Gethsemane Business Card Traditional

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!

Then at 10:02am, get ready for an upbeat, music-intense contemporary service featuring Emilie Worre Noble and the 10:02 Band.  Children are invited to attend the Kids Konnection Sunday School which meets during this service.  Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of the month at this service.  On that Sunday, children are encouraged to worship with their parents, and are dismissed to Kids Konnection before the message.

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!

An Exciting School Update from our Principal, Scott Revoir

By on July 1, 2015

I am very excited to announce that we have hired two new teachers for our kindergarten and fourth grade openings. Kirsten Head will be taking over in kindergarten and Ali Sandberg will be our new fourth grade teacher. God blessed us with over 28 candidates and helped us to discern who was right person to join our Gethsemane family.  I have asked both ladies to write a short introduction about themselves and have attached them below.
Hello Gethsemane Families and Staff,
My name is Kirsten Head and I am your new kindergarten teacher. I have been a teacher for 25 years in the public schools, and now I am very excited and blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of your education and faith community.  I live in Roseville with my husband Mike and our two children – Alex(15) and Mikayla(13). As a family, we love to watch movies, play board/card games, camp, travel, and swim.  In my free time, I enjoy reading and scrapbooking.  I look forward to meeting you during this school year.
Hello! My name is Ali Sandberg and I am a recent graduate of the College of St. Benedict. I received my degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Communication Arts. I had a great experience student teaching in an independent school where class sizes were small, faith was the center of learning, and family took an active role in their child’s success. I am thrilled to be apart of a community that shares these same values as I begin my teaching at Gethsemane Lutheran School. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors and being active. Hiking, camping, being on the water and baseball games with friends and family, are just a few activities that I love to do.  I am very thrilled and excited to be apart of the Gethsemane family and wonderful team of teachers as well! This is a dream come true for me and I look forward to the days ahead! I look forward to meeting all of you soon!
Thank you God for sending us such wonderful people to join our Gethsemane Family! Continue to bless us as we go throughout the summer.
