No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey – you are welcome here.


Our spiritual community of more than 700 members embraces diversity, practices inclusiveness, extends compassion and engenders justice through the church’s numerous service and outreach programs. Our church compact best reflects our spiritual beliefs and practices:

“We  join as a spiritual community… to worship God, however known… to welcome into our church those of differing understanding and theological opinion… to learn from our religious heritage, yet to grow by seeking new dimensions of truth… to follow, even imperfectly, the way of Jesus in personal involvement with each other, and … to act in Christian concern for the welfare of all people.”

We are an open and affirming church, which means that we welcome all people regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression into every element of church life and leadership. (For more information, visit

The United Church of Gainesville provides a variety of programs that support personal and spiritual growth and encourage community-building for adults, children and youth. In addition, UCG offers numerous opportunities to practice “theology with our sleeves rolled up” through the church’s outreach and social justice programs.

Join us for Sunday morning worship at 9:15 & 11:15am.
Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.
