Shepherd's Hall Re-Dedication and Mission Talk (Sun. Oct 20)

We’ve done a lot over the last two years at Good Shepherd.  New faces have joined the congregation and gotten very involved. New groups have started. We’ve blessed the larger church with great support. We’ve provided catalyst grants through our Endowment for ministry projects and seminary scholarships. Our Sunday school program keeps growing for all ages. Our Outreach Committee keeps on serving and finding ways for us to serve.

 

The Building Connections Campaign has enabled us to tackle so many physical improvements that bless our ministry. These include, but are not limited to: the education wing renovation, a new awning, new fencing lining the parking lot, a new coat room, a new music room, a new electronic sign, a new garbage coral, new exterior lighting, and of course - a completely renovated Shepherd’s Hall. We especially give thanks for all the generous support of the Special Furnishing Campaign; gifts given in honor or memory of loved ones.

 

Do you know what’s awesome? There’s still one more year of the campaign! We have some exciting things planned for next year! At both services on October 20, we will have a time of gratitude as we rededicate Shepherd’s Hall.  Additionally, join us in Shepherd’s Hall during the Sunday School Hour. We’ll have some food and some time of fellowship. Pastor Dave will be giving a Mission Talk starting at 10:30 a.m. In that talk, he will speak about the 2020 projects that we’ll be undertaking as well as sharing insights about the 2020 Ministry Year.  Join us!

 

*Note – Sunday School for kids will occur & the talk is being videotaped. 




 

Shepherd's Hall New Cross

Shepherd’s Hall’s New Cross (By Pastor Dave)

When you walk into the renovated Shepherd’s Hall, you will notice a beautiful wooden cross on the wall. First and foremost, the cross reminds us of Jesus’ love for all humanity. In addition, this cross creatively re purposes materials from Good Shepherd’s story! Ken Wagner, our Building Chair, salvaged wood from the old organ loft in Shepherd’s Hall as well as some leftover wood from the 1978 pews. Ken took the wood home, brainstormed, came up with an idea of how to merge different materials together, and then got to work in his wood shop. The result is one that I’m thrilled with. I am sure you will be delighted when you see it. Thank you, Ken!
