Gethsemane Lutheran School

Brothers in Christ,

As many of you have heard at the end of this school year we are closing our school.  While we mourn the loss, God has provided us with 44 years of bringing Christ centered education to the Oklahoma City area.  We consider ourselves blessed to have had this long to minister to the children with God’s Word.  But the time has come for us to close our doors.  Even as we mourn, we celebrate God’s blessings to us in Christ.  We would like to invite you, your members, especially anyone connected with Gethsemane Lutheran School to join us in celebration.

School Celebration Sunday will be May 19, 2013.  Our worship will begin at 10:30 am with son of the congregation Pastor Dan Laitinen preaching.  A catered meal to follow.  Program in the afternoon to celebrate God’s blessings through these 44 years of Christian education in Oklahoma City.  RSVP is requested if you plan to attend the meal which can be given at our Facebook page.  We understand that many of you will not be able to attend but may want to.  We wanted to give you a way to send any greetings or well wishes along to be shared that day with the gathered group.  Feel free to leave messages at the Facebook page or if you prefer send those greetings to  We will post any greetings we receive the day of the event for those gathered to see.

We are gathering to praise God for the opportunity we’ve had to share God’s Word in Oklahoma City.  We gather because of his grace to us in Christ over these decades.  We praise God he is giving us this opportunity to celebrate his work in our midst.  We hope you and your members can join us for this School Celebration Sunday on May 19th.  If you can’t be with us in person we hope you might be able to pass along well wishes or greetings at our Facebook page or  Any former students, teachers, aides, or anyone associated with Gethsemane Lutheran School, this day is for you too.  We would love to hear from you if you can’t join us.

Lord’s blessings to all of you in your place of service.

In Christ,

Pastor Craig Born
