Shepherds of the Church of God

Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained by his own blood.

Acts 20:28

At the end of 2022, we have a renewed sense of gratitude for the shepherds of the church who have gone before us and ensured that God’s hope and healing have been made known from generation to generation. Their faithfulness, protection, love, and sacrifice have given us glimpses of God’s care for us. In response, we are called take up the “crook” as shepherds of the church in our day.

In worship this fall, we’ll be exploring what it means to be shepherds of the church within the natural world (Oct. 30), the greater community (Nov. 6), and the congregation (Nov. 13). On Sunday, Nov. 13, we’ll make our financial pledges for the coming year, committing to steward the places God has entrusted to us.

Pledge cards will be mailed to members and friends in early November, and extra copies will be available at the church on Consecration Sunday (Nov. 13).

You may also make an online pledge of giving for 2023. Responses are viewed only by the financial secretaries.
