MARTIN LUTHER PLAY
Join us on the Oct. 14 & 15 for part 1 and Oct. 21 & 22 for part 2 of a play about Martin Luther. The play will be performed on Saturday evening and at late worship. Early worship will follow a more traditional service.
FALL GROWTH GROUPS
So what’s all the fuss about The Reformation? It happened a long time ago! This fall, our growth groups will look at what was happening in the world that led to one of the most significant events in history. “A Man Named Martin” is a DVD study about the religious, cultural, and political conditions of the time and how God worked through Martin Luther to direct the growth of His Church. Please sign up on the sheet on the Wittenberg Door
Group A: Meets on alternating Mondays at 9:30 AM beginning Oct. 9 in the Teen Room.
Group B: Led by Kathey Drennan will be held on alternating Sundays evenings. The next meeting is on Oct. 8 at 287 Silver Creek Circle, Clifton Springs.
Group C: Led by Roxann Muller will be held Oct 9, 23, 30, Nov. 13, 20 at 7 PM. This group will meet at 84 Arlington Park, Canandaigua
Group D: Led by Pastor Don will be meeting this Wednesday evenings at 7 PM. This group will meet at church.
This year is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and some great plans are underway for the fall! We will be doing the drama “The Trial of Martin Luther.” This will give us insight into the amazing ways God worked through this simple monk to grow His church.
Our plan is to do the play during worship on Sat., Oct. 14 @ 5:30 PM and Sunday, Oct. 15 @ 10:45 AM. The second half of the play will be on Sat., Oct. 21 @ 5:30 PM & Sun., Oct. 22 @10:45 AM. This is part of our Reformation Celebration. On Reformation Sunday, Oct. 29 we’d like to encourage you to join us for Late Worship @ 10:45 AM, where we’ll be singing the liturgy. Following the service you’re invited to a Potluck supper. How about bringing a German dish? Bring a mug and we’ll provide the root beer! More details on this will be coming. Help us celebrate by stepping back in history to the beginning of our denomination.
DRESS A GIRL – SAT. NOV 4 – 10 AM - 3PM
A national mission project is finding a new home at Good Shepherd. “Dress a Girl” is a sewing project which creates dresses for girls in need someplace in the world. We are happy to be providing a work site for this worthy mission. All who are interested in sewing or contributing to this cause, please contact Roxann Muller. The dresses are very simple in design and sewing.
ELECTION DAY BAKE SALE – Tuesday, Nov. 7
Election Day is about a month away, but Pastor has already had people asking if we’ll be having a Bake Sale. He even had someone who don’t vote here ask about it. So, warm up your ovens and get ready, the Election Day Bake Sale is in the works. We need people to both bake and then work that day. The signup sheet is on the Wittenberg door. Last year was tremendous. We know this year’s election is not quite as big, but every dollar we raise helps to feed those in need. We thank you for your support.
“LUTHER” MOVIE, NOV. 10
As a wind up to our Reformation Celebration we will be showing the movie “Luther” on Friday, Nov. 10 at 7 PM – Martin’s birthday! You can sign up on your connection card this week.
