Sanctuary - By Carrie Newcomer On "The Beautiful Not Yet" September 16, 2016. For more information

[05/01/17]   In response to [our] context, and mindful of the church’s past failures to protest against violence, arbitrariness, and pride of power; trusting that God’s grace is indeed sufficient; our community of faith, Gethsemane Lutheran Church, joins in the larger work of a new sanctuary movement.

Our ears and hearts are open.
You have the words of eternal life.
