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:
 

Christ B.C.

The Bible Jesus read, the Scriptures used by the Apostles to establish the Church was the Old Testaments, the Law, the Prophets, the Psalms, all of it.  As Jesus spoke to the two on the road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13ff), He used “the Law and all of the prophets” to teach them all that the Scripture had to say about Himself.  We are going to look at some of those pictures of Christ … “before Christ” … as we look toward Easter.

    Yahweh Forgives … Totally
    Series: The Name
    Yahweh forgives and He is forgiving. That is pretty amazing considering how much I (we) have messed up (sinned) ... and continue to do so. Yet He does not grudgingly forgive, He does so willingly and completely. It is because of His mercy and justice that He does so."06_Forgives" from 02_TheName by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2020.

    Yahweh’s Abounding Steadfast Love and Faithfulness
    Series: The Name
    Is love a feeling? An emotion? For Yahweh, it is much more than how He "feels" about us. It is a commitment. The next phrase in His self-description (Ex. 34:6-7) is that He is "abounding in love and faithfulness." Our English words do not convey the full meaning of these Hebrew words, but we get an idea with the fact that Yahweh is ABOUNDING in them and that He is faithful in His love."05_HesedEmet" from 02_TheName by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2020. Genre: Other.

    What We Need to Know About Yahweh’s Anger

    Yahweh, Like No Other
    Series: The Name
    What is Yahweh’s number one characteristic? 1 John 4:8 states plainly, “God is love,” (and again in verse 16). Isaiah 6:3 declares, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts …” – thrice declaring God’s holiness. Both of those characteristics would be great answers to the question of which is number one. But when God Himself declared His name, His identity in Exodus 34:6-7, He led with … “Yahweh, Yahweh, a God merciful and gracious …” If you have a different idea about who Yahweh is, then perhaps you are mistaken."03_mercy" from 02_TheName by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2020. Genre: Other.

    In Case You Missed It the First Time
    Series: The Name
    When God proclaimed His name to Moses (Ex. 34:6-7), He repeats His name, "Yahweh, Yahweh, merciful and gracious ..." It is not a typo or anything like. It is there for emphasis. God wants to make His name known, for us to pay attention, not cruise past it ... what exactly is God emphasizing? Well, for one thing, His supremacy over all other so-called gods."Yahweh-2" from 02_TheName by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2020. Genre: Other.

    God Has a Name
    Series: The Name
    "Who is God?" How you answer that, what you believe about God will shape and control everything about you! The religious zealot (no matter what religion), does what he/she does based upon who they believe God is. The atheist and agnostic live according to their disbelief in who God is. What about you? What do you believe? Is He "up there" far away? An angry God waiting to punish? A half-senile grand-dad God who thinks you are wonderful and can't remember anything you might have done wrong? What if all of that is WAY WAY off-base? What if we asked God what He is like? What would He say?"01_name" from 02_TheName by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2020. Genre: Other.

    Below My Line of Vision
    Series: 20/20 Vision
    One memorable childhood lesson from the Bible is that of Zacchaeus (Luke 19). He was a tax collector, but more memorable is that he was a "wee-little man" (as per the song)! Luke just says he was small in stature. But still, the point is that he was small - both in size and in public perception. And Jesus saw him and honored him by going to his house. That story reminds us that Jesus cares about "the little people.""04_BelowVision" from 01_Vision by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2020. Genre: Other.

    Peripheral Vision: Seeing Others Around Us
    Series: 20/20 Vision
    Seeing God is extremely important and seeing ourselves correctly is also very important, that our "vision" does not stop there. We need to see those around us, those on the ... periphery. Jesus did that. He saw those "on the margins of society." He loved them. He went to them. He told us to do the same."03_Others" from 01_Vision by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2020. Genre: Other.
