After morning worship, we’ll gather for lunch. The food theme is comfort foods. Please bring a dish appropriate to the them and enough to share. Side dishes and desserts are also welcome. All are invited to eat with us.
In accord with the By-Laws of Good Shepherd OPC, the session has called for the annual congregational and corporation meetings to be held on December 2 beginning at 2:00 pm. All communicant members are asked to attend. Non-communicant members and visitors are welcome also. At the corporation meeting (held within the congregational meeting), we will elect three trustees, an annual election. No one was nominated by the congregation for either office of elder or deacon, so no officer elections are necessary. During the congregational meeting, one elder, one deacon, the pastor, and the treasurer will each make a report. The treasurer’s report will be to review the budget. At the end of the meeting, the congregation will have an opportunity to ask questions of the pastor, ruling elders, or deacons.
The evening worship service for December 2 is canceled.
Study the Bible with us on Wednesday. We begin at 7:00 pm and are studying Jesus’s Kingdom parables in Matthew 13. This week, we’ll consider some of the implications of Jesus’s parables.
The Session meeting from Tuesday, November 13, was adjourned and to be continued on Tuesday, November 27 at 6:30 pm in order that the elders might finish their business.
The church is once again participating in Prison Fellowship’s Angel Tree program. This year we will have ten (10) children participating divided among three (3) families. We have to make an initial contact with each family. Please see Sarah Taylor if you would be willing to make one or more of those phone calls. The initial contact is an important step in the process and should be done soon.
The next fellowship lunch is Sunday, December 2 after the morning worship. The food theme is Comfort Foods. Please bring a comfort food to share. Side dishes and desserts are also welcome.
The evening worship is canceled on December 2. Instead, we’ll meet at 2:00 pm for our annual congregational and corporation meetings. All members are urged to be present as we hear reports from the pastor, elders, deacons, and treasurer. Also, we’ll review the proposed 2019 budget.
On Christmas Eve, the church will have its annual Lessons and Carols. Join us for this beautiful event and invite a friend.
