Special Event Coming to Good Shepherd!
“Pounding” for our New Deacon
Sunday, July 1
Following the 10:30 a.m. Service
in the Parlor
A “Pounding” for a minister stems from an old tradition also known as Food Pounding where church congregations welcomed their new pastors by giving them a pound of something for their home. On Sunday, July 1st, we are going to follow this tradition as we welcome our new Deacon, William Campbell.
We are asking everyone to bring something to welcome William and his wife Claire as they begin life in our city. Gift cards and cash would be greatly appreciated. If you will not be here on July 1st but would like to participate, please bring your gift to the Church Office. (If you are writing a check, please put it in William’s name.) Thank you!
Thank You to Our VBS Volunteers!
Vacation Bible School has ended for 2018 but the spirit is alive in all who participated. Thank you to all of the wonderful adult volunteers and counselors who made this last week possible. You taught over 140 children how Jesus gives us hope, courage, direction, love and his power. What a blessing you are to our children and the Church! We could not do this without you.
