What’s Happening at Good Shepherd This Week
Kennedy Vacation The Kennedy family will be taking vacation through the month of August. Good Shepherd has lined up speakers to come in and preach during Matt’s absence, and Tony Seel, the former rector at St. Andrews will be our supply priest for the month.
Tyler Van Fossen will be teaching Christian Ed. The Tuesday and Thursday bible study will be on hiatus for the month.
Please refrain from contacting Matt for any reason other than an emergency. Tyler and Jon will both be available for regular office hours, and the office will remain open during the entire month.
Tuesday Morning Bible Study will be cancelled for the month of August while Matt and the Kennedy family are on vacation.
Thursday Evening Bible Study will also be cancelled for August.
Friday Morning Men’s Breakfast will continue to meet.
Mission Groups All Mission Groups are on hiatus for the summer, and will resume in the fall.
Women’s Bible Study The women’s bible study is still paused for the time being. Please see Christine Osgood for more information.
Youth Group There are no youth group meetings from August 1-September 6th.
Senior Send-Off Campfire The final gathering of the youth group for the 2019-2020 year will be this evening on August 7. There will be a campfire at the Van Fossen home at 65 Beethoven from 6:30-9pm, and pizza and drinks will be provided.
First Meeting of 2020-2021 Youth Group will resume regularly meeting on Sundays from 6-7:30pm at Good Shepherd.
Sunday Morning Worship and Christian Ed
Both the 8am Service and the 10:30 service will be held in person at Good Shepherd each Sunday. We ask that if you come into the building for the services that you wear a mask unless you are unable, due to health reasons, and that social distancing be practiced at all times. Christian Education will still be live-streamed and is open to the public, however the class is being taught in the outdoor area in the tent near the garage. The 8am Worship service will not be live-streamed, but the 10:30 service will be available to experience online as well as in person on the property in both the sanctuary and the outdoor worship space.
Christian Education will begin at 9:15 and will be available at this link.
The current Christian Ed series is called We Are All Theologians and is being taught by Tyler Van Fossen. If you missed last week’s class, you can catch up here.
The live-stream of the 10:30 service will be posted on Facebook each week. The stream will begin on Sunday starting at 10:20am but the service will not start until 10:30am. You should be able to access it at this link. If you don’t have a Facebook account, you will still be able to view all of the services, classes and studies.
You can download the bulletin, including the scripture readings if you click on this link. In the bulletin, you’ll 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 electronically, these are the best ways to do so. You can still send your tithe in by traditional mail as well. You will also notice that the front cover picture, as well as the congregational directions are now in color! This is a bright spot of enjoying a fully digital bulletin. The red is a close match to the traditional color of those directions in the BCP.
