Season of Pentecost 2021
A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR CANDACE
Here we are in a season of change, the Season of Pentecost, the season of the Holy Spirit known as the “birthday of the church.” It is the time when the Holy Spirit in the form of flames descended upon the apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Book of Acts. The Holy Spirit allowed the apostles to speak in other languages, and they started preaching the Word of Jesus to the Jews while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks as recorded in the Book of Acts.
For us at Good Shepherd, we continue to preach the word and the church continues to be a blessing, even with so much going on around us. We continue to cope with COVID and all that changed our lives in the past year. We, undoubtedly, have been tested in many ways, yet there is hope.
We are “A People of Hope.” Yes, there is hope as the church and the world around us prepare to move forward in Jesus’ name. The Season of Pentecost reminds us of the amazing love of Christ as we are able to worship together. For us, it is new, it is different. We worship together even though some of us cannot be in the same place.
We are a church with “Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors” – a church that actively reaches out with the Good News of Jesus Christ, and where relationships are made. We are committed to be disciples of Jesus, witnessing to and through the community that we are a place to worship and to serve others.
We have members serving in mission and ministries that reach out to those in need in the community and beyond. Our mission team is very passionate about reaching out and blessings others.
Our youth are active in the life of Good Shepherd, and children are welcomed and will experience a warm reception during worship. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14).
Whether you are looking for a church home to nurture and grow in your faith, or are visiting the area and looking for a place to worship, Good Shepherd extends a heartfelt invitation to you. We share an ongoing commitment to devoting our time, talents, and treasures to God’s work through his Son, Jesus Christ.
We invite you to share the joy of the Lord through worship, learning, and fellowship. Feel free to join us each Sunday in the Sanctuary, or on Facebook Live at 10:30 a.m. We pray that you will experience a warm welcome and a sweet spirit of fellowship when you visit with us at Good Shepherd.
Helping people connect to Christ through this church, is one of the most blessed things a pastor gets to do! If you are interested in connecting with this church or would like more information, please contact Pastor Candace at 215-638-4090 or .
