Good afternoon, brothers and sisters! Here is your weekly update and worship preparation for this upcoming Sunday, July 14. You'll notice a few changes to this update - I've included a section focused on prayer requests, and I've added a section that lists the summer prayer guide readings for this week. 

Prayer Requests: 

"Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16). 
  • Your brothers and sisters at Good Shepherd. This week pray for those church members with the last name between A and D. 
  • Our missionary of the month at Good Shepherd, the Carrs. Pray for their work at the Mokahum Ministry Center in Northern Minnesota. 
  • A sister church in the Siouxlands Presbytery, Grace Covenant Church in Bloomington, MN and their pastor John F.
  • Those dealing with various health concerns or other needs.
  • Those at GSPC currently looking for employment. 
Announcements/Upcoming Events:
  • Fireworks at the Marvels - Join us at the Marvel house for ice cream sundaes and fireworks on Sunday, July 14 at 7pm. Please bring an ice cream topping to share and lawn chairs. Fireworks usually start around 10pm, so there may be a kickball game or Frisbee match before they start. 
  • Women's Bible Study - The Large Group for Women's Bible study will be meeting at GSPC this Wednesday, July 10th from 7:00-9:00pm.  
  • New Members Class - The class for new members and curious visitors will meet this Sunday, July 14th following the morning worship service. The class will then break for two weeks and pick back up during all Sundays in August: 8/4, 8/11, 8/18, and 8/25.
  • Prayer Guide - Pastor Jud has put together a prayer guide to help people grow in their life of prayer and to aid in family worship. Pick up a copy of the summer prayer guide in the narthex.  
  • Did you know? - Did you know that you can watch the recordings of all the PCA General Assembly proceedings from a few weeks ago? All of the video recordings can be accessed here
