Good morning, Good Shepherd!

 

Here is your weekly update and the worship preparation for this upcoming Sunday, Nov. 25.

Two quick reminders:  

1.  As we enter the winter season, please remember to check the various avenues for a potential worship cancellation: our Facebook page, your email, and the website announcement page;

 

2.  There is no Sunday school on Sunday, Nov. 25 because of the Thanksgiving weekend.  

 

Gather:

... for morning worship (9:30am) as Pastor Jud preaches on John 12:37-50 ; 

... for evening worship (5pm) as Pastor Jud finishes 1 Peter by preaching on 1 Peter 5:6-14; 

 

Grow:

... by joining the Men's study on Dec. 1 at 6:30am at Pastor Marvel's as we study book 2 of Calvin's Institutes.  Here are the readings (book, chapter, section): 2.9.1-4; 2.10.1-5; 2.11.1, 4, 7, 9-11;

 

Give:

... by writing notes to our college students and members of the military. We can use this opportunity to wish them a Merry Christmas, tell them we are praying for them while they are away and/or taking final exams, or just to say hello! There will be supplies available on the countertops behind the windows in the narthex for writing notes to encourage these hard working members of our community. Please take some time to write a few words so these men and women will know we are thinking of them and praying for them. Pictures and notes from children are very welcome too;

... your time and volunteer for various needs for the church body, such as nursery, coffee preparation, etc. See the bulletin for details;

 

... your gift to joining a seasonal choir for the upcoming Christmas Eve Lessons and Carols service.  Practice continues Sunday, Dec. 2 at 3:30pm at the church.  All are welcome!

 

Personal and Family Worship are great habits to warm your hearts to the blessings of the gospel promises and the joyful duties of walking by the Spirit by reading, singing, and praying.

 

Here is the list of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs we'll sing this Sunday to give you direction for personal and family worship:

 

#100, "Holy, Holy, Holy
#308, "Jesus Paid It All"

#131, "Children of the Heavenly Father"
#366, "My People, Give Ear, Attend to My Word"

#304, "I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say"
