Pastor Jose Castro and Gethsemani Baptist Church have run a food ministry for nearly 25 years, helping feed nearly 300 families every week. Officials in San Luis, Arizona are trying to shut them down.

First Liberty recently filed a federal lawsuit asking a court to allow the church to continue its vital ministry. Watch below.

A Very Different Easter Weekend at Gethsemani Baptist

Also, you’ll want to watch the short clips below. You’ll see exactly what’s happening as a result of the city’s hostility toward the church.

In 2023, Gethsemani’s Easter celebration was bustling, vibrant and filled with life. The church was being the church on this important holiday, meeting people’s needs and distributing pounds and pounds of food. Watch below:

Contrast that with this past Easter weekend. In 2024, things look very different. The outside of the church property is empty. There’s no food distribution or community outreach happening. No families or children getting the help they need. Why? All because of the city’s aggressive tactics against this church. See for yourself:

Pastor Jose and Gethsemani Baptist are counting your support.

With your help, we can win this case. It would mean so much to the Pastor, the congregants and the hundreds of families impacted by this ministry. And by winning for this church, you’re also going to help protect religious freedom for every American, including YOU.
