I notice we have been neglectful in updating the website except for media. With that in mind I am going to step in and try to fill that void and put pen to paper if you will. I know we have been communicating amongst Shepherd leaders and various groups, but our updating the website has not been very good. I will try to step in and assist Skip, Mary and others in this endeavor today.
Since Thanksgiving it has been quite busy, but there has been some awesome things that have gone on within the fellowship, which I think we need to rejoice in. Also, our endeavors at present and our upcoming yearly Shepherds and Saints meeting to discuss as well.
In December we had two awesome gathering meetings. One in North Platte and the other in Omaha. Reverend James Harris from Kansas City preached in our North Platte meeting on " Faith and Fiction ", it was extremely effective. We had a variety of folks give their life to Christ and seek the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It was a blessed time in the Lord. In Omaha I preached on " Believing When Everything Says Otherwise ". God touched His Word and the worship in such a pronounced way in that meeting. We saw various folks respond to God, and ask for prayer in their current struggles and we baptized 4 individuals as they surrendered their live's to God. It was a profoundly awesome time in the presence of God.
Our study groups for adults have been studying from the book of Genesis in many groups, and continue in our Authentic Christian Men and Woman series in others. Our foundational classes continue as well, as the Foundations for Life, Shepherd Series ( study on our relationship with God ) and Covenant Worldview From the Scriptures are always quarterly revolving.
We will have our Shepherd and Saints meeting in February. We will post that date and where it will be held. You can connect via video or the Prayerline conference number if you can't attend. We are so spread out that I realize 75% can't been in the meeting. That is okay, and we are working to as usual make the logistics work so you can participate or listen in. Amen.
Please keep the ministry in prayer, as we face the new year with questions and will have changes forthcoming. God bless everyone. I will work with the Sherpherd leaders to try to be more interactive with the website. Sorry for its neglect.
In His Grace,
