Gettysburg United Methodist Church

Celebrating 200+ Years of Methodism in Gettysburg!


Welcome to the fellowship of Gettysburg United Methodist Church.

We gather to give praise and thanks to the One who has given us Christ Jesus, and through him, all things.

Our goal is to rejoice in the presence of the Lord before we begin a new week, to support one another in prayer and to challenge one another to live as people of God in our homes, offices, shops, factories, schools and playgrounds.

We believe the Christian life is the most rewarding, demanding and fulfilling life possible.


In-person worship has resumed. We will follow the same COVID safety policies that require masking and social distancing as we did before (click here). Services will also be live-streamed to our Facebook page every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. (we may begin the live-stream earlier with preparatory music).

Online Services will continue to be available on Facebook. Since they will be live-streamed, they will not be available before 10:30 a.m. on Sundays. Services will also be saved on Facebook and available for viewing at any time after they end.

Please click here to make an electronic donation to our ministries.

Sunday school classes have not yet resumed.  Weekly Bible Study meets Wednesdays from 10:30 am to noon on Zoom. Please email the church for more information:

Excerpt from this week’s Devotional:

“Perhaps we like to make our own decisions rather than obey God’s will, and so we reject his influence. We think that we’re independent, but we’re not. We fail to realize that we’re controlled by the world’s expectations and our own selfishness, and that only Christ can set us free. Jonah was controlled by his hatred of Nineveh. He let hatred, not God, guide his actions. We may be controlled (even without realiz-ing it) by the values of the world (cravings for pow-er, wealth, ‘success’, popularity, selfishness, etc.). Only if we choose to give our lives to him can Christ truly set us free.”
