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.


Due to the great increase of COVID rates in Adams County, Church Council voted to temporarily suspend in-person worship for a period of 4 weeks. Church Council will re-evaluate this decision toward the end of January.

Online Worship Services will continue to be available weekly on Facebook.

Excerpt from this week’s Devotional:

“Jesus tells us to ask and keep on asking. Of course we ask God to address our concerns for ourselves and others. But we also ask in deeper ways. We ask for wisdom and guidance. We ask to become more loving and forgiving. We ask for a deeper relationship with God and with others. We may even ask for God to give us what he thinks is best for us instead of what we want.”
