Sunday Morning Worship

8:30 & 10:02

Come As You Are…Really. 

At 8:30am we worship in a traditional service featuring hymns, liturgy and organ.  If you enjoy a classic worship style, then this service is for you. Communion is served weekly at this service and all people are welcome at Communion!  Pastor David Wrightsman will be preaching at both services.

Then at 10:02am, get ready for an upbeat, music-intense contemporary service featuring Emilie Worre Menz and the 10:02 Band.  Children are invited to attend the Kids Konnection Sunday School which meets all but the first Sunday of the month.  The children are welcome to join the congregation for the music portion of this service and then are dismissed to their classes.  The first Sunday of the month is what we call “Family Sunday”.  Pastor Dave prepares a childrens message and we enjoy learning about Jesus together as a family.  All are welcome.  Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month at this service.

The finally at 3:00pm we have our Spanish speaking service, Casa del Maestro, led by Pastor Sam.    Casa del Maestro means “Master’s House” and in 2013 it opened it’s doors for the purpose of conveying biblical principle for the whole family.  Come and see this new ministry!



New Church Directory

A new edition of the Gethsemane pictorial directory is finally happening!

  • A pictorial directory helps put names and faces together, uniting our congregation.
  • It can be used as an outreach tool for our church.
  • It can be used in the home as a conversation starter and a tool for sharing our church.
  • It will be a great aid in making prayer requests more personal.
  • It will be a good tool for showing the history of our church at this point in time.
  • It tells the story of our church with pictures.
  • You’ll receive a free 8 x 10 portrait and a directory for participating.
