Stewardship: Small Group Gatherings
This is an exciting time in the life of our parish. In the past few years we have opened our second campus, started a new school to serve our neighbors at The Hill, and expanded our Windsor facilities to keep pace with our growth. In all of this, we are witnessing the transforming power of God in Christ, and we are witnessing the ways that we are formed by our parish community and the ministry that we share.
We invite you to join us for a small group stewardship gathering this fall. We will gather in parishioners’ homes where we will meet others in the parish and hear about the plans for 2019. We will preview the results of the parish-wide survey and update you on the progress of the parish’s strategic planning process. These small gatherings will help us continue to build community as we grow.
We encourage you to select a gathering where you don’t know the hosts. It’s a chance to meet new folks and strengthen the community that we all share. Please note that some of the gatherings are kid-friendly – kids are welcome.
Thank you for your support of Good Shepherd. We hope to see you at a small group gathering.
