Pet Blessing, Outdoor Worship and Christmas in July

Sunday, July 20, 2014 - 9:30am

Bring your pet to Outdoor Worship on July 20th.

Imagine, simple carols, gentle warm summer breezes. You are worshipping God to a fresh beat in the great outdoors. In addition to the great worship, we bless those creatures who give us joy and comfort and delight us each and every day.  Whether you have a chicken, hedgehog or a dog, a cat or a canary, bring your pet to our worship service at 9:30am.

Our Anniversary Theme: "Building on our Past to Grow our Future"

Our Anniversary theme, "Building on our Past to Grow our Future" is a reflection of Good Shepherd's remarkable history which inspires our ministry for years to come.  The theme is visually captured in the Anniversary logo (see left) which is anchored in the building blocks of our past and points to the life-filled ministry of our future, all centered around the infamous "folded hands" logo that has aptly represented Good Shepherd for many years.

CONTINUING SAGA OF THE SAFE

One of the "out of the box" ideas from the 75th Anniversary committee is an attempt to open and remove an old safe that hasn't been opened or moved in decades, since we lost the combination. We knew it would be hard to accomplish, but not this hard....

A group gathered to move the safe to a different location where it could be cracked open or taken apart. Ouf-dah! It must weigh a ton - literally 2000 pounds - as it could barely be budged from its spot. Most certainly it could NOT go into the elevator and could likely damage the stairs if we got it that far.
