Tuesdays In February Are Exciting At The Church Of The Good Shepherd

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd, 680 Racebrook Road, Orange. prepares for Lent with First Tuesday on February 6 and Blessing Bags

First Tuesdays at Good Shepherd are family-friendly evenings of community-building, service projects, and prayer. We start at 6:45, and end at 8 p.m. Folks of all ages (kids in pjs even!) are welcome to come to the parish hall for fun and fellowship.

In February our get-together falls in the week before the beginning of Lent. Our topic for discussion will be Lent and why we give things up or take things on as a practice in this penitential season of the Church. Are we meant to feel sad or guilty during lent? Or are we meant to intentionally engage how we are living our lives,
contemplate whether we are satisfied with it, and discern where and how we might want to make changes. Lent ends not with the great pain of Good Friday but with the great joy of Easter morning. How do we get there?

Our service project will be putting together “blessing bags” for the homeless. These Zip-Lok bags will hold a variety of single serving food items, personal hygiene products, warm clothing, and prayer cards and bibles. During our time together on the 6th we’ll be making prayer cards to go in the packs, and packing the bags for next-day distribution.

Donations of the items requested must be at the church no later than 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday, February 6th. The First Tuesday crew is looking for donations of Socks, Handwarmers, Scarves, Hats, Gloves, Beef Jerky; Breakfast and granola bars, Squeezables (apple sauce), Packaged peanut butter or cheese crackers, Toothpaste,
Toothbrushes, Hotel-size Shampoos, Lotions, and Soaps, Sanitary wipes and hand sanitizers, Small bibles. All are welcome.

A full schedule of services and events are planned for the Lenten Season which begins in February. We start with our traditional SHROVE Tuesday Pancake Supper on Tuesday, February 13th from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Parish Hall. Please join us for delicious pancakes served by the parish youth.

The Church of the Good Shepherd will offer Ashes-On- The-Go on Ash Wednesday, February 14th at two times this year: 12 Noon to 1 p.m, and 5:30-6:30 p.m.  Drive up to the front doors of the church to receive ashes and pray a short prayer, then be on your way to work or home. At 7 p.m. there will be a regular Ash Wednesday service at the church with Holy Eucharist. All are welcome to receive ashes at the Church of the Good Shepherd.
