Hello my fellow CGSers!
It has been a privilege to service on your Council for the past 6 years and on the property committee for 9. They have been challenging years and also very rewarding. Accomplishments far outweigh any failures and are way too many to speak of here.
One big accomplishment, is that we are moving forward with much needed work on our bathrooms and kitchen. With much of the work being done so far by Skye Gordineer & Steve Weirauch, and other members of the property committee and Church Council. We are very excited to show the progress to you in our upcoming congregation meeting. Make sure you all attend!! We need all of you to participate, and we pray you will like what you see!This is a time CGS surely needs us all to step-up and volunteer your time and talent. PLEASE when asked do lend your talent and when asked for volunteers step forward or volunteer where you see a need, talk to one of the council members. Please let us know what you think. I asked someone what I should write about and they gave me a great suggestion. To point out how this congregation takes care of each other and we how much love we have for one another. We recognize and celebrate for taking care of people outside of this church. We need to do the same on how we care for one other, by visiting each other, giving comfort, by truly listening and caring for each other. I have seen it in so many ways and by hearing about it from others. This is one of the main reasons I love this community. Hope Russell may God rest her beautiful soul was the 1st person that talked with me on my first Sunday I came here. Her warmth and caring lead me to want to be a part of this faith community. I am continually amazed by our community’s generosity both financially and emotionally. May God bless you all.
As always in God’s blessing,
Christ the Good Shepherd
