A God-Lived Life Stewardship Challenge

A God-Lived Life: A life lived for others

This month, the particular focus of the God-lived life is a life lived for others, a life of generosity. God allows us the opportunity to serve and love one another, especially those who are part of our communities.

Our challenge card this month will focus on being a good neighbor. What makes someone a good neighbor? How can you show God’s love to others by being a good neighbor? How can our church be a good neighbor to our community? How can we be present for others?

May God bless us as we live a God-lived life, serving others!

Everyone Outreach

Have you ever thought, “I wish our congregation was more outreach-minded”? If so, you’re not alone.

For this reason, Good Shepherd is participating in an exciting new program called Everyone Outreach. The program will help us build a culture of outreach so that every ministry and every member is encouraged and equipped to reach the lost in our community.

How does Everyone Outreach work?

Everyone Outreach kicks off with a 2-day workshop on Friday, October 22nd at 6:00 p.m. at Good Shepherd Lutheran. The interactive workshop will help us discover some of our hidden thought habits that may keep us from being active in outreach. Then, we will learn ways to change those thought habits so that, as a result, our outreach actions change as well. Each participant will leave the workshop with sustainable ways to personally help build our congregation’s outreach culture.

Following the workshop, Everyone Outreach will provide us with tools to help us continue building a culture focused on reaching the lost.

How do I register for the workshop?

We encourage every member of our congregation to attend the workshop and participate. In fact, the more members that attend, the more likely it is that our culture shift will be successful!

End Times: Fact vs Fiction

People are rightly disturbed as they observe the destruction of the social and natural environment. But most of them are unaware of the impending total destruction of all things when Christ returns. Join us on Sunday, October 24th at 9:15 a.m. for a three-part Bible study during which we will sort Biblical truth from popular sentiment regarding the final days and moment of this world as we know it.
