Here are your Good Shepherd OPC announcements and worship helps for the week of April 3-9, 2017.

Westside Reformed Church is having a Good Friday service on Good Friday, April 14, at 6:30 pm. They meet at 3011 Harrison Ave, Cincinnati (normal building, but in the main sanctuary).

The next fellowship lunch is Sunday, May 7 after the morning service.
To put action to our church revitalization strategies, there are two assignments that need done. First, if you have a story or anecdote or a general timeline of the history of the church, please send it to Pastor Chris. We are compiling a history of the church and all contributions will help us. Second, we are thinking about and asking god to lead us to understand where the church may have sinned or fallen short in its obligations. On April 30, we will begin a time of repentance for sins. Again, if you have considered the past and recognize an unrepentant sin, please send it to one of the elders.
Following our fellowship meal, we’ll watch the fourth session of the From Embers to a Flame Conference: Strategy 3.
The Machen Retreat & Conference Center, a ministry of the Presbytery of the Mid-Atlantic-OPC
Highland County, McDowell, Virginia, will host ‘HISTORY CAMP’ led by Professor Roger Schultz of Liberty University and Professor Nick Higgins of Regent University. This camp is for ages 12-18 and is June 26 through July 1. Register now by e-mailing Mrs. Sharon McCrina at firstname.lastname@example.org (full registration to follow online).
The Machen Retreat and Conference Center is also hosting Stronghold. Stronghold is a co-ed game for boys and girls, from 5th-12th grades. Be prepared to run with your unit, do drills to gain muscle memory and embark on epic battles. All of the foam weapons are designed to pass the national Dagorhir regulations. This means that they can swing with full force and will not cause serious damage to the body (bruises happen, as with any contact sport). This sport is less dangerous than baseball, football or soccer. Pre-Register NOW!! Camp Dates: August 7th - 12th
Location: Machen Conference and Retreat Center, McDowell, VA Registration: pre-register by e-mailing email@example.com For more information: https://strongholdwithsire.wixsite.com/stronghold/stronghold-shields-up-camp-2017
