worshipers of all ages and backgrounds.


GUMC is composed of individuals with various depths of spiritual and discipleship roots, who desire to grow as followers of Jesus and witness in their community with radical hospitality, a love for all neighbors and a heart for social justice.


We lead our congregation in worship, deepening the connection to God, understanding the teachings of Christ, and ultimately to a vibrant faith. We have a long history of serving the people of Galena. Through the dedication of our pastor, staff members and volunteers, we are committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ, and are here to spread His message. Spiritual formation is interwoven into our life of worship, study, prayer and programming.
