Even though G3 officially launched in 2011, the idea came about much earlier. G3 came about as the intersection of Mt. Tabor UMC’s (on Robinhood Road, in Winston-Salem) mission to “go share God’s Word Love and in Action” and the vision by our bishop to reach the unchurched in our region.
After spending several months of praying, reading Scripture, and talking with other churches, a group from Mt. Tabor UMC began to put togther a team of people called to “reach those who felt far from God.” We started with a small but auspicious number, twelve. But then we began to grow and connect with other like minded Christ followers.
We offically launched our public worship on September 18th, 2011. Since then, we have been meeting weekly for our worship gatherings, small group bible studies called “growth groups” and regularly in “go” service opportunities.
