Fair Trade coffee and tea (as well as other products) are sold at Gethsemane on a monthly basis. The Lutheran World Relief Coffee Project ensures that more of the money you spend on coffee reaches the farmers who actually grow it. Fair Trade coffee, tea, and cocoa is sold at Gethsemane every third Sunday. Products can be pre-ordered the first Sunday of each month and picked up and paid for on the third Sunday of each month between services. Email Karla Williams to place your order.
Prices range from $5.50 - $6.50/lb of coffee and $3.50/24 bags of tea. You will be able to special order, order in advance, or make a "cash & carry" purchase every 3rd Sunday. We will have several varieties of coffee and tea available, such as Columbian Decaf, Tanzanian Jubilee, Breakfast Blend, Mind/Body/Soul, English Breakfast Tea, and Organic Green Tea.

Any time you want to send the perfect gift, remember the Prayer Shawl Ministry at Gethsemane. Faithful members of this group enjoy sharing their God-given gift of knitting with others, and each shawl is handmade with prayers. Give one as a celebration of the birth of a baby, a wedding, an anniversary, a new job, a new home. The shawls are a wonderful way to show someone you care when words don’t seem enough; in the case of the death of a friend or family member, divorce, depression, illness and treatments, or loss of a job or home.
Prayer Shawls have been used throughout generations. Our ancient Israeli ancestors used special shawls during prayer as a reminder of God's constant presence.
Prayer Shawls are on display and available on the first Sunday of each month. Requests can also be submitted to the church office.
We request that a donation be made to the Prayer Shawl Ministry for each shawl requested. Donations cover the cost of the yarn and ensure this outreach can continue.
