Have you already made all of the arrangements for your funeral? Probably not. But have you ever considered the many decisions that will need to be made? What are the associated costs of a traditional burial? What about cremation? How soon can you begin making these plans? Can you already start paying for them? More importantly, have you given any thought as to what hymns you would like sung or what Scripture Lessons you would like read at your funeral? We encourage you to join us on Thursday, September 29 at 7:00 pm for a Christian funeral planning seminar where we will explore all of this and much more.
We want to thank everyone who came out on Sunday for the outdoor service and patriotic picnic. It was great to see so many there. We thank again all of our local police officers, firefighters, first responders, and military personnel for their continued service. Most of all, we thank Christ our King for his victory over sin and death which he gives us by grace through faith.
On Sunday, September 11, the Gethsemane church family will gather for worship outdoors at 10:30 to thank God for the freedom that we have in this country to worship him, to honor those who serve us – OPD, OFD, Military – and to praise the One who served us by giving his life as a ransom for our sin – Jesus Christ. We invite you to join us.
September 11, 2001 is a day that changed our country – and our world – forever. Our country was attacked but those attacks also brought our country together. On Sunday, September 11, 2016, as we remember that fateful day and the innocent who died and the heroes who responded, we will gather for a special outdoor service at 10:30am to remember another fateful day when an innocent man lost his life, a hero who responded to our cry for help . . . Jesus Christ. Police officers, firefighters, and military personnel will all be honored as well. Lunch will be provided following the service.
On Sunday, September 11, we will be gathering for our annual Outdoor Worship and Pig Roast Picnic. Throughout the week leading up to this event, all will be encouraged to place a small, USA flag out front near and around the church sign. Flags will be on display to honor the many first responders that do so much each and every day. Please consider offering up a short prayer of thanksgiving for all first responders when placing your flag out front.
