Smile for the Camera!
We are going to produce our own Pictorial Directory so we need your family picture for our computer. Consult the “We Don’t Have Your Picture” List in Hardtner Hall, send us a pic at firstname.lastname@example.org, or get our Sunday Worship Host/Hostess to snap a shot before you leave this morning!!!
We also need your email address. We would like to get the pictures in ASAP so we can print the directory at the beginning of August.
Chateau du Lac Birthday Party...July 21, 2016
For newcomers to Good Shepherd, let me explain. Chateau du Lac is the high rise apartment complex at the corner of Ryan and Mill streets. We have enjoyed outreach ministry there for 5 years. We will host their monthly birthday party on Thursday, July 21, at 2:00 p.m. in their Rec. Room. And, MEMBERS OF THE MCNEESE WOMEN’S BASKETBALL TEAM WILL HOST THIS PARTY WITH US. So, we will wear blue and gold this time
Here’s what you can do to help. Come and celebrate! Visit and assist in serving food! If you choose to help with refreshments (fruit, cheese, cookies, salty treats), please let me know. We always have terrific door prizes donated by members of the church. (Put them in the collection box in Hardtner Hall.) Children are welcome and bring lots of smiles to the party. We provide birthday gifts for the honored guests and favors for everyone who comes. The party lasts about one hour. Our last party had more than 80 guests.
Chateau news: Their Christmas food donations to our Food Pantry have continues with monthly donations. The Lenten Bible Study use of a DVD about the last 24 hours of Jesus life was very popular. We continue to have a faithful “congregation” for Holy Eucharist on the 2nd Monday of each month. Residents Minie Sweet-Goings and Diane Dotson serve as Lectors and james Doxey prints posters to remind folks.
We continue to assist these friends by donating gently used clothing and household items, which should be placed in the collection box.
So, again I say a huge “Thanks” to you for supporting this ministry with financial gifts and your time, talent and Christian hospitality. The perfect gift is one where you don’t expect anything in return. Everyone who helps with the Chateau Party, leaves feeling that they are the ones who were blessed! Show up and SMILE!
Peace and joy, Missy Shaddock, 439-9737.
