The Gaithersburg Beloved Community Initiative (GBCI) is a partnership with Wesley Theological Seminary, Gaithersburg City, Identity, an agency serving Latino youth and families, Montgomery County Public Schools and the Montgomery County Executive Office. Conceived by Rev. Hal Garman shortly after moving to Asbury Methodist Village, Beloved Community engages Asbury and area residents in supporting youth. 

GBCI was inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King's vision of social justice and equality. By bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds, Beloved Community reminds us that we all share common interests and desires.
