What’s Happening at Good Shepherd This Week
Sunday Morning Worship and Christian Ed
Dear Good Shepherd,
After many months of meeting digitally, Good Shepherd is meeting in person once again!
Both the 8am Service and the 10:30 service will be held in person at Good Shepherd each Sunday. Christian Education will still be live-streamed for this week, and will not be open to the public, however there will be a tent and chairs outside so that the class can be viewed on the property. The 8am Worship service will not be live-streamed, but the 10:30 service will be available to experience in three different ways. Please take a moment to read this note from Matt to the church explaining the options for worship this week.
Christian Education will begin at 9:15 and will be available at this link. This week we’ll continue our discussion of Clement’s epistle to the Corinthians written in 95Ad. You can read the entire epistle on our website here. If you missed last Sunday’s class on Clement, you can watch it all 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.
