The OPC Short-Term Outreach, Relief, and Missions (S.T.O.R.M) is looking for skilled and unskilled volunteers to help in Houston (Hurricane Harvey) and Key West, FL (Hurricane Irma). Although the help is urgent, they predict that help will be needed for 1-2 years. If you volunteer, you bear all travel and food costs, but housing is available. Please contact Janet Birkmann or David Nakhla at the S.T.O.R.M. Office. Visit www.opcstm.org for contact info and more information.

We continue our Bible study through the Ten Commandments on Wednesday evenings. This week, we’ll begin an extended study of the First Commandment, “No Other Gods.” We examine the Scriptures and have discussion. Join us as we dig deep.
The work day is re-scheduled for this Saturday, November 18 from 9AM to noon. Please join us for inside and outside (weather permitting) work.
The OPC Thank Offering will be on Sunday, November 19. This year the theme is “Delighting in the Lord” (Psalm 37:4). The offering supports the work of the OPC - Home Missions, Foreign Missions, and Christian Education.
The Session calls for the annual Good Shepherd OPC congregational meeting to be December 3 at 2PM. All members within the greater Cincinnati area are encouraged to be present for our business. The business we will conduct is regular - to hear the state of the church, to review the budget, to hold an election, to review and possibly change some church by-laws, and to have a corporation meeting with the Trustees. All non-members are welcome, but are not able to vote. There will be a time of questions and to hear of the plans for 2018. Please join us.
A copy of the by-laws and the budget will be available on November 19 for your review prior to the meeting.
Angel Tree names will be available soon. Please consider showing love to a child whose father is incarcerated.
