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 ….

    Family Obligations
    The church is called a "family" in the Bible. That gives us a sense of love and belonging (as it should) but it also implies a covenant relationship. Paul ends his letter to the Galatians with some words for the "family," reminders of how we are to treat one another as well as how we are to conduct ourselves. "04_Family" from 03_Galatians by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018. Genre: Other.

    Under the Influence
    Who or what determines your decisions? We either live by our own rules or by the leading of the Holy Spirit (and you know which one the Bible says ought to describe Christians). So what would our lives look like if we followed the Spirit of God instead of our own lives?"22-18 - Under the Influence_A" by 4. Genre: Blues.

    Is the Gospel “enough”? Some think that we need to add a few extras “just to make sure” we’re doing things right. This was a problem in the 1st Century Church, one that Paul addresses with some strong words. "01_Gospel" from 03_Galatians by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018. Genre: Other.

    Serving Love
    Do you serve or do you prefer to be served? I know we all like to be pampered once in a while, but what is your "attitude"? At church, we talk about "being a servant" and that's all fine and good until someone treats us like a servant. Jesus taught that our love should be a serving love. "07_Serving" from 02_LLJ by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018. Genre: Other.

    Merciful Love
    A tale as old as time ... no, not the Disney movie, "Beauty and the Beast" (although ...?) I am talking about the Good Samaritan. What if everything you thought you knew about the story was wrong? OK, not EVERYTHING you know about it is wrong, but I bet you missed something."11-18 - Merciful Love_AudioLi" by 3. Genre: Blues.

    Peaceful Love
    Have you ever been (or perhaps even now) in need of peace? Something is not right within you; unsettled, vexed, in turmoil. And then the moment comes when all is put right, your anxiety abates, your inner turmoil is calmed. That is the love Jesus had and that He gives to share."05_Peaceful" from 02_LLJ by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2018. Genre: Other.
How Can I Get Involved In A Ministry
Great question! Below you can see all the ministries that we are apart of and partner with, while learning more about who we really are.  You  may be wanting to know what you can do here on Sunday mornings, locally in our own backyard or even help out internationally by getting involved? Here you can explore how you can be a part of something bigger than yourself.  We can help you get involved in the adventure of volunteering to serve.
Our Ministries 
Here at Gaston Christian Church we support in house ministries, local ministries, and International ministries. Below is a description of some of them and where you can learn more about them. 
Kidz  Block
What Is Kidz Block?
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. 
Our classroom’s are: 
Baby Blvd.                (New Born – 2 years old)
Toddler Trail             (3 yrs – 5ys.)
Lego Lane                (K – 2nd grade)
Hero Heights            (3rd grade – 5th Grade) 
The Garage 
The Garage is our High School & Middle School Ministry. We meet on Sunday mornings during our 9:30am Bible class time and 10:30am service time. The Garage exist; for students for one reason: It’s a rough time to be that age. At this age students tend to become more independent and push their own limits as they enter Middle School and High School.

Prime Timers
We have a “Fun and Games” group that meets once a month for our senior Citizens (or just likes to play games and have fun)!
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.
