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