Meeting # 886 5776 5704
Good Shepherd has reopened the sanctuary for Sunday worship service. We will continue to offer remote worship via Zoom. Meetings are taking place in person and outside groups have resumed usage of the building.
Holiday Boutique - Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is sponsoring a Holiday Boutique on November 20, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. We will be selling holiday décor and gifts and sponsoring a Craft Fair, a Pie and Bake Sale, and a raffle with a variety of gift baskets and gift certificates. Hotdogs and soup will be available for lunch and take-out. Proceeds will benefit the ministries of Good Shepherd and services for refugees. For more information, please call or send a text message to one of the co-chairs -- Nancy Serge at 518-542-8808 or Marjorie Raymond at 518-424-6043.
Cookie Walk - The Good Shepherd Unit of Women of the ELCA is planning for the Cookie Walk that will be held on December 11. Patti Kopach will serve as chair of the Cookie Walk and will preside at the meeting. We will be looking for volunteers to bake cookies and help with the sale. For more information, please contact Patti Kopach at 518-788-0386.
Men's Shelter Meals - Again this year, the cluster churches will be preparing meals for the Overflow Shelter at First Lutheran that opens on November 1, 2021. The meal needs to be prepared for about 15 people and consist of an entrée, vegetable or salad and dessert. The shelter is requesting no fish or pork and it is not necessary to provide a salad dressing with the salad. It has worked out well when three people prepare a meal so that no one is doing the whole meal.
These are Good Shepherd's dates: For 2021 - November 9 and December 7. For 2022 - January 4, February 1, March 1, March 29 and April 26. If you would like to help with this special ministry, please speak with Danny Patrick.
New Library - A new addition to Good Shepherd is our "Little Free Library". A bit of gentle outreach to the youth of the neighborhood. This box contains books for Kids of all ages that can be taken and enjoyed without charge. They can also add their own books as they finish and wish to share.
Wednesday Bible Study - The Bible Study group meets in person in the Blue Room at the church every Wednesday from 1 pm to 2 pm. You can also join by conference call. Contact Bertie Cole for information at 518-626-0657. All are welcome!
