Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost
Ordinary Time, Proper 16
10:30 a.m. Worship and Church School
The Rev. Lisa Keppeler, Celebrant and Guest Preacher
Roland Woehr, Choirmaster and Organist
On his final Sunday with us last week, we held a cookout on the lawn to thank departing Rector Fr. Jon M. Richardson for his ministry at Good Shepherd, and to wish him well in his new endeavors.
During the coming weeks, Sunday worship will be led by guest priests while the vestry, in conversation with the Diocese, plans the next steps for Good Shepherd's continued ministry. Under lay leadership, morning prayer will be read from the Daily Office each Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall.
Church School continues to meet each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. The children gather in the front pews for the opening of the service, then leave before the readings for their own lessons and prayers. They re-join the congregation after the sermon for Holy Communion.
Welcome to the Memorial Church of the Good Shepherd
We gather as a community in order to reveal the gifts of the Spirit that are within each of us, and to worship God as faithfully and fully as we know how, endeavoring to fulfill our promises at baptism to seek and serve Christ in all persons, strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being. We are a church of traditional Episcopalians, progressive Christians, and committed seekers. Our parish is open to all who wish to test the idea that no life is complete without spiritual life. We cherish diversity and conviction, and respect the exploration of differences. Please join us!
Whoever you are, and wherever you are on the journey of faith, you are welcome at Good Shepherd.
