Aaron Stonewell has accepted a position at Thompson Health and although we are very excited for him in this new adventure we are sad to lose him as our weekly nursery care giver at late worship. If you are interested in filling this paid position please speak with Gayle Hendershot. The candidate must have a love of children, be willing to go through a background check and commit to being at late worship each week. We also need more volunteers for the nursery. We want two people in the nursery for the protection of our children. We try to schedule volunteers no more than once each month, less often depending on the number of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering in the nursery, please see Gayle Hendershot.

Imagine summer… sunny days, warm evenings, camping under the stars. What better way to celebrate God’s gift of summer than sharing great bands in a huge amphitheater with thousands of other Christians! We are planning a trip to Creation Festival in Mt. Union Pennsylvania from June 26 through June 30. It is a great opportunity to grow closer to God and to each other. We’ll also meet fellow Christians from all over the Northeast. With over 40 bands plus uplifting speakers and funny comedians, it may be the most memorable event of your summer. To learn more about it, google Creationfest Northeast. Download the videos, check out the bands, and explore the fun of the Creation experience. Please contact Roxann Muller, Steve & Cindy Hemingway, or Aaron Stonewell as soon as possible if you are interested in going. Tickets are available for only $105 through Mar. 15. The price increases slightly each month, but it is well worth the price of admission. Join us!
What’s the scoop on our Pastoral transition? Most of what is happening right now is preparation. Our regional church requires us to fill out a form called a “Self Study.” They are looking to get a flavor of what Good Shepherd is like. It also has lots of numbers such as attendance, giving and service trends. The council is responsible to see that this gets filled out. They have divided it into parts and given those parts to those who are responsible for them.
Bob Smith has met with the Board of Elders, which our constitution requires, to coordinate the appointment of a Call Committee. Both they and the council will prayerfully consider who God is calling to that task.
Just to give insight into how long it may be before we have another Pastor here. The typical search takes from 18 – 24 months. We want you to know that so that you are not anxious about the progress we’re making at this point.
