Check out these initiatives going on at GSLC:
This Holiday season, we will be sponsoring 29 children from Clark Creek Elementary School in Acworth. Starting on the 27th of November, there will be a tree with each child’s name on an angel and their basic needs for the holiday season. All you have to do is take one of the kids ornaments, buy them a gift, (wrap it, place the angel back on the gift, and place it in the box next to the tree. All gifts can be donated until December 11th (no later!).
If you are not sure about sponsoring a child for the holiday season, we will also be collecting monetary gifts for the school to help clear up late fees for school lunches and their after school program. There is a “life-size lunchbox” next to the holiday donations that you can place your donations in. If you are writing a check, please make sure you make it out to either “after school program” or “school lunches”. If you have any questions, you can contact the church office.
MUST Ministries is accepting donations at their facilities seven days a week. Good Shepherd has placed a barrel outside the front doors of the church. The top items that MUST is collecting are:
The recent Taste of Habitat raised over $42,000.
While this will not fund a full house build it will allow us to contribute to several builds in Cobb and Cherokee Counties.
For those who volunteered as chefs and attended or contributed to this worthy cause, the Board thanks you.
There will be build dates next year to be communicated in the Sheep Buzz and Bulletins. Please join in this very fulfilling home building. No construction experience needed.
ELECTRONICS RECYLING FUNDRAISER
Thank you to the Towne Lake community for dropping off your electronics for our event. We raised a little over $900 to hep our Caring for Creation efforts. Our next recycling event is planned for April. Set those old electronics aside and bring to Good Shepherd in April.
