Wow! What a wonder-filled turnout for our "Holy Conferencing" day of worship and church business, with long-time members, newcomers, and LOTS of kids enjoying following in the footsteps of our buddy-shepherd Jesus - to be in Jesus' flock, and to become shepherd-buddies ourselves!
We started in our beautiful church sanctuary, and after the passing of the peace, worship continued in the fellowship hall after some refreshments, Our children practiced being a shepherd (thanks for being the sheep, Hollis Hartford!), we all made shepherd pins that we we can wear in our community, we celebrated the life of the church with people putting sticky notes on the wall to highlight key events, stewardship, and discipleship initiatives, we prayed and listened to Pastor John Blossom's message "The Buddy System," and we conducted official church business with a brief Church Council meeting before concluding with a prayer, a joyful hymn, and a benediction. Thanks to EVERYONE who helped to make this a powerful day of faith!
Our podcast below includes key announcements and Pastor Johns sermon, and the church council meeting. Sorry for the use of an old slide for this podcast! Sermon text is here and below the podcast, and below that is a printable guide to being in the flock of Jesus being a shepherd like Jesus in our church, our homes, and in the world, which was included in our bulletin. Thank you, flock! Thank you, shepherds! Have a blessed week!
