We of The Good Shepherd are a welcoming and caring congregation, courageous as followers of Jesus through community and worship. As individuals and as a community of faith, how, where, why, and on whom we spend our money speaks volumes about our core values, what we believe and what are the important issues in our lives.
“Rooted in Love” is this year’s stewardship theme. If we think of the roots of a tree and put a name to each of them representing the many ministries of our Church, we would identify all the ways that our congregation is at work in our community. Our gifts to The Good Shepherd are used for worship, but also for services to those in need, and for social justice in our community. It is about giving to the church and other places we care about, places where God is at work. Let us give generously as God has blessed us!
Our annual campaign to raise the funds necessary for our Church to continue its work in our community will begin on Sunday, January 9, with Celebration Sunday two weeks later, January 23. Two speakers from our church family will present their personal stories as to how they came to The Good Shepherd, what about our Church and its missions is important to them, and why they support it financially through their pledges of support. Please consider your financial commitment and step up to pledge this Celebration Sunday.
