CHILDREN AND YOUTH
At Gibsonville United Methodist Church, we believe mission programs help children develop stronger relationships with God and with each other. We have developed a very active mission program for our children and youth, focusing on both short-term and long-term projects serving both people around the world and in our own backyard.
