GSPC News: Christmas, 2008

The church and preschool family was saddened this morning to hear that our dear friend and sister, Judy Plough, went home to be with the Lord. We rejoice that she is no longer suffering and that she has been reunited with Jesus and with her husband, but we will miss Judy greatly! A memorial service is planned for Saturday, December 27, with the time to be announced. I will update here as soon as that time is set.

In the midst of thinking about Judy and her family, we find ourselves between a glorious weekend past, focusing on forgiveness in worship and through the Christmas play - and a glorious Christmas Eve and Christmas to come, celebrating the birth and incarnation of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

The play was outstanding, not only for the message, content, and superlative acting, but also as a "lighthouse" event that drew over 130 guests! I thrill at all the ways the hopeful news of Jesus Christ is proclaimed and lived out through our creative arts and music ministries!

In Christ,


Hello all! We have been working behind the scenes to move our website content to this new blog format. If you are reading this, then you have followed to this new site. Please take a moment to look around via the left-side menus. You can return to this home page and the newest "GSPC News" by clicking on the main "Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church" header.

I'd welcome your feedback on this format. You can e-mail me at or leave a comment at the bottom of this entry.

Some of the features of a blog are the ability to "subscribe" to the content, so that new information is sent to YOU via e-mail or a blog reader like Google Reader. It is also easy to interact with readers via the comments. We have designed this site as a kind of hybrid website/blog, so that fixed information about our programs is available through the left-hand menus and updated information will be posted here on GSPC News. Other major ministries, like the preschool and creative arts (and sermons and the pastor's blog), will run their own parallel blogs, which you can subscribe to separately.

If you'd like further information on subscribing or on how to interact with this blog, please e-mail me.
