Septiembre 2014

Fall is upon us Good Shepherd, The summer was not exactly laid back, and the fall shows no sign of letting up. We have a great fall planned, and we will see a lot of great opportunities to challenge and to grow together. I am really excited about the rest of 2014 and what lies ahead in 2015.

I want to express my deepest thanks for all the love, cards, well wishes and the gifts, especially the gift from the church for my 50th birthday. What a great day, and I was so joy filled and excited to share it with you. One of the things to look for when you want to know if someone is authentic in their living in the love of Christ is to look at the personís heart. A big heart is where the Holy Spirit dwells. I believe Good Shepherd has a huge collection of Big Hearts.

The main phase of our capital campaign kicks off on September 14th with a festival and lots of chances to celebrate the goodness of God and of Good Shepherd. Events start at 11:15. Please save the date.

Our Sunday school revs back up the same day, September 14th. We are in need of Sunday school teachers at all levels including age 3 through high school. Please see Laura Adams or Beth Doescher if you would be willing to teach Sunday school once a month.

The flooring and painting committee is meeting weekly, and we are closing down on the plan. We hope to have a good plan and a timeline to share shortly.

The multi-cultural committee is meeting regularly. We are planning monthly events and ways to bring our new Latino families into our church family as we slowly transition the Grace Latino community into our midst.

Confirmation classes start on September 7th at 3:30-5:30 and will continue the first and third Sunday each month. God watched out for me with only one Packer game conflict. Confirmation is for anyone 14 years and up who desires to be officially received into the Episcopal church, has not been confirmed before, or if you were confirmed Episcopalian and have been away from church for a while.

There is lots going on here at Good Shepherd. The fall will be amazing. Thanks for all your prayers and hard work this summer.

God bless us on our journey!
