Weekly Devotions

Here is the Blue Sheet home devotional for the week of Sunday, November 12th. Please download and use in your household to sanctify your home with the Word and prayer this week!


GOOD SHEPHERD BOOK CLUB – MERE CHRISTIANITY ~ The next book we’ll be reading and discussing together is Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. We’ll start meeting to discuss on Sunday, December 10. Lewis lays out a rational case for the Christian faith. The chief benefit of this book is in modeling for us how to begin to think clearly about what we believe and how to defend it. Go to gsslcms.org/bookclub or see the bulletin board for more information.

SPECIAL COLLECTION FOR AC/HEATING REPAIR ~ A special offering envelope is on the table in the Narthex. This is to defray the cost of the bathroom and office AC/heating unit that had to be replaced at a cost of $6,845.00. Please prayerfully consider helping with this special need.

ADVENT RECEPTION ~ Pastor and Katie Schuermann would like to say “Blessed Advent” to all of you by providing the refreshments in the fellowship hall on Sunday, Dec. 3. Please join us!

NATIVITY WALK ~ On Sunday, Dec. 3, during Pastor and Katie’s Advent Reception, you are invited to view the nativity set collections displayed by fellow members. If you would like to display a nativity, you may set up on Sat. Dec 2 between 9-11 am.

WEDNESDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY ~ Y’all come (Men and women!) to the Wednesday morning Bible study. Pastor Schuermann will be teaching through the topic of “Heaven and Hell”. We’ll begin on Wednesday, November 15th at 9:30 a.m. Materials for the class cost $9.99 and you can send an email to churchoffice@gsslcms.org or speak to pastor.
