I know it’s short notice to procure the elements, but my friend, Rev. Dr. Richard Boatman, pastor of Oakwood UMC, will be sharing online communion tomorrow during a service starting at 6:30pm. You can find their livestream at http://oakwoodlife.org.
YouTube is like television over the internet. Good Shepherd Parish has its own YouTube channel where we share videos that anyone can watch.
If people like our channel, and have a Google account (Gmail, G-Suite, Android phone), they can subscribe to our channel, just like you would with a cable or satellite TV provider, except that our channel is free. People who subscribe to our channel get notified when there’s a new video. We’d love for you to subscribe. Click on the picture below and it will take you to our channel.
Each video on our channel is like an episode of a TV program. Most of our videos are part of the Services, or Sermon, program. If you like a particular video, you can like it and even share it with others. When watching a video you will probably see images underneath it like I’ve included below. Clicking the Thumbs Up means you like it. Clicking on SHARE will give you options to share the video with your friends and family.
Again, this only works if you have a Google account and are logged into it. Otherwise you’ll see a big button at the top right of the page. The more likes and subscribers we have, the more people will see our videos. Also, if we get up to 100 subscribers, our channel name could go from this: UCaNles4FGUYFjQOeyzb59GA to something like GSParish to more closely match our website. Wouldn’t that be so much nicer for people?
So, I’m asking you to do your part. If you have a Google account, or don’t mind getting one, subscribe to our channel and when you see a video that you connect with, like it and share it with others.
Kids Club at Agency is starting to wind down for the year. On Tuesday, February 26 we will hold a FREE meal following Kids Club from 5:30-6:30 pm. We will be serving Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, tomato soup or chicken noodle soup and desserts. This is a FREE meal – donations of food items or cash for the Wapello County Lord’s Cupboard will be accepted.
The final Kids Club will be Tuesday, March 3, 2020. We look forward to our Kids Club students coming to Vacation Bible School this summer in July and also coming back to Kids Club in the fall (October 2020- dates to be determined).
Several communities are ready for volunteers. See attached link for all the ways you can help and community contact info:
