Gethsemane Baptist Church is an age-integrated church. We gather each Sunday as singles, empty-nesters, and families of all sizes for worship, teaching, prayer, and fellowship.
Our service begins at 10:30 and usually concludes by 12:00. Currently we sing hymns and worship songs with piano accompaniment, stringed instruments, or acapella. Pastor Hale teaches through a book or passage of the Bible in a systematic, expository method. God’s Word is what convicts, converts, builds up, and sanctifies God’s people. We recently finished a survey of the Old Testament through the covenants, seeing that the entirety of Scripture’s story is all connected, pointing us to Christ. We are currently studying Paul’s Letter to the Romans (but will be doing a 2-3 week topic study in Sept since we just finished ch.8). We see Romans as the God-given key to understanding all Scripture, bringing together all the Bible’s greatest themes – sin, law, judgment, human destiny, faith, works, grace, justification, sanctification, election, the plan of salvation, and more. All for the sake of His great name.
Everyone is welcome to join us for a fellowship meal after the service.
As a church body we are committed to training our children to sit in the church service, encouraging families to worship together. We understand the challenge of training little ones to do so and know that they will make their own joyful noises and wiggles throughout the course of the service. Therefore, we work together to encourage and assist each other through the early training years. See Let the Children Worship for helpful suggestions. We have available a separate room if a child needs extra attention or correction, but we hope you are able to rejoin the service soon after. The presence of children is a gift to the Church.
