Good Shepherd United Methodist Church Focuses on Community


September 12, 2018

We have been a vital church in the Fountain Valley for nearly 60 years and we want to continue to learn and grow to know how to better serve our community.

On Sunday Sept.16, Good Shepherd United Methodist Church will begin a new church-wide study designed to help our congregation focus outward to reach new people in the Security-Widefield and Fountain neighborhoods and how to improve our community widening skills. The resource is the tried and true study written by Bishop Robert Schnase entitled Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations.

The books are now available at the Welcome Desk. A donation of $14 for each book is appreciated. We all can learn something new about serving our community and opening our doors to those who need and want to be a part of our congregation.

The Insights Adult Sunday class also invites everyone to join them for discussions on the study beginning at 11 a.m. Sept. 16 in the conference room. Schnase’s examinations offer an innovative practical look at the transformative practices of Radical Hospitality, Passionate Worship, Intentional Faith Development, Risk-Taking Mission and Service, and Extravagant Generosity.

We believe this is the time to remain faithful to our commitment to transform the world as we reach out with genuine hospitality to people wherever they are. Our doors are open and we welcome all to worship with us at 9:30 a.m. Sundays at 1201 Leta Drive in Security. If you can’t make it to services, follow us on Facebook at @GSUMCCOS.
