About Gilman United Methodist Church

The Gilman United Methodist Church has been serving Christ and the people of Marietta since 1799 with the arrival of the first Methodist circuit rider from Virginia.  Like many new congregations, it met in homes and public buildings (the Old Harmar School) until 1833 when its first church building (Crawford Chapel) was built in Harmar.  In 1895, a new church was built at 312 Gilman Avenue and the church was renamed the Gilman Avenue Methodist Church.

Gilman’s vision for its work in our community is “to claim our community for Christ one person at a time,” for we believe that every person is precious and important to God.  We welcome all who come with the open arms of Christ.  We are an active and vital congregation which emphasizes both the growth of its members in Christ and service to our community.  From our many activities for children to our free Clothing Give-Aways, we seek to serve and grow in the love of Christ, so that all will experience the depth of God’s love.
