Special Events at Good Shepherd
Ground Breaking for the Early Childhood Center
Sunday, September 7th, at 11:45 a.m.
O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your
strength to this generation, Your power to everyone
who is to come. Psalm 71.18
Everyone is welcome to a special ground breaking service following the late service on September 7th. We will walk immediately after the service to the future construction area behind the school. The service will last about 20 minutes and will include special singing by our Preschool children. We are very thankful to all who contributed in many ways toward this project, and we pray for God’s blessings as construction begins.
The current preschool building at Chapel Court has served us well for 27 years. However high maintenance costs, space limitations, as well as distance from our main campus led us to consider a new building. In 2013, after several years of planning and preparation by our School Board and Master Plan Committee, Good Shepherd began a stewardship campaign to raise funds for a future Early Childhood Center. So far we have received $577,454 in pledges and have received $304,885 in gifts and pledges. Our pledge drive will continue for two more years. You are still welcome to submit a pledge for this project if you haven’t done so. Pledge cards and special envelopes are available in the Narthex.
The Early Childhood Center will enable us to offer a quality, Christ-centered education for three and four year-olds and kindergarteners. Connected to the main campus, children and parents will be able to interact with the pastors, teachers, children and members of Good Shepherd. The new location will especially offer a secure place for our youngest children, keep them close to older brothers and sisters, and give them an opportunity for a smooth transition to elementary school. Thanks be to God and to everyone who has made this possible!
