What’s Happening at Good Shepherd This Week
Large Print Bulletins are available upon request for both services. If you need a large print bulletin, please contact the office before next Sunday’s services.
Thursday Evening Bible Study The Thursday evening bible study will resume on April 14th with a new study in Judges.
Zoom Morning Prayer This service meets online by zoom at 7am Monday through Friday. The liturgy and readings are available each day at www.dailyoffice2019.com. This is a great way to get back to reading the bible and prayer. Join the parish email list and look for a daily email invitation in your inbox.
Zoom Mission Group There are currently two NEW groups meeting entirely by zoom. Please contact Jon for more information!
Stations of the Cross Our sister church, St. Andrew’s Anglican, (300 Wendell St, Endicott, NY 13760) is going to be having a Stations of The Cross service every Friday during Lent at 5:30pm, and has extended an invitation to the Good Shepherd community to join them.
Sunday Morning Worship
Both the 8am and the 10:30 services are meeting in person.
The 8am service If you are high risk, or at all nervous to be in social gatherings, this service is designed for you. All those who attend are asked to wear masks and remain socially distanced throughout the service. The 8am service is not currently being live-streamed.
The 10:30am service is currently observing ‘restaurant-style’ masking guidelines which means that while seated, masks are optional. We ask that those attending wear masks when entering, leaving, or walking from one place to another (unless you are unable due to health reasons) and practice social distancing of at least six feet between your family and the next grouping.
You can download the bulletin, including the scripture readings here. One of the joys of having a fully digital bulletin is that we are free to use color! You’ll find that some of the artwork and many of the directions are in full color. You’ll also notice that there are links in the offertory section to take you out to two different means of giving electronically. If you would like to send your tithe digitally, these are the best ways to do so. You can still send your tithe in by traditional mail as well.
The 10:30 service is also available via livestream. You can access the stream at this link. The stream begins every Sunday at 10:20am but the service does not start until 10:30am. If you do not have a Facebook account, you will still be able to view all of the services, classes, and studies.
This Sunday’s Lectionary Readings are: 2 Chronicles 36:14-23, Ephesians 2:4-10, and John 19:28-30.
Christian Education begins at 9:15am and will continue to be live-streamed, however the class is open to the public with the same guidelines as the 10:30 service. It will be will be available at this link.
Christian Education If you missed Christian Ed last Sunday, we resumed our study of the CS Lewis fictional work, The Screwtape Letters. You can watch it here. You can catch the earlier classes in this series and much more at this link.
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 episode, ‘James K.A. Smith and the Path to Apostasy‘, Matt and Anne discuss James K.A. Smith’s departure from the Christian faith and how common it has become for evangelical leaders to collapse under the pressure of the contemporary LGBTetc. movement.
Miss an episode? You can catch up on all of the older podcasts here.
Tuesday Morning Bible Study This Tuesday morning’s bible study was cancelled. We will resume with the remainder of Hosea 14 next week.
Men’s Breakfast and Bible Study The Men’s bible study meets at 6am each Friday morning.
