Welcome to
THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
OF Garrettsville!
 
 
 
Hello Friends:

Our church in Garrettsville has been in compliance with the wishes of our Bishop and our Governor, and we have been closed to the public since March 14. We do not know exactly when we will be able to gather together again. It is my hope that we will be extremely cautious and keep our distance from one another. That is the only way to block the spreading of this virus. We hope that everyone will be responsible and practice safe distancing while wearing masks and keeping our hands very clean.

 

While our sanctuary sits quietly right now, we have been gathering together since March 22 by means of the computer program known to many as ZOOM. We have now had eight worship experiences together which have all been recorded on YouTube and are accessible to you below. If you would like to join into our Sunday morning gathering on Zoom, please contact us and we can welcome you in. There is a Meeting ID number along with a password. I have been able to re-establish the two Bible Study groups I lead via Zoom as well. Again, we can provide that Meeting ID number for you. These groups meet on Mondays at 10 am and 7 pm.

 

We do not know how long this will continue, but we wanted you to know that we can stay connected through this website, and with our church’s FaceBook page which is simply Garrettsville United Methodist Church.

 

Please be safe. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, perhaps we can relearn ways to live in the face of the extra time that most of us have available. Please pray for those who are sick, and for those who have already suffered the loss of loved ones. Especially pray for the medical workers and first-responders who help hold our society together. 

 

May God bless and keep you all, and all the world. No exceptions.

 
Rev. Richard K. Thewlis
