Lectionary Bible Study
Sundays at 9:15 am
Lectionary Bible Study is being held in the Library downstairs. Join us each Sunday at 9:15 as we work through the appointed readings for the following Sunday. From beginners through Bible scholars, all are equally sure to gain something from our time together. All are welcome. Bibles will be available or you can bring your own.
Sundays at 10:45 am
Children’s Church starts at the beginning of the 10:45 service and there is no Children’s Message. The children will still return at the Peace. This will give them more time for their lesson and worship. Please take your children ages 5-12 to the Children’s Sunday School room (the former library) before you go to church.

2018 Good Shepherd Men’s Retreat - Confidence in God
January 15-18, 2018, Monastery of the Holy Spirit, Conyers, GA.
The cost for the program, housing and meals is approximately $350. “Confidence in God is a choice that isn’t always easy to make, yet is imperative to make the choice. It is only then that our true journey towards God can begin. Awareness of the Divine Presence and discernment of God’s will are foundational in the spiritual life. Through these principles found in the Christian classic, ‘Abandonment to Divine Providence’, we will explore the key elements of our pilgrimage.” Payments are due by November 30. Half scholarships are available. Contact Fr Bill for more information and the sign up sheet in the hallway.
