Here are your Good Shepherd OPC announcements and worship helps for the week of May 1-7, 2017.
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 (May 7)
We continue our study on sanctification: War of a Lifetime.

From Embers to a Flame Conference: Strategy 3, Gospel-Driven and Christ-Centered at 2 pm. No evening worship service.
The Bible Study resumes May 3 at 7 pm when we begin our new study on the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit, using a Puritan Paperback abridged version of John Owen’s The Holy Spirit. This book has been abridged and modernized for grammar and language so as to make it “easy to read” as the cover indicates. The book costs $8.50 if you order through the church ($9.00 on Amazon). Please let Pastor Chris know if you would like to purchase a book.
The next fellowship lunch is Sunday, May 7 after the morning service. The food theme is Tex-Mex.
Following our fellowship meal, we’ll watch the fourth session of the From Embers to a Flame Conference: Strategy 3, Gospel-Driven and Christ-Centered.
The Session of Covenant Presbyterian Church (Vandalia, Ohio), having been appointed a special committee for arrangements for the service for ordination and installation of Daniel Doleys as pastor and of Dale Parsons and John Sutter as ruling elders, and for the particularization of Living Water Orthodox Presbyterian Church, call for a special meeting of Presbytery for Friday 26 May 2017 at 6:30 pm. At this time the presbytery will meet to approve the order of worship. 7:00 pm is the starting time for the ordination, installation, and particularization service. This meeting will be held at 1704 Sunset Ave, Springfield, OH 45505 (website: www.lh2opc.com).
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 email@example.com (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 firstname.lastname@example.org For more information: https://strongholdwithsire.wixsite.com/stronghold/stronghold-shields-up-camp-2017
