Joining Jesus on His Mission: God has called each of us to join Jesus on His Mission, but many of us struggle in figuring out how to do that. This coming January, Good Shepherd will be launching new groups to help us learn how to do it and encourage us to follow through. If you would be interested in being part of one of these groups or leading a group as a facilitator, let us know on your connection card.
Youth Group Fundraiser: Make and take boards. Sunday December 9th immediately following the 10:30 service. You can design your own “board” and make it and then take it home with you. You can make something for your own home, or maybe make something to give as a gift. $10 gets a 4 x 12 board and $20 for a 4 x 24 board. (cash and check ONLY) Please sign up on connection card or email Rachel at: RachelHarning@gmail.comand let her know if you are coming.
Confirmation Program: The Confirmation Program can be a little costly for some families. If you would like to help,you can donate towards the confirmation program, please do so by using the envelope in the pew and clearly marking it “Confirmation Program”.
Christmas Eve Music: If you would like to be part of the Christmas “Choir”, weather it be as a singer, guitar player, instrumentals, percussionists, etc., we want you. Services are at 5 and 7 pm and we would like you to be at both services. If you are interested in taking part, please sign up on today’s connection card.
Angel Tree Gifts: When you pick your “Angel”, please be sure to sign the book with the appropriate Angel # so the group knows who has the Angel. Please be sure to bring the gift back NO LATER Than December 9th. We ask that you spend approximately $25 on each Angel. There is a brief description of each group on the table near the Angel book.
Christmas Poinsettias: If you would like to order a poinsettia for Christmas, please use the signup sheet on the table in the Narthex. Poinsettias are $5.00 each.
CHRISTMAS EVE WORSHIP SERVICES: Christmas Eve Worship Services will be at 5 and 7 pm.
Flowers on the Altar: You can have flowers put on the altar in celebration of an event,anniversary, birthday, baptism, etc., or in memory of a loved one. There is a book in the Narthex to signup. They are $30 for a bouquet, and you can take them home after the 10:30 service if you wish.
