Five Loaves- Weekly Scripture Reflection

December 5-11, 2016 – Third Sunday of Advent, Year A
Be strong, fear not!  - Isaiah 35:4

 Isaiah’s prophecy reminds the Israelites that God has not abandoned them – even in the darkest times. How do you keep hope in the gloomy days of December? The candles of the Advent wreath this week remind us to rejoice – Gaudete - in the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ – the Light of the World. This is our faith, not just for dark days, but for all time. 
About The Five LoavesLike the scripture story reveals, we believe miracles still happen when people are willing to offer their simple gifts for the good of others. Please share this free weekly video reflection. Feel free to post, tweet, or forward a link to those who need to hear the Good News!

 

 

Tree of Love

TREE OF LOVE TOY COLLECTION IS APPROACHING

We still have tags in the baskets on the table underneath the Tree of Love.  Please take one with you today to help make Christmas special for a child. December 11, 1 pm. is the day and time to have dropped off your new, unwrapped toys, clothes and/or gift cards with the tag affixed to it to the Outreach Closet (northeast corner of the Narthex) or by the Tree of Love. Sorting and boxing of the items for transport to the Catholic Charities Christmas Store will happen on December 11, 1:45 to 2:45 p. m. Contact Debbie Eisenhower, 962-2368 or Terry Piere at 268-4753. by Dec. 10th.  Hope you can help!  Great opportunity for teens wanting service hours!  

 

Help Feed Our Teens

Help Feed Our Teens!
Good Shepherd families have helped feed our teens on Sunday evenings for many years. But, planning a meal for 40 plus can be a rather overwhelming undertaking!
  We need some prep, some cooks and lots of people who enjoy helping.  Cooks and donors are always invited to join us for dinner, experiencing the "fruits of their labor", and the exuberance and life of our young church.
 Go to our Sign Up Genius page  to see how and when you can help.
