_MG_5625Sunday, September 11th 
is EBENEZER Sunday!

(in other words "God is our Stone of Help”)
10:30 a.m. -- One Worship Service of Thanksgiving
12:00 p.m. -- Share a meal together on the Front Lawn

Ebenezer Sunday is a day Good Shepherd has set aside to look back over the past year and remember all the ways God has helped us to grow in our ministry. We have many things to be thankful for and on September 11th we will name those things and recognize that our ministry isn’t finished yet but we have come this far because the Lord has helped us. Join us and invite your family, neighbors, and friends as we raise our “Ebenezer” or “stone of help” and give thanks to God who is our “help” not only in times of trouble but always.
