Empty Bowls Workshops
Have fun, make clay bowls and help raise funds for ICA for their annual fundraiser. All ages and experience levels are welcome to partake in these workshops led by Naomi Chinn and Tiphanie Dirnberger. The first Friday we will make clay pots and the second Friday evening we will focus on glazing the pots. We will meet at Gethsemane in Room 105 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. You can make a bowl for yourself and the others will be donated to the Empty Bowls event at the Hopkins Center for the Arts on March 13.
January 12 – making clay bowls

Reel Theology
You are invited to the gallery on Fridays Jan. 12, 19 and 26 at 1:00 PM for a movie and discussion. We will be looking for the presence of reformation in each movie – whether it is within the lives of the characters, the context of the film or perhaps, even, within you. Treats will be provided – come as often as you are able.

Winter Family Fun Night January 19 * 6:00 PM 
Find shelter from the winter chill and cuddle up with your preschooler for Music and Storytime! Gethsemane member, Katy Tessman will read a book and lead songs enjoyable by all. Join us for this special cozy family time of stories, music, movement, and play-alongs. A pizza dinner will be served for a freewill donation.

Brewery Tour 
7:00 pm meet time at the brewery. We will sample some craft beers and discuss different styles, beer-making history and answer questions. Hopefully, get to meet and learn more about one another.
