2016 GSUMC Mac N Cheese Church Fletcher Place small ver no click for more info

         Good Shepherd has an exciting mission partnership with Fletcher Place Community Center.  Good Shepherd has committed to providing 150 boxes of Mac ‘n Cheese for Fletcher Place Community Center’s food pantry.  At first that may seem like a lot of Mac ‘n Cheese (1,800 boxes per year), but if you think about the fact that we have on average at least 160 people in worship service each Sunday, that is only 1 box per month per person.

There is a specially marked tote for the Mac ’n Cheese in the lobby.  So start watching for weekly sales at your favorite grocery store.  There will be regular reminders and if Sunday school classes or Bible study groups would like to take an entire month, that would be great.  If you have any questions, please see Dick Nye.

Good Shepherd will also continue to be the Flag Ship Church for Fletcher Place and the Mission Kids will be doing their usual outstanding job of shopping.  What a blessing to be able to share the love of Christ with people right here in our own community!  Thank you in advance for your faithfulness.

This program features biblical, Christ-centered teaching that focuses on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one. The DVD seminar features nationally respected grief experts and real-life stories of people, followed by a small group discussion about what was viewed. Participants have related how helpful the information and follow-up discussions were to them. 
Many grieving people find they are only beginning the work of healing when friends or family have returned to their daily life routines. Too often people, including Christians, tend to stuff their grief instead of allowing it to do the God-given work for which it is intended. Don’t allow fear of what others may think to keep you from what could help you. Confidentiality is very much a part of this program. 
Your bereavement experience may be recent or not so recent. You will find encouragement, comfort and help in grieving the death of a spouse, child, parent, sibling, other family member, or friend. No matter what the cause of your loved one’s death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You will learn how to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief and that you do not need to live in bondage to certain emotions. You will learn valuable information about facing your new normal in life and renewing your hope for the future.
