            TOGETHER                   SEEKING GOD

Sunday School Class –  Disciple’s Path Group starts today at 9:30am and run through April 14th. This is a series of gatherings whose purpose is to give you a picture of how we think about following Jesus here and how we pledge to help you continue to grow in your journey with Christ. If you’re thinking that sounds like Confirmation class or a New Member Class, that’s because you’re right. What we want to focus on is how God has laid a path for us to grow in Christ. We’ll talk about how we got here (history) and spend some time talking about what we believe about God and Jesus and the Church, but most of what I hope we’ll talk about is how we live that out in a way that helps us grow more closely to our Savior. At the end of our time together, we’ll invite you to make a commitment to be a Disciple of Jesus as a member of Gethsemane United Methodist Church. If you’d like to join us ,please contact Pastor Jim or the Church office (if you haven’t already) so that we can get materials ordered.

Sunday Evening Lenten Service will be at Forest Baptist Church starting at  7 pm with Pastor Vickie Beilfuss as speaker.  

Gethsemane Garden Circle  Women’s Group will meet TUESDAY at 7 pm in  Hope Fellowship Hall.    All ladies of the church are invited to become involved in this ministry.

Wednesday Night Bible Study will be in the library at 7 pm with Pastor Jim as leader.  We’ll take a 5 week look at Colossians.  Join us as we look at Paul’s joys, hopes, prayers and directions for the church at Colossae and at what that means for us.

Hungry Warriors Men’s fellowship group will meet SATURDAY 8AM at Kwik Fill restaurant in Kylertown with leader, Ron Beistline
