A Place of Refuge, Hope, and Purpose...for the last 125 years.
From Pine to Vine to current times...this is Gainesville.
Welcome to the Gainesville Church! Our church is in Georgia, located about 50 minutes north of Atlanta, GA, with easy access off I-985 (Exit 24). Just head east on Old Cornelia Hwy through Rabbittown and our church is just up the road on the hill. We would love to have you visit with us.
In order to keep you connected, we regularly post our recorded sermons, video announcements and e-Publications on this site.
Message from Pastor Juanfer
December 6, 2019
December is upon us, one more year has gone in the blink of an eye. My hope is that soon we can live through the words of Paul… “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Cor 15:52 KJV.
We are one year closer to this day, when dead will be no more and the former things are just that former, memories of how God has helped us overcome the world. One more year has gone by, and one more year we’ve been able to see the faithfulness of God. Onward! For God’s soon coming is sooner than ever.
Keep us in prayer. We’ve submitted everything that will need to be done to the insurance company. In the next week or so, we should hear back about them. As of right now, everything is at a standstill as the builders, the insurance company, and us review all the documents. Hopefully by next week, we can have a timeline for construction (reconstruction) and we will know when we will have our re-opening ceremony.
I’ve been asked several times, how you can help. First and most important of all, pray! Pray in the morning, noon, and night, any chance you get pray for our church, not just for our building, but for our church in general. Second, sign up for online announcements, if at any point we call for a work bee, please be ready!
Third… you can donate to our church building fund. One of the things that we want to fix is our sound issues. We know how many of you have issues with hearing…we know people are saying stuff, but you can’t understand fully what’s being said. We are working with insurance to make sure that when we go back into the sanctuary, those issues are gone. We know insurance will not cover all, as their job is to leave the church how it was, so we will be investing in extra sound panels so that when we come back we can all hear. So, if you’d like to help, consider donating to our church building fund If you have any questions please contact me!
Gina, Daniel and I, want to thank you for your gift and card! We want you to know that we love you and appreciate you! We are already planning when to take our family retreat! We will keep you updated and take lots of pictures! You have given us the gift of time and we GREATLY appreciate it! From our hearts to yours, please receive a big THANK YOU!
That’s it for now! I want to leave you with a challenge for the month of December, what if we read one chapter a day from the book of Luke! Let’s start getting used to reading and spending time in the word!
