Germantown UMC mission is “Building a Christ Connection.” We want everyone we meet to get connected to the One that loves us more than we can ever know, the One who gave His life for us, the One who still speaks on our behalf before God.
We hope you will come join us!
We are live streaming our 9:00 worship.

The Church Building Reopens!
June 29, 2020
It’s been 106 days since we shut down our church building due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It has certainly been a strange time since then. Yet, it has also taught us that God is still faithful, still worthy of our praise, and still on the throne. We have learned – and continue to learn – how to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world… literally.
Our Administrative Council voted last week to reopen our building, albeit with some caveats:
Worship: Beginning this Sunday, we will have one worship service at 9:00 A.M. It will be offered three ways:
- In-person in the Sanctuary: We will observe social distancing but will not require masks to be worn (of course, if you wish to wear a mask, it is your choice). There will be significant changes in how we do worship, however, as we try to be as prudent as possible.
- Parking Lot through the radio: We will continue to broadcast as we have been. Prayer requests will still be sent by text to Pastor Gary.
- Live streaming: We hope to have the capability of live streaming so you can watch worship wherever you are on your smartphone, tablet, computer, or smart TV, and no matter the weather or if you are ill. We are still working out the details, but there will be information and a link on our website.
- The Building is now open for groups to use. To mitigate the potential for virus spread, there will only be one group in the building per week, so it’s “first come, first served.” Contact the church office to reserve.
- At this time, we will not have Sunday School classes in the building. This will change in the future, but we are trying to work our way back slowly. Zoom classes are still going on though. Contacts: Call Scott Hayes (Faithseekers) @ 937-572-8629 or Pastor Gary (Pastor’s SS Class) @ 937-204-4400 if you are interested in joining or starting a class.
We believe this plan gives people the opportunity to participate as they feel comfortable. By providing multiple worship options, we are not forcing anyone to do something they are not comfortable doing, yet still offering congregational worship expressions to glorify God.
