Remember, Rejoice, Rededicate! Throughout the Bible, the Lord reminds His people to tell all generations of the LORD'S wonderful works. (Psalm 105:2) Part of what that means for us as a church is that we must remember and celebrate how God has worked through Good Shepherd.
Good Shepherd will be celebrating its 65th Anniversary on Sunday Morning, May 23rd.
Former Pastor Richard Ziehr will be preaching at both services. We will have a reception at 9 AM and a video presentation put together by Bea Daily starting at 9:30 AM in the sanctuary.
We will be REMEMBERING as we take a look back to rediscover how our church came into being; what its early ministry was like, and how it has grown and changed over the years. Sixty-five years ago, God gave men and women a vision to build a church in Shalimar. Though it cost them dearly in terms of money and time, they did it. For many, this work has outlived them. While saints of old now worship in glory, their spiritual great-grandchildren continue to worship here.
We will be REJOICING as we celebrate all that God has done for us over the past 65 years. In all the bad news in the world round us, this is Very Good News and cause for celebration!
We will be REDEDICATING ourselves to the work of the Lord. This ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION will be a starting point for the future, both on an individual basis and as a church. Looking back gives us hope and a reason to rededicate ourselves to the work of the Lord.
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58
