First Summer Evening Worship Service


IMG_0285Thirty-two worshipers gathered on Wednesday, July 1, for Good Shepherd’s first Worship In the Backyard With Food and Fellowship evening service. Pastor Mike Blair presided at the service of Holy Communion. He, with accompaniment by Brooke Joyce playing the melodica, led the congregation in singing Ben Larson’ liturgy Behold, I Make All Things New and hymns.

Chairs were set up in a shaded area near one of the garden beds on the south side of the church. Pastor Blair’s message and prayers, choice of scriptures and hymns, and the setting celebrated reverence for nature and our place in God’s creation. The picnic potluck, with grilled brats and hotdogs and a perfect selection of salads and desserts, was served in the Fellowship Hall on this cool evening.

These 5:30 Wednesday evening worship services with Holy Communion will continue through August and be held outdoors followed by a potluck meal as announced. Consult the News/Events Blog or the WORSHIP Tab for schedule updates.
