Common Questions

What is worship like?
Worship is planned around a biblical theme for the day. The songs we sing and the portions of the Bible that we read reinforce that theme.  We listen to God speaking to us, and we respond in prayer, praise, and thankfulness.

God is a majestic and transcendent God. In our worship service we approach him in reverence, awe and humility, and also joy and celebration!  

What is the sermon going to be like?
God's Word is still relevant in the 21st century and always will be. The sermon relates God's timeless truths to your life and walk with Christ.  St. Paul says in Romans 10:17, "Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the Word of Christ."  Your faith in Jesus will be strengthened through the hearing of His Word.

How long is the worship service?
A typical worship service lasts about an hour.

Are you going to call attention to me as a visitor?
Not at all! We want you to feel welcome--and we hope you're warmly greeted by other Gethsemane worshipers.  However, you can worship as anonymously as you choose. We're just very glad when you can join us and praise God along with us!

Do I have to be a member to attend worship or other events?
We welcome everyone to worship, to activities, to game nights, to outings. Come as you are! You'll find a welcoming group of friendly people.
