Our Church is in the midst of one of its most exciting challenges ever! God is blessing the work of our church so much we are busting out at the seams! This may be among the most significant times in our history. It will be very special and challenging time for all of us. Because you have a sincere love for our church, we invite you to VISION SUNDAY.
What is the vision?
Webster’s tells us its,
1) the act or power of seeing
2) a thought, concept, or object formed be the imagination
3) a lovely or charming sight! Our church family has a vision. Just use your imagination.
Ø More space efficient & roomy sanctuary for all to worship?
Ø Increased facilities in our church?
Ø A new larger, cleaner, safer parking lot to welcome all who wish to come to Good Shepherd to worship?
If you can imagine the possibilities of more joy, more worshipers, more programs of faith, more learning the ways of God… then, together YES INDEED, we can accomplish that vision!!!
This is the vision of the leadership of our church & now its time for ALL to step forward. We have become weary of the many years of kicking around loose stones and filling holes and watching the under-utilization of our sanctuary. We have made so many plans that never came to fruition. Its time to act! Edith Wharton famously said “look, not at visions but at realities.” We say look, not at our current realities but our VISION of the future. The future is NOW! We must face the reality that visions are only that; without the dedication and support and hard work to make the vision come true. With the help of GOD, we can accomplish even what seems insurmountable.
In Luke 14: 27 & 28 we read: “Whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it?”
On June 3rd, the 9 & 10:30 AM services will be a Visionary Worship Service as we celebrate how God is guiding our church to its future. You will be asked to write your commitment down on the form provided. It is your personal commitment and is completely anonymous. There will be no pressure. We only ask you to prayerfully consider what you can give to the important and necessary projects at hand. What you write down is between you and God.
You are invited downstairs for some special treats, including danish at the first service, and hot dogs at the second service. Bagels & coffee will also be available as you enjoy fellowship with your church family.
The Directors of Vision Sunday
Family isn’t an important thing. It’s Everything!! At Bizy Byrdz Summer Camp your child is everything to us.
What makes us different from all the other camps out there is that our counselors are well educated, nurturers who pride themselves in empowering our future leaders thru fun and learning. At Bizy Byrdz Summer Day Camp, your child will experience a well-balanced, diverse camp program. We encourage interaction with others and allow for the mastery of new skills. We help build confidence and stress the importance of teamwork.
Parents will be amazed at how the camp experience can enhance their child development in such a short period of time. We are proud to have created a unique atmosphere where everyone is considered family and friendships and memories created can last a lifetime.
Full Day and Half DAY OFFERED
Includes early drop off and late pick-up. Also includes daily lunch, snacks, trips,
2 camp T-shirts, water bottle, wristband, backpack and transportation to and from Camp.
