Sunday, July 27, 2014
Seventh Sunday after Pentecost
Ordinary Time, Proper 12

10:30 a.m. Worship and Church School
The Rev. Jon M. Richardson, Rector
Roland Woehr, Choirmaster and Organist

Guest preacher: The Rev. Dr. Elizabeth Kaeton
Rev. Elizabeth has visited Good Shepherd before, and many of us have heard of her because of her relationship with our rector. But aside from her ministry of forming people for the priesthood, Rev. Elizabeth has been a passionate advocate for justice ministries within and beyond The Episcopal Church for many years. She has been an active leader of the national Episcopal Women’s Caucus and is one of its past conveners. Currently she serves on the Board of Directors of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. She has been on the front lines of the women’s equality movement in The Episcopal Church for decades, and we are honored that she has joined us as we celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Women’s Ordination in The Episcopal Church.

Church School continues to meet each Sunday through the summer 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. 

Wednesday "community office hours" will resume in September.

Welcome to the
Memorial Church
of the Good Shepherd

Our church is a growing and welcoming community of people who endeavor 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 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.   
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.
