Come at 10 a.m. to help plan Good Shepherd’s outreach events for 2023. All are welcome.
Good Shepherd’s float in the Titusville Christmas Parade was a huge hit. Our Choir was the only one with microphones! All involved had a great time although the candy ran out at the one-third mark of the route. Thank you to all who worked on the float and golf carts, those who walked the route, our choir and Ricky Hall, and those who donated the candy and who prayed for our safety and success.
Volunteers accompanying the float need to be at the Titusville High School staging area by 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10. Parking is at Sand Point Park; there is no parking at the high school. To carpool, be at the church before 4:30 p.m.
Good Shepherd will be in the Titusville Christmas Parade (6 p.m. on Saturday, December 10) and we need wrapper candy to hand out to the spectators. Per Pastor: “We need the good stuff!” Please bring your donated candy to the Sanctuary.

There’s been discussion about starting a community garden at Good Shepherd, possibly as an Early Learning Center project with space for church members or as a full community effort with our neighbors. If you have experience with community gardens or gardening in general and are interested in managing or helping, please let Pastor Bruce know.
The next Kingdom Seeds meeting will be Thursday, June 16 at 6 p.m. Anyone interested in helping reach out to those around us using the strengths and resources of Good Shepherd is welcome to attend.
