Good Shepherd Food Pantry Summer is almost upon us and shortly children will be out of school and won’t have access to the school meal programs. What if you didn’t have the money to provide good healthy meals for your children? Where would you go? What would you do? You might turn to a food pantry like ours for help; so it’s important for us to keep it stocked all year long, so that those who make use of it won’t go hungry. Thank you to all of you who have contributed to this worthy cause! Please keep up the good work!
Items needed: canned meats and tuna, peanut butter and jelly or jam, cereal, canned fruits and vegetables, pasta and sauce, one box meals, rice, powdered milk, coffee, tea, cocoa mix, soups and stews and anything else you’d like to bring.
P.S. – Paper, cleaning supplies, and personal care products are always appreciated!

This Sunday’s Sermon will be based on Colossians 1:21-29, and will be given by The Rev. Jerry Shriver Jr.
And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds,he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister.
Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God that was given to me for you, to make the word of God fully known, the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.
