New Here?
Thanks for checking out Gaston Christian Church!
 
Whether you have joined us on a Sunday morning already or are considering visiting us on a Sunday morning, we are sure you may have a question or two! This part of the website is just for you. Think of this as a FAQ area for our church. Take a look around and if you still have questions please contact us with your questions.
Question: How do I get there?
Answer:  We are located at 5339 S. New Hope Rd., Belmont, NC 28012.  If you are familiar with the area, we are located about half-way between the Fish Camps and Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens.  If you’re not familiar with area, check out Google Maps Here
Question: What time should I get there?
Answer: Worship is at 10:30 (we have Bible Classes/Sunday School for children and adults at 9:30; we have coffee, donuts too!)
Question: What should I wear? 
Answer: You may come in casual clothes or dressed up. We don’t care. (Really, we don’t.)
Question: What will my kids do?
Answer: Your kid(s) will have the chance to attend a class grouped by age. In their class they will be taught a Bible based lesson by our Youth Pastor or one of our Awesome Kidz Block Teachers. For more info about what your kid(s) might do check out Our Ministries page. 
Question: Will my kid(s) be safe and well taken care of? 
Answer: Yes, your Kid(s) will be safe while they are away from you. All of our volunteers have had an extensive background check and are long-term members of our church.  During service there is designated security person who walks through the parking lot and walks through the kids ministry area to ensure everyone and everything is secure.
Question: What can I really expect when I show up? 
Answer: We try to have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.  People will say “Hi” to you, but you won’t be stared at or peppered with personal questions.  We sing upbeat, meaningful songs and have a praise band.  We take communion every Sunday.  We take up an offering (but you don’t have to put anything in … really, you don’t!).  We have classes for your kids, or they can stay in “big church” with you.  You won’t be yelled at, singled out, asked to speak or put in the spotlight.  You will be smiled at, spoken to, welcomed and maybe even hugged.
Question: What about communion and offering? 
Answer: We do take communion every Sunday (but you won’t feel out of place). Communion is passed to everyone in attendance and we believe that the decision to participate is between you and God (1 Corinthians 11:28).  We take up an offering (but you don’t have to put anything in … really, you don’t!).
Question: Can I bring my smartphone or tablet?
Answer: Absolutely!  We have wireless internet available for you to use. We use the YouVersion Bible App (a free App that you can find in your app store) to share our message notes each Sunday. 
Question: I have a question that is not listed here? 
Answer:  If you have another question that you want to ask you can visit our contact us section. From there you can fill out the form with your question and a Pastor will get back with you shortly. 
Question: what does the church look like on a Sunday morning?
Answer: It would look like something like this ….

Description of this Series:
 
Israel stood on the banks of the Red Sea; the Egyptian army bearing down on them, bent on destroying them and/or returning them to slave-status.  But God had a different plan.  As the waited to cross and as they crossed, Israel’s faith was tested and through that, gives us many lessons we can learn about God and His faithfulness.
 
With help and ideas from the same-titled book by Robert J. Morgan.

    Move Forward In Faith
    2 Corinthians 5:7 says "we walk by faith, not by sight." Oftentimes, I emphasize the "faith" part but don't miss the "walk" part. James, in his book, talks about "faith AND action." That's where we are in the Red Sea Rules ... "Move forward in faith with confidence," (RSR # 6&7)."05_ForwardInFaith" from 05_RSR by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018. Genre: Other.

    Pray and Be Still
    It is so simple (and yet hard): When we are in trouble, pray and be still before the Lord. I don't want to unfairly characterize you, but this is so often my problem ... I am not "still before the Lord." I still want to fix it, work it out, solve it ... and most times, rush into it "ahead of" the Lord, or at least before I've taken the time to pray and listen."

    Think More About God and Less About Yourself
    Too often, we are at the center of everything, even our troubles. We need to vacate that space and make God the center of everything. How can He be glorified even when we are in the middle of struggles?"02_NotYou" from 05_RSR by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018. Genre: Other.

    Right Where God Wants You
    "Dead End." Those words are so final ... or at least they sound so. Have you ever been at the end of a rope? Rock bottom? No way out? At a dead end? Slap out of hope? Have you ever considered that perhaps God put you there? Crazy, I know ... but you need to know, that's exactly where God put Israel! "01_RightPlace" from 05_RSR by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018. Genre: Other.

Kidz Block is our children’s ministry.  This is for our new-born through 5th grade kidz. We meet on Sunday mornings during both our 9:30am and 10:30 a.m. service times.  Kidz Block is led by a wonderful group of volunteers that want to help kids know Jesus better and help build each kidz faith one block at a time. 
 
This is a time for our kidz to get a well-rounded, age appropriate lesson on what it means to be a Christ Follower.

Baby Blvd.                (New Born – 2 years old)

Prayer Ministry
 
In addition to our prayer time on Sunday, we have a dedicated group of people who pray for those in need.  They pray for those who are on our prayer list but also accept private and personal request that people would not like to be made “public.”  We do our best to keep all things confidential by not publishing the last names of those on our prayer list (unless they are members of our church). If you have a prayer need, Please contact us and we will will pray for you.
