We're easy to find. Heading south on Union Road from downtown Gastonia, we are located less than a quarter of a mile south of the intersection with Robinwood and Neal Hawkins Roads. We are on the east side of the road, just north of Robinson Elementary School. We have driveway entrances on the north and south side of the property (the south one appears to be an exit drive for the school). Map.

John C. Robinson Memorial, 3106 Union Road, Gastonia, N.C. 28056


Founded in 1951, Robinson Memorial Presbyterian Church maintains its small church atmosphere, but continues to grow in many ways. We are conveniently located just north of Robinson Elementary School on Union Road in south Gastonia. Please join us for worship on Sunday or for any of the events listed on our calendar.

Thanksgiving Eve service Wednesday

Join us for an annual tradition the night before Thanksgiving Day. Robinson Memorial will be worshipping and giving thanks together with the congregation of Mount Pisgah Baptist Church, our brothers and sisters in Christ up on Little Mountain Road. This year we will be the hosts for the 7 p.m. service with the Rev. Robert Setzer providing the sermon. A reception follows the service.

Car Show and Yard Sale a success!

What a great day we had!

Nov. 4 was a really busy day at Robinson Memorial. Women of the Church's Bake Sale was a huge success. Lots of great food went out the door with happy people. Thanks to everyone for their participation. Also going on was a free hot dog giveaway along with some games and a bouncy house for the kids. The weather was great on the front lawn. Thanks to our grillers and others for helping out.

Car Show and Yard Sale a success!

Thanks to everyone for their support of these twin events on June 17, 2017. This year's car show was named in memory of longtime Robinson member Fred Kerr. We'll post pictures soon.

Pancake supper a great time!

Thanks to everyone for another successful Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper at Robinson!

Wednesday Bible Study times two!

Starting Feb. 1 we began a new Wednesday Bible study series on the Book of Job. But even better, we added a 2 p.m. class. We realize some folks can't make the 7 p.m. Wednesday Night Bible Study as they don't like or can't drive after it gets dark outside. Both the 2 and 7 p.m. sessions cover the same material each week. We hope you will join us for this new adventure!

Check out the new signs

Taking advantage of all of the new traffic on the driveway between the church and Robinson Elementary School we've printed up and posted some "Burma Shave" style signs promoting Robinson Memorial Church. We'll move them around from time to time, so they won't always be on display.

Lessons & Carols Sunday

Thanks to everyone for a great Lessons & Carols Service at Robinson on Dec. 6. We had 50 people in attendance and a handsome cast for our Christmas pageant with a real-life baby (thanks, Tiffany and Thomas!). And the spaghetti dinner afterward was fantastic!

Car Show & Yard Sale a success!

It was a hot day at Robinson Memorial on June 13 in more ways than one. We had the highest ever number of vehicles shown in this, the 11th year of the Car Show. 65! It was a fantastic turnout. We also had a great Yard Sale going on at the same time in our back yard. We'll have more pictures later, so stay tuned. Thank you to everyone for your help!
