Welcome to Gethsemane


Gethsemane Business Card ContemporaryThere are two things you’ll always hear at Gethsemane.  The first is that God loves you just as you are, and not as you think you have to become.  That’s the good news we have heard from Jesus and are eager to share!  The second is our mission statement: We exist to make disciples of Jesus who love God, love one another, and serve the world.  That reminds us that we all need to grow spiritually and that life is about relationships!

Worship with us this Sunday and you’ll hear that message, enjoy some awesome music, and meet a batch of genuinely warm and friendly people.  We hope to see you soon!

Worship Services – 8:30 and 10:02 a.m. on Sundays

At 8:30 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!

Gethsemane Business Card TraditionalThen at 10:02, get ready for an upbeat, music-intense service featuring Emilie 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.

You can also get a feel for the preaching at Gethsemane by looking at some past messages.  Heart to Heart is a series by Pastor Tim that explores how to experience the reality of God’s love for you in prayer.
