A Mighty Fortress

Getting up in time for the 8 oโ€™clock traditional service was worth it more than ever thanks to this group of horns along with by the Shepnaz choir!
This week marks the 502th anniversary of the day Martin Luther is said to have nailed his Theses to the door of All Saints' Church in Wittenberg,
a starting point of the churchโ€™s Reformation.
Luther wrote "A Mighty Fortress" which is called the "Battle Hymn of the Reformation" for the effect it had in increasing the support for the Reformers' cause.

At Shepherd Church, we believe deeply in serving others. This week we are partnering with local organization CleanTurn to provide cleaning services to those who are currently physically unable to do so themselves. CleanTurn employs former victims of human trafficking and people who have turned their life around after incarceration. We believe in this Christlike mission. Itโ€™s a blessing to serve our community while supporting their organization. Thank you John Rush, CleanTurn founder, (pictured), for speaking to our church this morning. God bless you and your mission to serve others!

One of our Life Groups, Full Armor Bikers, made an impact today by helping a senior adult with barn and yard cleanup. They included a ride down the historic National Highway, of course! Working Together - this is one of the things Life Groups at Shepherd love to do! Way to go!

"Will you commit yourself to support and encourage these parents as they endeavor to fulfill their responsibilities to this child and to assist by nurturing their growth toward spiritual maturity?"
"We will!"

Invite your teacher friends to Shepherd this Sunday!
We are honoring any and all teachers for everything they do!

Mamas! Save the date: September 21st at 10am is our first Mothering Together meeting! All moms are invited.

Wow! They raised $640+!
(and they stopped often for snacks, just like Full Armor Bikers...)

SEPTEMBER 15th - 9:30 AM
This fall we will begin offering 1-hour DISCOVERY classes, taught by Pastor Grant on Sunday mornings. You can take one of these classes, or all of them - each week is a different topic and you will have several chances to jump into whichever class interests you. The next one on September 15th will help you discover spiritual gifts โ€“ everyone, I mean ALL of you are gifted in some way! This class will not only help you figure that out, but you will also learn how to use your gifts to serve others. We aim to keep you learning and growing!
Email Pastor Grant to let him know you'll be there!
