What’s Happening at Good Shepherd
Lunch with A Missionary The lunch with a missionary series will resume this Sunday, June 23rd with a special session on a new and important topic. Linda McMahon will give a presentation regarding her work at Heart Grown Communities with foster children. This is a Christian organization not previously “on our radar”. Please join us in the green room following the 2nd service. Lunch provided.
Ladies Spa Day There will be a Ladies Spa Day held at the Rice’s home on June 29th from 1-4pm. All of the ladies of Good Shepherd are invited to come and spend an afternoon lounging by the pool, having your nails done, and having massages. Consider inviting a friend that may not have a church family to join you. For more information, please contact Martha Rice. Please RSVP so that Martha and the team can plan appropriately.
CHURCH FAMILY FUN NIGHT! Mark your calendars! In lieu of evening services over the summer there will be a chance on the last Sunday of each month to gather and enjoy the season! Come relax, catch up with your church family, and enjoy games, snacks, songs and conversation. S’mores and bottled water will be provided. Bring your own blankets or lawn chairs, yard games, munchies to share, and an instrument if you play. Sunday June 30, 6 Pm, Church of The Good Shepherd.
Kennedy Family Vacation The Kennedy family will be taking their vacation during the month of July. Please do your very best not to contact them unless it is an emergency. The office will remain open, and Tyler will be available for pastoral needs.
Scheduling Reminder If you need to make an appointment with Pastor Matt, please be sure to contact Stephanie directly at email@example.com.
Often when people come to speak with Matt after the service on Sunday, he’s already been working for over nine hours, and doesn’t always remember to put it into the calendar. This can cause double bookings, or forgotten appointments. Please keep in mind that the office is closed on Mondays and Fridays, but you can always leave a message. Thank you so much for your understanding.
Women’s Bible Study is currently studying the book of Amos. Women of all ages are welcome to come together to study the bible book by book on Saturday mornings at 10am. This group meets in the green youth classroom on most Saturdays.
Good Shepherd Youth Group Youth Group meets on Sunday night from 6:00 – 7:30pm at Good Shepherd. All youth between the ages of 12-18 are welcome to join as the youth group continues to study the book of Romans. Please contact Tyler Van Fossen if you’d like to know how to help or be involved in the Good Shepherd Youth Group in any way. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Youth Group will not be meeting for the summer. Please keep an eye on this space for upcoming events.
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!
Preventing Grace Podcast Did you know that Matt and Anne have a podcast? They talk about everything from church polity to rustic breads. In this week’s episode, ‘Culture, Religion, and the Prosperity Gospel’, Anne and Matt make some corrections, give an important update on the prosperity gospel bishop situation, and discuss African religion and how it is that the Prosperity Gospel has made such inroads in Africa.
You can catch up on all of the older podcast episodes here.

This Sunday’s Sermon will be based on John 8:29-38.
And he who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to him.” As he was saying these things, many believed in him.
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”
Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.I know that you are offspring of Abraham; yet you seek to kill me because my word finds no place in you. I speak of what I have seen with my Father, and you do what you have heard from your father.”
