With the numbers increasing for COVID-19 and for the stress on our healthcare system, we made some modifications to some of the programming and worship formats at Shepherd. Here’s the latest…
Our worship: We held worship in person for a few weeks and it was wonderful to be in person. However, the increase in those ill and the new Executive Order have led us to make some changes. We are now worshiping outside again for Parking Lot Worship. Join us each Sunday at 9:00 am online or in our parking lot. We ask that you enter at the southern most part of the lot (towards Door C) and make your way towards the north part of the lot. We will have Communion supplies and bulletins if you did not previously print one or have a mobile device. We will be broadcasting again on 88.9FM. We ask that if you have your windows down that you are wearing a mask. Join Us.
Christmas Eve Service: Join us in the parking lot at either 5:00 or 7:00 pm or online for worship. See information about Parking Lot Worship above. We will also be holding a Candlelight Christmas Eve Service from our sanctuary that will be online at 10 pm.
Our building: The only activity that is currently occurring in the building is our childcare/preschool and limited staff presence. The office is open but we ask that you drop items off at Door G rather than coming into visit us. While we miss seeing all of your faces, this helps to ensure that the childcare program has distance from the visitors. Feel free to email or call the office at anytime though.
Our (other) gatherings: All other programming has moved to zoom for the month of December due to the Executive Order. See the eNews or speak with your group lead on details about the specifics. As always feel free to contact the office.
As Christmas approaches, we are blessed to have this wonderful community and thank you all for your patience and your willingness to be the shepherd to others.
In God’s Peace, Your Shepherd Staff
