Dear Good Shepherd,
The Mission and Ministry fair went very well this Sunday. Thank you to everyon who signed up to help...really, we had a good two times the number of volunteers this year that we did last year. Someone should be in contact with you by the end of the week about training (if your ministry requires it) and meeting times.
Sunday School for all ages starts up again this Sunday for the fall. There are new teachers, some new curricula and exciting plans. Parents, it is so important to get your kids into Sunday school where they will learn about God, the bible, the essentials of the faith, ways to live out that faith at school, at home, and with their friends and much more. If you cannot get your children to Sunday school because you are required to work on Sunday's , please call the church office at 723-8032 or the rectory at 773-4810 and we will be happy to arrange a carpool ride.
The adult education class will finish up our look at the development of protestantism and then turn to developments in the Roman Catholic church and the Orthodox church since the reformation. Next Sunday we'll turn to the modern ecumenical movement.
Readings posted every day: The morning prayer bible readings are posted every morning on the Blog of the Good Shepherd (this site) so if you want to follow along be sure to check in daily. If you read every day you'll have read the entire bible in one year. Soon, I will begin podcasting daily audio discussions of the readings and post them on the main website.
Choir started up again for the fall with the first practice last night that went very well. There will be another practice on Saturday for college kids and others who could not make Wednesday night.
Finally, all the bible studies are being held in keeping with the regular schedule.
Bob Shaller is cooking for Men's Breakfast and Bible Study. Here is the schedule for future refrence.
Well, that's all for now, be sure to scroll down for any news you may have missed during the week.
