Sunday Morning Worship and Christian Education
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 sanctuary 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. If you are going to the masking optional area in the parish hall, please wear a mask until you get to your seat, sit in family groupings, and practice social distancing. Christian Education will still be live-streamed and is open to the public, however the class is being taught in the parish hall part of the building with masking optional. 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 in the parish hall worship space.
Christian Education will begin at 9:15 and will be available at this link. Currently, Matt Kennedy is teaching a series called Controversies of the Apostolic Age.
If you missed Christian Ed last Sunday, you can watch it 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.
