What’s Happening at Good Shepherd
Marriage Class Matt and Anne have begun their series on marriage during the 9:15 Christian Education hour. This will be an overview of the topics that they cover in premarital instruction, with a special emphasis on communication. A great book to read before the class is Tim Keller’s The Meaning of Marriage. Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
TRUNK OR TREAT! Many Good Shepherd and neighborhood families were able to enjoy trunk or treating in the parking lot and foyer, and popcorn and hot chocolate for those that wanted to warm up a bit! Thank you so much to everyone who brought candy, helped with setting up, and with cleaning up after the event.
CHE Rummage Sale Collection Anne Thompson is collecting for the Christmas Rummage Sale to support Community Health Evangelism, Nicaragua. Please email her if you have items to donate. They can be available for pick up on Sundays. Thank you.
Scheduling Reminder If you need to make an appointment with Pastor Matt, please be sure to contact Stephanie directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 The Women’s Bible Study meets every Saturday morning from 10 to 11AM. Women of various ages join together to study the bible, moving book by book, and verse by verse. All women are extended a warm invitation to attend. The ladies are currently studying the book of Psalms. The Psalms express so much from praise, forgiveness and gratitude for God’s grace and so much more. Join us while we study this ancient collection of songs and poems that has been woven into our worship services for centuries. Please contact Christine Osgood for more information.
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: email@example.com.

Items needed: canned ham, turkey, or chicken, instant or scalloped potatoes, canned stews (meat/bean stews), canned corn, green beans, peas, and carrots, baking mixes, canned fruit, stuffing, powdered milk and coffee creamers, rice, tomato sauce, macaroni and cheese, and anything else you’d like to bring.
Cleaning, personal hygiene, and paper products and are always greatly appreciated!

Tuesday Morning Bible Study This Tuesday morning we continued in Mark chapter 7, moving from Jesus’ discussion of the relationship between scripture and tradition to his calling a Syrophoenician woman names. Good times. You can listen here.

This Sunday Matt will be preaching on John 11:54-12:8.
Jesus therefore no longer walked openly among the Jews, but went from there to the region near the wilderness, to a town called Ephraim, and there he stayed with the disciples.
Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and many went up from the country to Jerusalem before the Passover to purify themselves. They were looking for Jesus and saying to one another as they stood in the temple, “What do you think? That he will not come to the feast at all?” Now the chief priests and the Pharisees had given orders that if anyone knew where he was, he should let them know, so that they might arrest him.
Six days before the Passover, Jesus therefore came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, whom Jesus had raised from the dead. So they gave a dinner for him there. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those reclining with him at table. Mary therefore took a pound of expensive ointment made from pure nard, and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume. But Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples (he who was about to betray him), said, “Why was this ointment not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” He said this, not because he cared about the poor, but because he was a thief, and having charge of the moneybag he used to help himself to what was put into it. Jesus said, “Leave her alone, so that she may keep it for the day of my burial. For the poor you always have with you, but you do not always have me.”
