I NEED YOUR HELP !

I'm just asking. I've asked before. I will ask again. :) We need folks on Sunday mornings to make the switch to Saturday evening 5 or 6:30.... And we need folks on the main campus to come over and help us at the Westside campus. Until we get a new building built we need to provide more room on Sunday morning as well as free up some parking spaces.

Why do we need you to do that?

Because most visitors show up on Sunday morning, and we want to help them get in and find a place to sit. I know that most of you are VERY comfortable attending the service you attend, but I would like to ask you to make the switch to help those who are unchurched and unsaved. I want to express to EVERYONE my APPRECIATION for watching the sermon on video each week. Did you know that we have 16 venues each weekend? Eight of the 16 venues are on video and close to 2000 people are attending a video venue. Most of you still realize that the main thing is that we come to church to worship God and it really doesn't matter if the message is on video or live because the word of God does NOT come back void. Shepherd is KNOWN for it's flexibility and willingness to sacrifice in order for the lost to be saved. Thank you and please know it's an honor to be your Pastor.

You've been asking this same question for years and I'm embarrassed to say that I've fallen back to attending Sunday mornings after many years of attending on Saturday nights. My husband and I will talk about this this week and we will make the change beginning next week. I'm sorry you must keep making the same request.

My family and I have been attending Saturday 5 PM services for years and love it. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I remember Pastor Dudley's dad asked us one Saturday what we were doing there, "Don't you people have anything better to do?"
He was joshing us of course.
What a great way to spend a Saturday night! We have time to really prepare ourselves for worship and not have to combine it with trying to get ready just to start the day.

It is really important that we make it as easy as possible for visitors to come and meet with our amazing church!
