THIS SUNDAY



Come help us celebrate Reformation Sunday, Oct. 26, at 10:15 a.m. as we commemorate Martin Luther's posting of his 95 Theses on the door of the All Saints' Church in Wittenberg, Germany, on Oct. 31, 1517, with the singing of "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God". 
 


2014 ANNUAL CONFERENCE


The 2014 session of the Virginia Annual Conference was held at the Hampton Roads Convention Center in Hampton, Va., Friday, June 20, to Sunday, June 22. Click here to read about what happened each day.

Joe Kinego, Mark Burgess, Yohan Moon and Lyn Moon attended from the Church of the Good Shepherd. Joe and Mark were our respective lay and clergy delegates. Joe Kinego will share highlights from the conference during the 10:15 a.m. worship service on Sunday, June 29. 


A LISTENING II, OCT 19


You’re invited to
 
A Listening II
 
This is the second of two listening events at Church of the Good Shepherd as the Virginia conference embarks on a time of holy conversations about the church’s relationship to and acceptance of LGBT persons. We heard on Oct. 12 from two pastors about different ways persons of faith respond to this issue. Sunday evening, Oct. 19, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Following a light supper beginning at 5:30 p.m. there will be an opportunity for people to share what is on their hearts regarding what they heard on Oct. 12.
 

 

"POWER" UPDATE!



Well, as many of you might have noticed, the power was out at the church most of Tuesday, September 23, as a result of a fault in the Dominion power line leading into the church. However, thanks to Dominion's "all-hands-on-deck" response, the power line was repaired and power restored by early Wednesday morning, September 24. Our Internet service, however, has been interrupted and, as a result, we may not have the ability to communicate by email for a day or so more. 


CHURCH COUNCIL, MAY 5


Church Council will meet this Monday evening, May 5, beginning at 7:00 p.m. in the Gallery.


RUMMAGE SALE, NOV 1


Fall Rummage Sale - Nov. 1, 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. These twice-a-year sales raise funds to support Church of the Good Shepherd's outreach efforts, and they serve people in our community who depend on the opportunity to shop at very low prices. These sales are an amazing recycling effort and change one person's castoffs into another person's treasures.  Their success depends directly upon donations of rummage and time from the congregation.  Please start collecting clothing and accessories, jewelry, housewares, appliances, furniture, books, CDs & movies, toys & games, sporting goods, baby items, tools and garden equipment, antiques, handcrafted treasures, plants - most anything in good condition can be sold.  Sizes in clothing are very helpful as are donations of clothes hangers and shopping bags.  Donations can be brought to church between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, Oct. 26 - 31.
 


YOUTH GROUP


The youth will gather in the Fellowship Hall this Sunday at 5:30 p.m.


WORLD COMMUNION SUNDAY




October 5, 2014
10:15 a.m.

 
World Communion Sunday — celebrated the first Sunday in October — is one of the most venerable of “special Sundays”. The day has taken on new relevancy and depth of meaning in a world where globalization often has undermined peace and justice — and in a time when fear divides the peoples of God’s earth. On this day we celebrate our oneness in Christ, the Prince of Peace, in the midst of the world we are called to serve — a world ever more in need of peacemaking.
 
 

OA MEETING


Overeaters Anonymous (OA) offers a program of recovery from compulsive eating using the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of OA. Worldwide meetings and other tools provide a fellowship of experience, strength and hope where members respect one another’s anonymity. OA charges no dues or fees; it is self-supporting through member contributions.

OA is not just about weight loss, weight gain or maintenance, or obesity or diets. It addresses physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is not a religious organization and does not promote any particular diet.

OA members differ in many ways, but we are united by our common disease and the solution we have found in the OA program. We practice unity with diversity, and we welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. Welcome to Overeaters Anonymous. Welcome home.

A chapter of OA meets every Monday evening at the Church of the Good Shepherd beginning at 7:30 p.m.


PARENT SUPPORT GROUP


The Church of the Good Shepherd’s confidential “Teens in Turmoil” Parent Support Group monthly meeting will tonight from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Room 10 (Senior High Room) in the Education Center. The group typically meets the second Thursday night of each month. The group is open to those who need support and prayers for their struggling teenage and young adult children. For more information, contact facilitator Becky Todd York through the church office.

 
 
2 Corinthians 1:4: “Praise be to God who comforts us in all  our trouble so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we  ourselves have received from God.”
  
 

WEDNESDAY MORNING PRAYER


You're invited to join us for prayer each Wednesday morning at 6:30 a.m. Please feel free to come and pray quietly in the sanctuary and leave, if you need to, or stay and join others as we move to the church's Information Center for intercessory prayer.
