Good Shepherd Happenings

Transition Period Update: The Latest News — We are excited to welcome our new Priest-in Charge, Terry Miller, who will begin his ministry with us on Sunday, October 25th, with a service of Holy Communion.

Sunday’s message of October 18th was from Dick Hickman. His words are available below.

Sunday Services during Covid-19: We are worshiping in person now but must meet certain requirements. There are new rules in place for the time being. The following notes are to help us all return to normal. The service will be Morning Prayer at 9:30.

  1. Social distancing and the wearing of face mask requirements are in place. Ushers will help with seating and we will have masks for any of you who forget to bring your own. If you use the disposable masks they should be taken home for disposal. Do not leave them in the Church.
  2. There are no books in the pews. Please bring your own Prayer Book. There will be bulletins with the prayers provided.
  3. There will be no choir and no singing, but Danny will be playing the organ, so there will be music!
  4. Please enter the Church at the 43rd Street entrance. We will exit the front doors except for those unable to manage the front steps.
  5. There will be hand sanitizing materials at each door.
  6. There will no passing of the peace.
  7. Plate donations will be made at stations available at each door upon exiting the Church.

Tuesday Morning Prayer: Join us each Tuesday morning at 8:15 a.m. in the sanctuary for a 30 minute service.

St. Monica’s: We will not meet for the foreseeable future.

Liberation Lunches – We continue to support this ministry by providing bagged lunches the third Saturday of each month.  If you would like to help and make a contribution, we are accepting food items including single-serving sized snacks such as chips, cookies, crackers, pudding cups, snack bars as well as drinks like juice boxes. You can place the items in the kitchen in the cupboard under the back window labeled LIBERATION LUNCHES.

Good Shepherd has been supporting this ministry for several years.  For those not familiar with this organization, Liberation Veteran Services assists homeless veterans by providing shelter, food and counseling services.  You can read more about the organization on their websitehttp://www.lvsrva.org.  If you have any questions or are interested in making a donation or volunteering, please contact the church office.

Prayer Requests:  If you have prayer requests, send them in an email to the office at info@goodshepherdrichmond.org. Please note, as the Sunday bulletin has been adjusted to include the complete scripture readings and prayers, space availability is can be limited and changes from week to week. As space allows, the Prayer list will be included in the bulletin. Prayer requests will also be listed at the end of the weekly email announcements.

Memorial Flowers: The Altar Guild is now accepting requests for memorial flowers.  Please contact the church office for instructions.
