Dear Good Shepherd,
Happy Thursday, here are your Thursday Notes
Good Shepherd Sunday is this Sunday. For non-Anglicans and new members, see this link for a description. We have a lot to celebrate this year and so much to be thankful for. Please come and invite your friends. There will be a nice brunch between services to celebrate.
Men's Breakfast and Bible Study: Someone is cooking for men's bible study this Friday morning at 6:30am...I'm just not sure who yet.
Chicken BBQ: There will be a chicken BBQ on Saturday May 23rd at the church...more information will be published soon.
Neighborhood Festival: On Saturday June 13th Good Shepherd will host a party for the entire community. There will be ice cream, pony rides (hopefully), face painting, food, music, demonstrations and free health screening and much more. Please mark your calendars and tell your friends..
Last Sunday's sermon: you can listen to the podcast here. It is the third on a series of sermons reconstructing the events of Easter day and the Resurrection appearances.
Thursday Bible Study: We'll be restarting the Thursday night bible study this evening after a three week haitus. We'll finish Matthew and start a new book.
Women's Bible Study: will meet this Saturday and continue to work through the book of Isaiah.
Letter to the Church of the Good Shepherd: In case you missed it, here's the link.
Systematic Theology: If you have not yet gotten last week's handout there will be extras this week. If you missed the note about the handouts, please read here. We'll be starting Saturday afternoon (time still undetermined) May 9th. I am looking forward to this class.
Christian Education: We'll be continuing our look at modern approaches to cultural engagement and classifying them by Niebuhr's five categories and begin to summarize and apply by discussing the place of Anglican churches and specifically of Good Shepherd in Binghamton and the Southside.
Choir Practice: Don't forget about choir practice...11am at the church.
Youth Update from Micah: will be meeting at its regular times this week. Junior High will meet Sunday, 1-3, after church. We are going to be going through more parables of Jesus. Senior High meets on Sunday at 6-8, and we are starting a brand NEW series on world religions. In this series we will be studying a variety of religions and worldviews, trying to understand what they believe and how it relates or differs from what we believe. This is going to be an exciting series, and less "threatening" than a Bible study. Invite your friends!
