The Church of the Good Shepherd’s Youth Group invites everyone to attend their Annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Feast on Tuesday Feb. 17 beginning at 6 p.m. in the Parish Hall. Everyone is encouraged to bring a board game to complement this evening of family fun.
The youth group looks forward to taking over the church’s commercial kitchen! Under the supervision of adult volunteers, the entire event will be prepared and served by the youths. When they get together, a fun time is guaranteed. New youth group members are always welcome. In February, the CGS Youth Group meets every other Friday, beginning on Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. for an Ice Cream Social. For more information, call the Parish Office.
On Sunday, Feb. 22, between 6-7:30pm, the Prayer Shawl Ministry will host a Pasta Supper in the Parish Hall. Anyone interested in learning how to knit a prayer shawl is invited to join the crafters; a small and dedicated group who create beautiful prayer shawls all year round.
Good Shepherd is looking to grow its group and would like to help other religious organizations start a Prayer Shawl Ministry. If interested, RSVP and come to the Pasta Supper to learn more. This is a wonderful ministry to share with individuals who need the comfort of a hug from a blessed prayer shawls.
It doesn’t take much to bring a group of people together when you offer good food and fellowship. This is evident every Wednesday when the Shepherd’s Table opens its doors between 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. for its free weekly lunch program with Bingo.
This week was a special week at the Shepherd’s Table as we celebrated its 4th anniversary. If you are in town on Wednesday, stop in and join the fun. Happy 4th Birthday, Shepherd’s Table!
All are welcome to join the many community programs and services at Good Shepherd, especially as we approach the Lenten Season.
