Thank you to everyone who joined us for Commitment Sunday this weekend. It was a glorious day. If you were unable to join us, we invite you to reflect on the ways in which your life, and the lives of your loved ones, have been impacted through God’s mission of Good Shepherd. Then prayerfully consider what you would like to commit to in the form of a pledge. It is not about the amount, it is about recommitting yourself to Him.
Pledge cards can be mailed to the Church, placed in the Sunday offertory plate or they can be made online at cotgs.org. If you need another card, you can pick one up at the Church Office or in the pew rack in Church on Sunday.

What’s happening at the Corner today is an important story to tell. The story began in 1971, when a group of Good Shepherd ladies, including our own Ruth Welch, founded the Corner, a Christian social enterprise serving the community. Their purpose, much as it is today, was to offer high quality resale items to those families unable to shop at regular retail stores, to provide consignment income to families and to offer volunteer and fellowship opportunities. Through the dedication of the many volunteers over the years, the Corner has had a great impact on the community with the many grants that have been given. A few of the recipients receiving funds from the Corner include, the Boy Scouts, Good Samaritan Rescue Mission, Food Bank, Metro Ministries, Palmer Drug Abuse Program, Wind Mind Ministries Sports Camp, and the Church.
In 2016, the Corner added a new venture to their Mission Statement to include a paid job-training program for sheltered women. The Acacia Job Training Program focuses on sales, customer service and business skills to prepare women for living-wage jobs to be able to support themselves and their families. The Acacia Job Program is a bridge between job skills training and full employment. The program addresses not only business skills, but it also seeks to be a part of the healing of the whole person. These women are individuals recommended to the Corner by their case managers and interviewed by them.
The Corner greatly appreciates the support our Parish gives each year through donations given and consignments placed with them. As they fully enter into their new mission venture, we hope you will continue your wonderful support.
