Good Shepherd Happenings

Annual Meeting: The Annual Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, January 20 and will follow the worship service. There will be reports from the Rector, the vestry, and the election of vestry members

Ross Writes: Episcopal Questions – Episcopal Answers: Exploring Christian Faith. Please join me beginning January 6 for this exploration of Christian beliefs and practices as we understand them in the Episcopal Church. We will be using an excellent, accessible new book by Ian Markham, Dean of Virginia Seminary. Topics to be covered include: Episcopal Beliefs, Ethics, Church Architecture & Vestments, Scripture, Sacraments, The Book of Common Prayer, Church and The Anglican Communion.

Inclement Weather Policy: On the rare occasion when the Sunday service is cancelled due to inclement weather, please tune into channel 6 for closings. If possible, an email will be sent Saturday night or Sunday morning and it will be posted on our Facebook page. The parish office is closed if Good Shepherd School closes for bad weather.

St. Monica’s Guild: St. Monica’s meeting has been rescheduled for Tuesday, February 5 at 7:00 p.m. We shall be presenting a proposal for replacing the Chrismons for our parish Christmas tree. We would be assembling kits for each ornament and enlist volunteers to put them together.

We are invited to participate in the activities of nearby parishes and churches. Click here to learn more.  Nearby Opportunities
