Each Thursday, members of the congregation are invited to gather at church at 9:30 AM to study the current Sunday morning's gospel reading. The group is open to anyone who wants to attend, and is group led. The purpose of the study group is to encourage us, through study, prayer, and fellowship, wherever we are in our faith journey, to follow Jesus daily.
Men's Bible Study
The men of Gethsemane Lutheran Church gather every Friday at 5:30AM in the church library, where they study the current Sunday morning Gospel reading, while enjoying coffee and (occasionally) a roll and the fellowship of other men.
Youth Sunday School
Our seventh, eighth, and ninth-grade students meet at 9:00AM on Sunday in the youth room to explore God's love and light in their lives. They use Bible study materials from Daily Discipleship and Faith Lens. The group is led by one of our Sunday school teachers.
Children's Sunday School
Our students of preschool, kindergarten, and elementary age participate in our Sunday School to Go (SS2GO). The youth do three weeks of Sunday School at home and join us on the fourth Sunday of the month for games, snacks, and crafts followed by a children's sermon during worship.
SAM Minister, Mavis Buker and her husband, David, lead seventh, eighth, and ninth-grade who are preparing for Confirmation. They meet once a month on Sunday evenings during the school year. Throughout the three years of study, students study the entire Bible, as well as Luther's Small Catechism, and they participate in a variety of service opportunities. Students publicly affirm their faith on Reformation Sunday in the fall of their 10th-grade year.
