News and Notes – September 22

Categories: Church

  • Altar Flowers: The Ladies Guild will now be delivering our altar flowers to our shut-ins. When you sign up for flowers there is a box for you to mark if you will be taking your flowers home or if you would like to donate them.  If you have already signed up for flowers in the future, please look at the chart and mark your flowers for home or donation.
  • Hearing/Listening Devices are available for use during the service.  They are located in the drawers of the credenza in the church entryway.  Please see an usher or pastor for assistance.
  • Bible Study: Join us for Bible Study at 9:20 AM. We will continue looking at the ways worship spaces assist Christians in confessing the truths of God’s Word.
  • Fall Fellowship: Join your Good Shepherd family for a night of food, games, and fellowship on Friday, October 4. There will be activities for young and old alike. Everyone is welcome. We will begin with dinner about 5:30 PM at church. Hope to see you there!
  • Christian Relief Fund: The Board of Elders is pleased that Good Shepherd’s Christian Relief Fund has provided financial help to those among us in need over the past months. Because of the extraordinary nature of those needs, the Elders would like to ask you to consider a special gift to the fund to replenish its resources. A special offering basket for that purpose will be at the back of church for the next several weeks, or you can make your gift in person at the office if you prefer. Next week will be the last week we will collect in the back of church. Thank you for your generosity and concern!
