About Us

At Gibson

Our worship experiences are generally every Sunday morning at 9:30AM. We would love to meet you, and we have a place for you! Are you looking for belonging, a place and people where you are known and loved? Where you are nourished, encouraged and expected to grow, and where you are able to serve? Come and see what the Holy Spirit is doing at Gibson!

Our Mission

We are on mission with God as he lovingly reigns, redeems, and restores; blessing the world through Jesus Christ and his people.

For God.

For People.

For Laketown.
