Gethsemane Lutheran Church and School
~ Established and rooted in God's grace since 1942 ~
The 2019-20 school year marks the 72nd year that Gethsemane Lutheran has been able to offer Christian Education to our members and our community. We praise God for the blessings of our Lutheran Elementary School and we ask the Lord to bless our teachers, our students, and our parents.
The first day of school is scheduled for Wednesday, August 21. We will hold our annual “back pack to school” night on Monday, August 19. Opening services for Gethsemane Lutheran School will be held on August 17-18. For more information on our school – or to enroll – please call the church office.
The Vine will meet on Wednesday, August 7 from 9:00 to 10:30. The Vine is open to all children (and their parents) age 4 and younger. It is a morning full of fun activities and interactive learning. Most importantly, we will share with these children the forgiving love of Jesus.
A HUGE thank you goes out to everyone who helped give our children a memorable week of Vacation Bible School. God blessed us with a great week and a great group of children who heard about Jesus every day – and had a lot of fun doing it!
Today, June 17, we blast off on our four-day Miraculous Mission as we explore the amazing universe that God created. VBS runs from 9:00am to 12:00pm and is open to all children pre-school through 4th grade.
The countdown to Vacation Bible School has begun! Our Miraculous Mission is set to blast off on Monday, June 17, at 9:00am. Join us for this amazing excursion as we view and observe the power and might of our awesome God. Register today!

Our school year begins on Wednesday, August 21! We are so excited to once again have our classrooms full of children. This year, throughout the year, God’s Word will encourage student and teacher alike to “set our minds on things above.” – Colossians 3:2
Gethsemane will once again be celebrating our Nebraska Lutheran Schools Week in conjunction with our annual Spirit Week!

This year’s event is Monday, February 18, through Thursday, February 21.
If you have a child or grandchild who will be starting Kindergarten next fall, our annual Kindergarten Round-Up will held on Tuesday, January 15 from 6:00pm to 7:00pm. You can meet both our Kindergarten Teacher and our School Principal. You can tour our facility and check-out our Kindergarten classroom. Gethsemane has been offering Christian Education…
Our annual Back 2 School Night again includes the chance to bring in all of those supplies! We also will have treats and fellowship tonight to catch up with folks you maybe haven’t seen in a while. Join us at 7p and enjoy the light backpack on Thursday.
School parents – Please remember to register your child(ren) for the 2018-2019 school year on the TADS registration portal. Need help? Shoot me text, call or email anytime. Happy to assist! The other GLS teachers and I look forward to seeing everyone back to school in a few weeks.
Each year, WELS schools throughout the region join together under one theme. The school year theme is then worked into the daily and weekly happenings throughout the school year. The theme for the 2018-2019 school year is “Walk with God – Talk with God.”
Thank you to all the kids participating and everyone who helped make “Splash Canyon” a fun time during our VBS this past week! Good to say see all the kids enjoying themselves and learning more about Jesus!
