Here are your Good Shepherd OPC announcements and worship helps for the week of March 30-April 5, 2015.
A Call to Prayer (Wednesdays at 7 pm)
Join us for an hour of prayer this and every Wednesday evening from 7-8 pm. This is a good chance to minister to one another in love through prayer. If you have a prayer request, please forward it to Pastor Chris by Wednesday afternoon to be included in the prayer meeting.
The Lord’s Day (April 5)
Mr. Alex Eppstein begins an eight week study on the Gospel of Mark. During the summer, we will have three or four short classes, which we will soon announce.
There are two children’s classes; both use the Great Commission Publications curriculum, Show Me Jesus.
We will take a week reprieve from our study in Amos. This week, we’ll look at Jesus’s resurrection from the dead. Notably, we’ll see some long-term effects of His resurrection for you. Our text is 1 Peter 1:3-5 and it is entitled, “A Living Hope Through the Resurrection.” Our Old Testament reading is Psalm 16, which we’ll also sing.
We pick up our series on the Westminster Shorter Catechism at question 104. At this point in the prayer, you begin to pray for your needs, chiefly your material needs. The text is Matthew 6:11 and the various supporting texts and the title is “Content with Your Portion.”
WSC 104 What do we pray for in the fourth petition?
A. In the fourth petition (which is, Give us this day our daily bread) we pray, That of God's free gift we may receive a competent portion of the good things of this life, and enjoy his blessing with them.
Wednesday Prayer at 7 PM, each Wednesday.
Sunday Evening worship is at 2 pm, following our fellowship lunch. On the first Sunday of each month, we meet for Sunday School, morning worship, a fellowship lunch, and the evening service. I hope you’ll be able to stay for fellowship and worship.
The Women's Bible Study is meets each Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the Miller’s house.
The next fellowship lunch is scheduled for Sunday, April 5, immediately after morning worship. The theme is brunch foods. Our evening service will be at 2 pm.
The church will be hosting a progressive dinner on Friday, April 17. Three families in close proximity to one another have agreed to be the stopping points in the progression. More specific details will follow.
The deacons have scheduled a work day for Saturday, April 18 from 9 am until 1 pm. There will be indoor and outdoor work for skilled and unskilled laborers.
If you would like to be a part of or would like more information about the Presbytery of Ohio’s disaster response team, please speak with one of the deacons, Mr. Brian Hopson or Mr. Luke Denny.
