This is important to us.
At Gethsemane, we want to put our faith in the Lord into action: to help those in our community who are in need - physically, emotionally and especially spiritually - ready to share with others the reason for the hope that we have. The hope that is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
Vacation Bible School
One Saturday each summer, we open our doors to the children in our neighborhood who are invited to a themed adventure where the Bible comes alive through stories, music, games, crafts and recreation. A family BBQ in the afternoon follows the close of V.B.S.
Volunteer Meal Hosts
We are privileged to prepare and serve meals for our neighbors at a local family shelter several times throughout the year.
Black Friday Coffee
On the Friday following Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday, we have the joy of brightening the day of weary shoppers at the Washington Square Mall with coffee and hot cocoa. We are located right across the street from the entrance on SW Greenburg Rd. (Look for the 3 crosses). We appreciate the opportunity to join with our community in ringing in the start of the Christmas advent season, looking forward to celebrating the birth of the Christ!
Gethsemane @ Edgewood Point Assisted Living & Memory Care
Every other Thursday, Pastor Moll brings church to the residents of Edgewood Point Assisted Living & Memory Care Center. It is a privilege to share the good news and hope of the Gospel to those who are unable to leave the facility to attend traditional church services.
Sharing the Gospel in our neighborhood
We have seen how the Lord blesses Christians who step out in faith to share their faith.
So that our joy in the good news of God's salvation is made complete, we want to go out and share this important message with our neighbors by walking the neighborhood and introducing ourselves to our community with the timely and relevant message of God’s love and grace.
If we paid you a visit or you would like to learn more, please contact us!
Our prayer chain is a way for people to gain assistance in prayer for any serious and pressing problem. We know that the Lord hears our prayers (1 John 5:14-15), and we are assured that He answers them all according to his good and perfect will. (Luke 11:9, Matt. 7:7).
Prayer requests are collected throughout the week and our congregation will be honored to pray on these requests.
If you would like our congregation to pray for you, you can submit a request on our website.
Bible Information Class
Periodically throughout the year, Gethsemane offers a basic course about Christian faith and life which we call, Bible Information Class. This is a great opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of the Bible. This 14 week class covers topics such as:
- who God is and how He makes himself known to us
- the work of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
- the role of baptism and the Lord’s Supper
- how we come to faith
- the Christian and God’s will
