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.

Souper Bowl coming up Jan. 28

No, that’s not a typo! We have a special evening planned for Wednesday, Jan. 28 at 6:30 PM. We want everyone to bring a crockpot, pot or whatever of your favorite soup, stew, etc. and join us as we take part in the “Souper Bowl of Caring.” This is a program begun in 1990 at Spring Valley Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC to raise funds for hunger ministries. Since that time it has raised over $71 million.  We’ll share our favorite soups and take up a collection to feed the hungry. Come and join us!

Wonderful day at Robinson!

We were blessed with a great cast of characters during the Christmas pageant that is a part of our annual Lessons & Carols service. Thank you to all the participants and our choir for making this a memorable experience. And thanks to the Women of the Church for a great spaghetti dinner following the service.

Session members elected

During our annual congregational meeting we elected three people to the Session. Amy Palmer, the current clerk of session, was re-elected for another three-year term. Joining the Session for a three-year term is T.C. Dunlap. Also new to the Session next year, serving a one-year term, is Jean Faires.

Bake Sale a big success

Thank you to everyone who had a role in this year's Women of the Church Bake Sale. It's a lot of work, but a lot of fun too and for a great cause.
