We will be distributing PIGGY BANKS again at our annual Welcome Back Sunday celebration, September 7. Funds collected from the piggy banks will go toward Good Shepherd’s purchase of one entire Animal Farm (cow, goat, ox and plow!) for an impoverished family through Episcopal Relief & Development. Please remember to take a piggy home with you September 7th, and bring it back on October 5th(St. Francis Sunday) for collection. For more information, check out Episcopal Relief & Development online at: http://www.er-d.org/GiftsForLife/1/
The Handbell Choir strives to enhance the beauty of the worship service through its unique type of music. For over a century, English handbells have inspired worshippers with their gentle but soul-touching sounds. This multi-generational ministry incorporates bell ringers ages 12 and older
ShepherdSong is a group of singers and instrumentalists that provides musical leadership of a more contemporary nature for the 11:15am worship service. The group leads the congregation in praise songs, service music, and presents an offertory selection every Sunday. The group rehearses on Monday nights from 6:45-9:15 and on Sunday mornings at 10:00. Because of the ensemble nature of the group, persons interested in participating are asked to audition.
Tuesday Morning Bible Study Group serves anyone who wants to come. The point is to gain a better understanding of the Bible. You might want to come to increase your knowledge, enjoy fellowship, friendship, and sharing. No special skills are required. As we study the Bible, we also need to reflect on our lives and our relationships. The Tuesday morning Bible study is a safe, caring environment in which to share our personal and corporate journeys of faith. This Bible study follows the 9:30am Holy Communion, starting with prayers, sharing, study and closing prayers.
