Update from Good Shepherd (January 30, 2020)

Greetings!


REGULAR SCHEDULE
        Divine Services are Sundays at 10:00 AM.
        Sunday School is on Sundays at 8:45 AM. 
        Adult Bible Class meets on Sundays at 8:45 AM and on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM.  The Adult Bible Class on Wednesday repeats the previous Sunday's lesson.

FELLOWSHIP OUTINGS
There are three outings for you to enjoy as fellow members of Good Shepherd.  Of course, you are encouraged to invite friends to join us too.  Perhaps they would be more comfortable learning about Christians in these informal settings before a more intimidating walk into church for a Divine Service.
1)  Super Bowl party at the parsonage, Sunday, February 2 at 5:00 PM.  The official kick off time is 6:20 PM, but you are welcome to come any time after 5:00 PM to enjoy some food, chat, and sign up for squares.  (Don't know what that is?  It is a chance to win a prize at no cost to you.  It also allows a boring game to still have some entertainment value.)  Deadline for squares will be 6:10 PM.  While an RSVP will not be necessary to get into our house, it would still be nice to know how many are coming.  You may reply to welsnovi@aol.com.  There is also a SignUp Genius web site floating out there somewhere, but I can't find the web address for it.
2Dinner at Randy & Jean's.  Randy & Jean Nabozny will be hosting this even at their home in Chelsea.  Dinner will be Friday, February 14th.  Arrive after 6 pm, with dinner around 7:30 pm. Please RSVP to Jean at jrauchholz@gmail.com no later than February 9th to ensure an accurate count for dinner.  If you would like to join in the fun, we are in need of salad, appetizers, and dessert.  

TEDDY BEAR DRIVE

During the month of March, we will be collecting teddy bears which will then be donated through Ascension Providence Park to children who are in St. John's Children's Hospital downtown Detroit and who are admitted to the ER at Ascension Providence Park.  Teddy bears are to be new.  Used and even gently used teddy bears are not permitted due to germs or other contaminates that may come from someone's home.  Drop-offs to Good Shepherd can be made on Sundays, during office hours, or by appointment.

OFFICE HOURS
        Regular office hours at Good Shepherd will be Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM. While there may be some flexibility to this schedule, we will try to keep it as regular as possible.

BAD WEATHER POLICY FOR SERVICES AT GOOD SHEPHERD
        We will always have services as scheduled at Good Shepherd.  Since I live across the parking lot, I can get to the church no matter how bad the weather gets.  Even if the service is just me and my family, we will be here.  For everyone else, please use your God-given common sense to determine whether or not you will get on the road to attend any service when the weather is bad.  We don't want anyone to risk his or her life to be here.  But if you do venture out, the scheduled service will take place.  It may be only a handful with a cappella singing and/or spoken liturgy, but we will be here.
        Bible Classes and meetings may be canceled due to weather.  Check your email regarding announcements to see if any of those scheduled events is canceled.  If there is no email about it, it is not canceled.  But again, use common sense to determine if you can make it, and call the pastor to let him know if you will not be coming.
