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.

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.

Advent is upon us

Nov. 27 is the first Sunday of Advent, the beginning of a new church year and a time we are called upon to watch and prepare the way for the Lord.

We are still in the process of taking photographs of Robinson families for our new directory. Jim Hoyle will take photos before and after worship service this Sunday, so if you didn't get your photo last week please be sure to come this Sunday.

The following Sunday, Dec. 4, willl also be busy with a very important meeting of the Men of the Church at 8 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. We'll be talking about our annual Christmas gift program for some families at Robinson Elementary School. At 5 p.m. the Women of Church will have their Christmas party at Milano's.

Then on Tuesday, Dec. 6, a group from Robinson Memorial plan to make a trip to the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte for a unique holiday experience. We'll leave from the church parking lot at 5 p.m. See Debbie Moses for more details.

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!
