Make Your Reservation for Easter Worship
Happy Easter! He is risen. He is risen indeed, Alleluia!
We have two worship services this morning to celebrate the resurrection at 9 am and 10:30 am. Reservations are required to attend as we have a 100 person limit on capacity. There is no deadline to make a reservation as long as we do not reach the capacity limit.
No Wednesday Prayer This Week
There will be no Wednesday Prayer Service this week. We will resume our Wednesday Prayer Services on April 14.
April Verse of the Month
Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.”(1 Corinthians 15:51–52, ESV)
Voters Meeting Results
We hosted a voters meeting last Sunday to approve the purchase of carpet and other sanctuary renovations when the funds become available. We are eager to move forward with this project to update our sanctuary. If you would like to donate to this effort, you can click on the button below. Any funds that are donated will be matched up to $2500.
The new chairs were delivered two weeks ago. A big thank you goes out to everyone who helped to unload and unpack them. We have placed a few of them in the sanctuary to give you an idea of what the sanctuary will look like when it is finished.
Easter Egg Hunt
Thank you to all our volunteers who helped out at our Easter Egg Hunt. It was a little chilly but the sun was shining and everyone had a great time.
Men’s Bible Study
Our men’s Bible Study titled “Faith That Sees Through Culture” will not be held this Easter Sunday. We will pick up again next Sunday, April 11th, at 8:30 am in the Conference Room or via Zoom. . For anyone still interested in joining, it’s not too late to join.
Women’s Bible Study
There is no Women’s Bible Study this week. The Women will resume next week, Monday, April 12. They will begin a new study that is yet to be determined.
Ways to Financially Support Good Shepherd
Visit gs4nj.org/give to donate. You can donate with a credit card or have the funds debited from your checking account. You can also set up automated giving set up on a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or twice-monthly basis.
Another option to give is text to give. Text any dollar amount to 84321. We will reply with a link to a quick, self-guided setup process to tie your mobile phone to our church, your donor account, and a payment source.
As always checks can also be mailed. Visit our contact page for our mailing address.
If you already shop at Amazon, it is easy to support our ministry. Instead of going to amazon.com to shop, just add “smile.” before amazon.com. So the link will be smile.amazon.com. Any time you make a purchase at this link 0.5% of your purchase will go to the charity of your choice. It may not be much, but it adds up over time and as more of us make use of this service. Please keep in mind that you need to use the smile link every time you make a purchase. If you go back to using the regular Amazon link or use the Amazon app, we will not get a donation with those purchases.
Shop with Scrip
Scrip gift cards are available immediately following the Sunday worship in the Narthex. There are many cards to chose from and specific gift cards if you want. Be sure to ask what other cards are available. There are hundreds to choose from. We are grateful for all who have purchased these cards in support of our ministry. Be sure to stop and pick up a few cards.
