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.


In-person worship service every Sunday at 10:30 AM in the Sanctuary. Masks and social distancing required.

Excerpt from this week’s Devotional:

“We especially remember those members of Gettysburg United Methodist Church who have gone home to glory during the past year. They will be recognized during this Sunday’s service (both online and in person), and I thought they should be remembered here as well.  As you read their names, please say a prayer of thanks-giving for their lives, and for all that they meant to you. And please say a prayer of blessing for their families and friends who still struggle with their loss. The members whose lives we celebrate this year are:

Norma Reale

Charles F. Swingler

Noreen P. "Peg" Shealer

Lloyd Calvin Dye

Patsy J. Tawney

Maurice V. "Bud" Crews

Lois Mae Ferrence

Janet Marie Carlson

Sonda Newby

Genevieve M. "Genny" Reaver

We are thankful for their lives and for the many blessings they brought into this world. We are also thankful that their lives are not over, for they live forever in the heavenly light of God’s glory. We shall see them again when God calls us home to his eternal presence.
