"Planted by Water: a Person, Church, Nation". Jeremiah 17:1-8. Pastor Clark. The focus of the message was encouraging to remember that we are ONE Church. Jeremiah 17:8 is GSPC's 2018 Theme Verse: 8 He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat come, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”. After the message, Pastor Ko invited families to pray for one another; then he invited students to come to be prayed over by the pastoral staff and Elders. It was wrapped up by the fathers of different groups making omelettes for everyone! It really felt like home. We are one Family.
Once a month, Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church has a United Family Dawn Service where everyone comes together to pray together and receive the prayer blessings of our Elders and Pastors! The service is done in English and some Korean. Praise is bilingual with praise team members from KM Adults/College, EM Adults/College/High School/Jr High/Elementary participants. And afterwards, we have breakfast together, and sometimes, a pick up game of basketball.
We were able to distribute food to those less fortunate. Many volunteers serving. We were able to pray for some folks too!
Teachers went through 3 Sessions. Two were taught by our curriculum (www.gcp.org) representative Pastor Dan Boulton and policy was reviewed with Pastor Clark. The pictures are from multiple groups summarizing and presenting GSPC Teacher Policy to one another. Lunch was also provided by our PTA president. Our teachers agree to the pledge.
