Good Shepherd Happenings

Sermon Series: The Great Fifty Days of Easter: During the six weeks of Eastertide, we turn our attention to the period between Easter and the Day of Pentecost, the 50 days when the risen Christ made his presence known to his followers. For six Sundays, we will linger for a while before the great miracle of Easter. We want to hold the door open between the miracle of the resurrection and our own lives. We will be asking: What does the resurrection mean for us? Who is the risen Christ for us – today? Click here to find the first five sermons. RW

Come One, Come All to the Good Shepherd Pentecost Picnic! Next Sunday, June 4, we will have a celebration of the end of the Great Fifty Days of Easter and the Day of Pentecost, “the birthday of the Church” with recognition of the acolytes, graduates, and Christian education leaders. After the service we will have a picnic with Southern fried chicken and all the fixin’s, Pentecost Birthday cake, games and music from Dick Hickman. RW

St. Monica’s will hold its’ annual year end dinner at Positive Vibe on Tuesday, June 6th at 6 p.m. We would be glad to see any women who’d like to come, even if you haven’t had the opportunity to attend other meetings this year. Please let E. Bradford know if you plan to attend. Questions? Ask  E. Bradford or M. Southwick.
