Donate to Good Shepherd Relay for Life Team

We will be having a Good Shepherd United Methodist Church Relay for Life Team again this year. The Charles County Relay for Life will be Saturday June 9, 2018 at the Charles County Fair Grounds, 8440 Fairgrounds Rd., LaPlata Md. from 12 noon to midnight. If you want to join our Good Shepherd Relay for Life Team, please go to the Charles County Relay for Life website and join our team to join. We are dedicating this year's team in support of Nancy Blizzard and to any other church or family who have fought cancer this past year. You do not have to attend the Relay event on June 9th to be a member of our team. If you would like to make a donation to our team, you can make a check out to the American Cancer Society. If you have any questions, please contact or see Nancy Bennett, 301-643-1160, Linda Ford at 301-645-6408 or Nancy Blizzard at 301-934-5436.

BBQ and Praise Night

Do you like to cook or eat barbeque? Do you like to sing praise songs? Now you can do both on the same night. On Saturday night, June 16 there will be a Barbeque and Praise night. Cook your best barbeque (pork, beef, chicken or veggie) and bring it to the Barbeque Cook-off (time to be announced). Following the cook-off there will be an evening of praise featuring the Good Shepherd Praise team. Good food and good worship-what could be better than that? Hope to see everyone there.

Prayer Weavers

The Prayer Weavers knit and crochet prayer shawls, blessing blankets, lap robes, pocket prayer squares, hats for the narthex Christmas tree and other items. We hope that the recipients of our creations will feel God's arms wrapped around them as they receive and use our "prayer weavings." The Prayer Weavers meet in the chapel from noon until two on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. If you are inter-ested in participating, join us. If our meeting times don't fit your schedule, be a prayer weaver "in absentia." Knit or crochet at home, waiting at an appointment, riding as a passenger in the car...Use your own patterns or get patterns from Nancy Bennett, Dottie Dipoli, Amy Peregoy, Nancy Blizzard, Pinterest or Ravelry, or another one of our group. Minimum sizes for prayer shawls: 72" x 16", Blessing blankets: 24" x 22", Lap robes: 50" x 50" We recommend using yarn that is machine washable and dryable.

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir would like to welcome any new singers. Practice is Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9 PM. Although the ability to read music is a benefit, it is not necessary. Come and sing God's praises! Please talk to Brian Turnmire for more information.

United Methodist Men

On the second Saturday of every month, the men share a breakfast at 8:00AM in the Fellowship Hall. The group often takes on service projects and holds programs of various sorts throughout the year.
Next Meeting: June 9, 2018.
