BLENDED MUSIC SUNDAYS
(Guitar and Piano)
Dar Joy Krenek, Coordinator
This blended service has a contemporary flavor featuring acoustic guitar, piano, flute, trumpet, congas and other instruments . This service is worshipful and uses a blended sound of contemporary and traditional with a liturgical order of service. All ages are welcome to help lead these worships.
The Mexico Border Mission trips are for families and individuals of all ages.
Our mission partners are San Lucas Lutheran in Eagle Pass, Texas and Cristo Rey Lutheran in Peidras Negras, Mexico.
We travel to Eagle Pass on a weekend in January to visit with, work with and worship with our fellow Lutherans at San Lucas.
We prepare a Bible study/school time for the children. We work with the members in any way that is needed through our time, our talents and our funds to help improve the grounds and community gathering place.
We cook and serve a Saturday evening meal for all while enjoying fellowship. Sunday morning we worship at San Lucas in Spanish before heading back to Austin.

FAMILY OF GETHSEMANE RETREAT
Every late winter / early spring, we have an annual retreat for the “Family of Gethsemane”. This is a very special opportunity for friends and all members of the congregational family: singles, couples, those with and without children, from the very young to the not so young in years, but all young in spirit.
All are “Called by Grace” to come to a relaxed informal time to share thoughts, histories, dreams, conversations, laughter, songs, the bread and wine of communion, the fresh air of the hill country, and good food.
“Welcoming All to Share God’s Love”, we will meet new friends and have time to relax and be with those we may not know so well. This is a great event to invite friends to share in the family life of Gethsemane.
