"Know That You Are Welcome here at
First United Methodist Church of Gulfport!"
Gulfport is a waterfront village/city surrounded by St. Petersburg, Florida. We have national award-winning restaurants, beaches, and shops. Some are pretty "funky" and adhere to the jesting slogan; "keep Gulfport Weird." Yet were not weird at all (except perhaps, for a few days each year for some homegrown events and festivals like "Gecko Fest" in September). You'll just have to come and see for yourself.
Our Church is in the heart of Gulfport, Florida several blocks from the water. Our congregation is 110 years old. We were the first and largest Church in Gulfport, yet we are small enough to still have that hometown, friendly, family atmosphere. In the winter we welcome a large number of winter residents (those famous snowbirds) many of which have been with us each winter for years. We truly look forward to welcoming them back each season. It is always good to see old friends.
It is an honor to serve First United Methodist Church of Gulfport, FL and my congregation welcome everyone.
Hope and peace,
Pastor Tracie Ashley
