Our Mission Statement:

We are called to love, worship, and serve as we seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our Church

Gum Spring UMC is a community of loving, faithful Christians. Come join the family of God!


Gum Spring United Methodist Church has been serving the Gum Spring area since 1857. Located in Louisa County but very close to Goochland County, we’re about 20 minutes west of the Short Pump area, and about 45 minutes east of downtown Charlottesville.

Our Worship Services are at 8:45 am and 11:00 am each Sunday.
Sunday School classes for all ages are at 9:45 am every Sunday. Nursery care is available during each service and during Sunday School. We celebrate Holy Communion (open to all seeking the presence of Christ) on the first Sunday of each month. Please click the Calendar tab for more detail and holiday schedule changes.
