The month of September is now upon us, and we have a number of events coming up.

The Rev. Joel Dingman, our Ministry Developer, has been named to a new position by Bp. Smylie and Joel will no longer be worshiping with us on a monthly basis.  On Thursday, September 13, at 6:00, we will have a time to share with Joel and Nancy what their ministry with us has meant.  A meat dish will be provided and we are asked to bring a salad or dessert to share in a pot luck meal.  We plan to close the evening with Compline.

It won't be long before the work of replacing the roof on the church begins.  During the first week of September, the pews and the rest of the furniture in the church will be moved into the parish hall.  This is where we will worship, have coffee hour, and our various meetings until the roof work is completed.

Members of the Commission on Ministry [COM] will come to Good Shepherd on Thursday, September 27.    They will be here to interview Steve Christy, to share in a pot luck meal at 6:00, and then to visit with the congregation.  This is a meeting that is a part of Steve's journey toward ordination as a priest for Good Shepherd.

Daughters of the King [DOK] will begin meeting again on Monday, September 17.  We have been meeting in the home of one of our members recently, and this will likely continue.  DOK is a women's order of the Episcopal Church and its focus is prayer, study and evangelism.  Women of the church are encouraged to investigate if this is an organization for them.  For answers to your questions, visit with president Marcie Cliver or with the Rev. JoAnne Moore.

Plans are being made for a combined Worship service with Christ Church in Newcastle.  More details will follow later in the month.
