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.

If you would like to sponsor the bulletin in honor/memory of someone or some event, the cost is $15. Please call church office 345-6860 with the information for the bulletin
To place flowers on the altar for Sunday morning worship, there is a sign-up sheet on bulletin board by water fountain. Then please call church office 345-6860 and give the information for the bulletin.
The next Church Fundraiser Dinner is Jan 25. Please take time and sign up to work at the dinner and make pies. Signup sheet is on bulletin board by main entrance.

Sign up for the fun!

If you would like to occasionally help this ministry, please contact the church office @ 345-6860. It is very difficult for one person, so if we can build a team this little blessing each Sunday can make our guests and parishioners so comfortable.
