Welcome to Good Shepherd! We have so much going on and hope you will join us for all of these great opportunities!
Worship on Sundays at 9 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6 p.m.
We are serving a meal at 5 p.m. with worship at 6 and Wednesday Learning at 6:45. All are welcome! Sign up to help Bridget in the kitchen and to bring an item for the meal each week.
Pastor Josh will be recording his sermons and we will be posting them online early in the week. You can find the link on our church website under the sermon tab or on our Facebook page.
Shepherd’s Closet fund raiser
Shepherd Closet is doing another fundraiser with Saver’s on Sunday, Sept. 24. You can bring your clothing or cloth donations to church on or before Sept 24. Mark the bag as SAVERS if you bring the clothes to church before the 24th as this will save us from going thru the clothes to look for donations for the Closet. Saver’s gives us 20 cents per pound for all the clothes or cloth items that are donated. Shoes, sheets, clothes, bedding, curtains are all acceptable.
With Age Comes Wisdom … of a sort! Oct. 10 at 1 p.m.
Moira Kneer will be using cartoons and humor as we take a look at the wealth of wisdom that age brings. The centerpiece of this talk is the Jenny Joseph poem, “When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple.” This event is sponsored by our Library Group and will be held in the Upper Fellowship Hall with refreshments to follow. Bring a friend!
As we start to gear up for our Wednesday evening programming – starting Wednesday, September 13 at 5 pm – we want to offer a preview for the Gospel text for the week and an opportunity for you to hear it for the first time. We hope that you will take this opportunity to give it a listen and ask any questions or offer any insights that you might have. Post your thoughts in the comments on Facebook or send an email to Pastor as we wonder aloud together how these texts fit into our lives. You can view this on Facebook or YouTube.
We are now on Instagram! Check us out! goodshepherd_ec
Join Pastor Josh on Wednesday mornings at 11 a.m. as he reviews the text for the coming Sunday.
Monthly Mission Focus
Third quarter missions – Project Backpack
The Good Shepherd Outreach Group hosted Roosevelt Elementary students to a fun evening on Aug. 9. The students were able to pick out a backpack, receive school supplies, have a meal, get a haircut, have their photo taken, pick out some clothes and shoes and enjoy a fun carnival. Donations will go towards this annual event.
