State College District Lay Leadership Training/Resource Day, Jan. 18, 2020 Snow Date Feb15, 2020. Check the bulletin board for full information.
Gethsemane would love to share with all of our Church family and friends, through our weekly bulletins, the wonderful news of new
Births, Adoptions, and Fostering! Please share the excitement by contacting Jeff in the GUMC office, so I can share it in the weekly bulletin.
The office has received a few phone calls thanking the
“Gethsemane United Methodist Cookie Angels”.
We too would like to thank those Angels who, on Christmas morning made surprise visits to folks who had to work at our local Service
Stations, Police, EMS Etc, to share holiday cookies to brighten their day. What a beautiful outreach of Christian Love. Thank you for such a wonderful gesture in God’s name.
Your Poinsettias may be taken at the conclusion of the Awakening service. There are protective covers in the cloak room to cover your flowers before going outside.
MISSION CENTRAL IS TAKING CARE OF BABIES!
Gethsemane mission central is beginning Advent season and beyond by filling cribs for babies LOCALLY and World Wide. We ask that as you can, please bring from the following items listed by the Main Mission Central. These items will be combined to create BABY KITS.

Snaps, buttons, ribbon fasteners are fine… Receiving blankets–THIN not HEAVY fleece or flannel 26″ x 26″ to 32″ x 32″ preferred.
ALL ITEMS MUST BE NEW. Do not wash any of the items as they will be considered used. All Clothing sizes must be 9 months or smaller. It is not necessary for any of the material to be flame resistant. Do not include any personal notes, money or additional materials that will be used to make Baby Kits from the donated items. Each of the 7 items listed will be combined in the blanket to create our baby kits
Our last after school program for 2019 was Tuesday December 17th. If anyone would be interested and would consider helping occasionally in 2020, please give Jeff a call in the church office or stop in and talk about it. This is one of the most rewarding community outreaches that we here at Gethsemane offer. Any work with children of all ages is the most rewarding gift we can receive..
