We remain amazed by God’s grace and thankful for the way God is working through First United Methodist Church!



This is an exciting time at FUMC-Gastonia! Our church is growing, our ministries are connecting more and more people to the love of Christ and we are finding new ways to serve our community.

Through the blessings of God and the faithful support of our members and friends, we have built a fantastic multi-building campus in the heart of downtown Gastonia that provides beautiful spaces for worship, service to others, study, and recreation.

And yet, we realize our campus can be made even more welcoming and effective.  Through our shared commitment to this campaign, we will provide new space for ministry at FUMC-Gastonia and improve the safety and functionality of key areas of our existing building.

Take a moment to watch the video below, which explains the exciting vision we have for investing in the future of First UMC-Gastonia and our community.
