A NEW ADULT BIBLE STUDY CLASS
9:45 in Hope Hall
We will be studying the writings of Paul. Of the 27 books in the New Testament, the Apostle Paul was the writer of 13 of them. So Paul was a significant contributor to Christianity. It promises to be a very interesting and fun study. Breakfast will be available after 9:30 am. Bible study will begin immediately after breakfast. Leader of the new class will be Stanley Sones, who respectfully requests your presence. The class and breakfast will be held downstairs in Hope Hall. If you are not coming from the early church service, you may enter Hope Hall through the lower level take out side door. If you have children, there will be a Sunday School Class for them at the same time. If you need some more information or have any questions at all, PLEASE give Stan a call @ 345-6872 or 592-3988. Thank You, and hope to see you there, Stan
Our after school program for 2020 has begun. We are so hoping that a few of you will find it in your heart to give a small amount of time for the children. Time needed is one day (Tuesday) for approximately one and a half hours or less. There are possibilities of some terrific things for the future with our youth. Please don’t miss the chance to go for the ride. 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.
FINGERS of FAITH Crochet/Knitting group meets Tuesdays @ 6:30. Join the fellowship to learn, share a pattern or get help with a difficult stitch.
It’s time to set our focus on Lent, Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and
Easter. In anticipation of this moving and life altering season, there is
going to be an Easter drama meeting February 4, 2020 @ 7:00 PM.
Our drama “Cradle To The Cross” has become a greatly anticipated
local, County and beyond event attended by hundreds. If you enjoy
seeing it, imagine what it truly feels like taking part
no matter how large or small that may be.
Please think about it deeply and pray for God’s direction.
I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a
whole lot more as they get older; then it dawned on
me… they’re cramming for their final exam.
THE HUB IS ALWAYS ACCEPTING OF LIGHTLY USED SHOES AND BOOTS. PLEASE CHECK YOUR CLOSETS. SO MANY FOLKS NEED OUR HELP RIGHT NOW.

Psalm 89:1-4 (NIV)
Psalm 89: 1-4
A maskil of Ethan the Ezrahite.
1 I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever;
with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. 2 I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
3 You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one I have sworn to David my servant, 4 ‘I will establish your line forever and make your throne firm through all generations.’’
Mark 5:1-20 (NIV)
Jesus Restores a Demon-Possessed Man
5 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.[a] 2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him. 3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. 4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. 5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.
6 When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him. 7 He shouted at the top of his voice, “What do you want
with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God’s name don’t torture me!” 8 For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of this man, you impure spirit!”
9 Then Jesus asked him, “What is your name?”
“My name is Legion,” he replied, “for we are many.” 10 And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.
11 A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. 12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” 13 He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.
14 Those tending the pigs ran off and reported this in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened. 15 When they came to Jesus, they saw the man who had been possessed by the legion of demons, sitting there, dressed and in his right mind; and they were afraid.16 Those who had seen it told the people what had happened to the demon-possessed man—and told about the pigs as well. 17 Then the people began to plead with Jesus to leave their region.
18 As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him. 19 Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” 20 So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis[b] how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed.
