Adult Education and

Faith Formation.

What does it mean to be a Sanctuary Denomination? (Sunday Adult Ed.) The ELCA recently voted to become a  sanctuary denomination. But what does that mean for Gethsemane? Join Sarah Unsicker during the Sunday School hour to talk about sanctuary and how we can walk alongside immigrants and refugees.


We will start the  series on October 20th with a discussion of what sanctuary means and to learn about immigration policies in the United States.


On November 3, 10 and 17, we will take a  deeper dive into how immigration policy affects mental health and what some  congregations are doing to provide sanctuary in St. Louis and New Mexico.


Throughout the series we will discuss what we can do as  individuals and as a congregation to walk alongside immigrants and refugees. 


Bible Study :  This small group meets each Tuesday at 10am to look ahead at the coming Sunday’s scripture lessons.  This fall they have chosen a DVD series entitled: How Happiness Happens by Max Lucado.  


Using examples from scripture, learn how the happiest people on earth aren’t those who have the most but those who are willing to give the most away.  All are welcome.


We are a Reconciling in Christ Church
