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!

WORSHIP SCHEDULE CHANGE- Summer 2019
20190702post2.jpg

Our five weeks of Summer Sunday School began on June 16 and continues through July 14. We've had a blast so far! But what will happen after the five weeks?

 

Council voted at our April meeting to adapt our Sunday morning schedule for the second half of summer (July 21 to September 1). We will offer two worship services during that time with fellowship opportunity between the services. Sunday School will go on hiatus, giving us a chance to plan for the fall!

  

"Second Half of Summer" Schedule (Sundays, July 21 to September 1)

       8:45 am             Traditional Worship (15 Minutes Earlier Than Normal)

       9:45 am             Fellowship Time Between Services (No Sunday School)

      10:30 am            Contemporary Worship (1 Hour Earlier Than Normal)

Building Connections Special Gifts
20190702post1.jpg

Greetings everyone.  The renovation of Shepherd's Hall is going well.  When I walk into that construction zone, it looks more and more like the conceptual drawings. Amen!  The crew at Porter Construction is doing a great job. 
 

Last week, we mailed out a brochure to each household called "Building Connections: Special Gifts".  We are now in the process of ordering new tables, chairs, artwork, etc for Shepherd's Hall and for the Education Wing.  We'd like to invite you to consider making a dedication in honor/memory of someone and help us furnish our newly renovated spaces.   Read through the brochure below and act quickly.  This short furnishing campaign will run through August 15.   

Pastor Dave
