An Invitation to Worship
Lent 2018: A Season of Promise
But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
and don’t take yourself too seriously—take God seriously.
Micah 6:8 The Message (MSG)
Lent Worship Information - 2018
See the attached document for the full schedule:
Everything you need for worship is printed in the worship service bulletin handed out at the beginning of service.
It includes all of the prayers, music and lessons for the day.
No memorization needed!
Come and worship with us! You will be greeted and welcomed. You will feel the Holy Spirit surrounding you in love and care. Our Family of God awaits to open our hearts to you.
Worship at Shepherd is at the heart of growing in our mission. We gather weekly in prayer, litany, communion, and song. We hear, we learn, we witness, we grow in faith, and we are sent out to spread the Good News to all the world, and then we return the next Sunday. The repetition of worship deepens our faith and our commitment to God, to Christ, and to the Holy Spirit.
The children's sermon is part of our worship and includes children's bulletins with lessons for the day. Children of all ages are welcome to participate.
On the North wall of the Sanctuary is a table with candles.
You are invited to light a candle in memory of a loved one.
"Give thanks to the Lord, because he is good. His faithful love continues forever." Psalm 107:1-3
Communion Outside of Service
If for any reason you are unable to attend normal services, such as a hospital stay, extended illness, or another need to have communion brought to you, please contact the church office or the Pastor.
Arrangements can be made to bring communion to you or a loved one once a month, usually the 4th Sunday of the month or at another time convenient for you.
God bless you and keep you in His care.
