Sunday Epiphany Sermon Series Ends Soon – “God, in Man, Made Manifest: An Epiphany Series”

Sermon Series: God In ManOur sermon series for the season of Epiphany looks at what the Gospel readings reveal about the Savior Jesus, who is Christ the Lord and King.

Starting with the visitation of the Magi and ending with the Transfiguration of Jesus, we’ll explore the different ways Jesus shows He is truly God, in Man, Made Manifest.

February 4          “Christus Consolator”— Mark 1:29–39

February 11        “A Glimpse of Great Glory” — Mark 9:2–9


Ash Wednesday and Sunday Lenten Season Sermon Series - "Climbing the Mountains of Life"

Life is a series of ups and downs. Mountains of Life imageHighs and lows. Mountain peaks and deep valleys below. No one especially cares for being in the down, low, deep valleys. Most of us would rather be at the top of the life’s mountains. How do you meet the challenging mountains of life successfully? How do you climb them and master their rugged slopes and sheer escarpments? We’ll take a look at a variety of mountains this Lent, focusing on developing the right spirit or attitude to climb these mountains. Here’s the good news–Jesus shows us the right attitude, and he instills this same spirit in us too. Let’s get climbing!!

 February 14 (Ash Wednesday)   The Spirit of Calvary’s Climb, Mark 6:1-6, 16-21
 February 18  The Mount of Temptation, Mark 1:12-15
 February 25    The Mount of Suffering, Mark 8:31-38
 March 3   The Mount of Loyalty, John 2:13-22
 March 10   The Mount of Sacrifice, John 3:14-21
 March 17  The Mount of Triumph, John 12:20-33

 

Lent Wednesday Worship and Holy Week Series: "Jesus – King of Kings"

Jesus King of Kings imageMany hymns and songs reference Jesus Christ as King of kings. It’s a biblical theme, to be sure, lifting up this Lord of ours as ultimately superior and having incomparably greater and eternal authority than any of the mightiest rulers who’ve ever governed nations throughout history. This year’s Lenten worship will take a closer look at some of those earthly kings in the Old Testament (and one in the New), the kings over whom the King of kings reigns supreme. In other words, if Jesus is the King of kings, the King who reigns over kings, to what or whom is this King of kings compared? During these next weeks, God willing, we’ll bring to the surface King Saul, King Solomon, King Ahab, and King Zedekiah–you won’t want to miss those–and King Herod, the only king whose life intersects the Christ, the King. All of this provides prelude and builds toward Holy Week, when we will indeed lift high the King of kings.

February 21 Saul: The King Who Fell from Grace, 1 Samuel 15:10-12a, 17-23
 February 28 The King Who Had Everything, 1 Kings 3:1-15
 March 6 The King Whose Repentance Was Too Little, Too Late, 1 Kings 16:29-33; 21:20-29
 March 13  Zedekiah: The King Who Turned Out the Lights, 2 Kings 24:18-25:7
 March 20 Herod: The King Who Couldn't Kill Jesus, Matthew 2:13-20
 March 24 (Palm Sunday) King of Kings: A Humble Coronation, Luke 19:28-42
 March 28 (Maundy Thursday) King of Kings: Condemned to Die, John 18:28-19:16
 March 29 (Good Friday) King of Kings: Life through Death, John 19:17-22
 March 31 (Easter Sunday) King of Kings and Lord of Lords, 1 Timothy 6:12-16

 

Sunday Bible Study

10:45 AM — Psalms: Prayers and Praise – Part 2

Psalms StudyWhen we study the psalms, we are studying more than religious poetry. The psalms express far more than personal or congregational prayers. They proclaim Jesus Christ—His mission and passion, His resurrection and return.
Each session of this study focuses on one psalm as an example of other psalm “types” (wisdom psalms, psalms of ascent, penitential psalms, praise psalms, laments, historical psalms, and royal psalms). The study starts with psalms that are easier to understand and progresses to investigate some of the most difficult passages in the Bible.

Part 2

Psalm 118: Give Thanks to the Lord!

Psalm 44: God’s People Cry Out

Psalm 109: Righteous Retribution

Psalm 136: His Love Endures Forever

Psalm 72: Long Live the King

Led by Pastor Keith

Flu Season is Here!
The symptoms of flu, unlike a cold, come on quickly and are intense and may result in severe health problems such as pneumonia, bacterial infections, and hospitalizations. It is responsible for 12,000- 56,000 deaths annually.
Who should get a flu shot?Flu
-First and foremost everyone!
-Adults and children who have chronic illnesses, such as asthma, heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease and diabetes
-Persons who are immunocompromised
-Woman who are or will be pregnant during the flu season
-Children and adolescents (age 6 months through 18 years)
-Residents of nursing homes and other long-term facilities
-Persons who are extremely obese (body mass index 40 or greater for adults)
-Persons who live or care for someone who has an increased risk for flu-related complications.
How to prevent or avoid the flu?
-The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to be vaccinated each year
-Avoid big crowds
-Good health habits: covering your cough, your sneeze and washing your hands often and use hand sanitizer when out and about. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
What if I have symptoms?
-If you have the flu, you are contagious from 1 day prior to symptoms thru the next 5 - 7 days or until symptoms fade
-Most people who have the flu do not need to see a doctor and can follow below to get well:
-Make rest a top priority and take naps
-Go to bed; do not skip on sleep. This weakens your immune system.
-Drink plenty of fluids to help thin mucus and break up congestion.
-Skip caffeinated sodas, coffee, and alcohol that can dry you out.
-Sip hot beverages: decaffeinated tea, or warm broth.
-Take a hot shower to moisten scratchy throats, loosen congestion and relax aching muscles.
-Take an over-the-counter remedy as directed to treat fevers and cough (children and teens should never take aspirin because of the risk of Reye’s syndrome, a rare but potentially fatal condition.)
-Do not re-enter society until fever has been gone for 24 hours
Who Needs to see a doctor?
-Those individuals at high risk of flu-related complications are those most often with a chronic disease as noted above and/or have a weakened immune system.
-If your symptoms are severe, contact your physician and they may prescribe an antiviral to reduce the severity and length of your symptoms.

 

Join Adam for a Musical Meditation

Morning MeditationAdam Phillips, GSLC's Music Director, provides meditative instrumental and vocal music every Wednesday morning at 10:00 am.

Please join Adam (or an occasional guest artist) in our sanctuary as they explore a variety of hymns and other musical prayers performed on a variety of instruments.

The meditation is livestreamed on GSLC's Video Page and available afterwards as a video recording until the next live event. Older meditation videos are archived.

The direct link to the Livestreamed / Latest Meditation is https://vimeo.com/event/1154783 . The Meditation Archive Showcase to view prior Meditations is at https://vimeo.com/showcase/7841964.

 

Are You a Photographer? We Need Your Help!
 
We are looking for that special person that is interested in photography and wants to expand their skills by operating the video cameras and video switcher during our services and other events. Could that be you?
 
We have a core group of five GSLC members that enter the weekly worship service text, organize the sermon slides, set up the video feed, do the live camera switching for the services and meditations, record the services, etc. every week.

video crew

We are looking for another camera / video switcher operator to provide relief and someone to do this when we are not able to do it.

We - and our livestream viewers - need your help so we can continue livestreaming and recording all of these services and events. Ideally, you would be able to assist with the Sunday service and/or Wednesday meditation livestreaming once a month (to stay in practice), step in if other team members are not available, and perhaps do some of the Lent or Advent evening service livestreaming.

The tasks are precise but not difficult. There's no experience needed - we will train you!

If you are interested finding out more, please contact Dan Barnett (805 729-5993) and/or Fred Barbaria (805 680-0288) for more information. Or, just come by and see us in the AV area (up in the back corner) after the Sunday service.

Good Shepherd in the World

Background: Recently Pastor Paul and Nelson FamilyGenevieve (Gena) Nelson received and accepted the call to serve on behalf of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Indonesia, based in Medan.

Pastor Nelson and his family served Emanuel Lutheran Church, Santa Barbara for 10 ½ years. In this new role, Pastor Paul works closely with the Indonesian Christian Lutheran Church and helps train and mentor local pastors and lay leaders.

The Need: Pastor Nelson and family need fellow believers to partner with them in this new role.How can we partner with them?

First, PRAY. Pray for Paul and Gena as they serve in Indonesia. Pray also for each member of the family as they transition to a new location and culture. Ask God to give them patience and confidence as they learn Bahasa Indonesia, the official language of the country. Pray also that they would be able to establish good relationships with the people around them in their new home. Let us give thanks that the Nelson family is serving in this part of the world.

Second, ENCOURAGEMENT. Moving is challenging no matter where you go. Moving to a different country with a different language, different customs, different climate, is exponentially challenging! Birthdays and anniversaries still come around every year. A card or a note of support and encouragement is a meaningful gift that bridges the miles and changes.

Third, MONEY. Yes, money. Pastor Nelson is required to raise his own financial support for his family. That’s how he gets “paid.”

The Opportunity: This is our opportunity to partner with Pastor and Gena Nelson and support them in their work in Indonesia. Being a partner with Pastor Paul and Gena is one of the ways we can follow our mandate of listening to the voice of our Good Shepherd Jesus and fulfill our mission of “Excite the believers and share the Gospel.” Partnering with Pastor Nelson will be a blessing for us.

The Challenge: Will we partner with the Nelsons? Are we up for it? Can we commit to meeting the needs? I hope so! I pray so! Please prayerfully consider how you might meet a need for Pastor Paul and Gena Nelson and family. I know that our Good Shepherd, the Lord Jesus, can lead usinto a meaningful partnership that will bless Pastor Nelson and his family and the church and people of Indonesia.

Please check out the video of Pastor Paul Nelson as he explains his new role as Theological Educator in Indonesia. The video is available on GSLC's web site here

In this busy world God wants us to live in a place of rest. In this session we will paint and journal what it is for us personally to live in rest. To Quiet our souls. 
 
Using Acrylic paints you will be guided by Lizbeth to lay down color while listening to what the Holy Spirit has to say. We do not paint realistic paintings but abstract shape and lines to get in touch with the Holy Spirit. This is a time of hearing, sensing and seeing in your heart what God is saying to you. No wrong way to do this. Prayer for you to hear, see or feel what God is saying will come. God always shows up.
 
We are learning to hear from God in a way that is quiet and peaceful through laying down of color. Enter into His Rest. Be at peace. It is also a way of getting confirmation to something that you may be blocked to as well. God is good and is always wanting us to connect with Him.
 
To Sign up for this session or if you have any questions,  text Lizzy Savage at 805.453.0571. One must sign up to save your space. A limit of ten people per session.

GSLC's On Line Giving Options - Credit Card? eCheck?

coin purseGood Shepherd has offered electronic donation capabilities (through Vanco) for a while. You now have the ability to sign up directly through Good Shepherd's web site to donate on line (through Vanco) once or on a recurring basis.

You can also make a special one-time donation (through Square) on Good Shepherd's website.

For either donation type go to https://gslcms.org/giving and then click on the appropriate donation button. You can specify whether you are donating to the GSLC budget or the Food Distribution program. If you prefer, you can also mail us your offering or drop it off at the church office.

 

IRA Distributions to Charity Are a Permanent Part of Tax Code!!

Congress made permanent qualified charitable distributions from individuals. This law permits annual direct transfers to a qualified charity totaling up to $100,000 of tax-deferred IRA savings. Funds distributed to the owner first and then donated do not qualify.

This includes the mandatory distributions (MRD) for IRA owners 72 years of age and over.

This is a benefit to the donor as income taxes on social security benefits can decrease as the distribution is not reported as income for the donor. If the donor no longer itemizes their deductions this is a way to get the benefit of the donation as the IRA distribution is not included in income and thus not subject to income taxes.

To make a contribution you must contact your IRA trustee to make a transfer directly to the charity. Should you wish to make a donation to the church have the checks made payable to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and have the check mailed to us directly. Be sure that the check includes your name on the memo line.

We will issue a letter of acknowledgement that we have received your donation. Please call David at 805 967-1416 x103 in the accounting office with any questions.
