FUMC GilbertOur History

A Rich History & A Brighter Future

Gilbert First United Methodist Church is rich in history. It began in 1907 as a small Sunday School sharing the Gospel with the farming community of Gilbert. We were officially organized as a church in August of 1915 with 11 members.

The buildings have moved a few times and the congregation has grown, but we continue to strive to keep the small town, family feel to our church.

We are a community of believers who come together in fellowship, worship, bible study, and friendship. Together we make up a family that loves and supports one another. We believe that we offer an activity that supports everyone, regardless of age, abilities, or preferences. We encourage you to consider finding a group or activity in which to participate. We know it will enrich your experience here.

Our church continues to grow its ministry and we are expanding our facilities in order to meet the needs of our family. We truly hope that you will consider becoming a part of our family and growing spiritually with us.
