Here are your Good Shepherd OPC announcements and worship helps for the week of October 5-11, 2015.
If you have a prayer request, please forward it to Pastor Chris to be included in the congregational prayer on Sunday morning or evening.
The Lord’s Day (October 11)
Mercy ministry can be tricky in our society. How does one know if giving handouts really helps? How can one help the needy? How does a Christian show biblical mercy ministry? Mr. Brian Hopson will be tackling this issue in his eight week class, “Biblical Principles for Helping in a Handout World”.
There are two children’s classes; both use the Great Commission Publications curriculum, Show Me Jesus.
Our text is Hosea 11:1-11 and the title is “The Lord’s True Son.” The New Testament lesson is Romans 16:1-16.
We continue our study in 2 Thessalonians. The text is 2 Thessalonians 2:13-17, “Words of Encouragement.”
Sunday Evening worship is at 6 pm. If you have a psalm or hymn request, please send it to Pastor Chris during the week.
The prayer meeting is Wednesday from 7-8 pm. Please send requests to Pastor Chris for compilation and use during the prayer time.
