Wednesday Evening Prayer Service and Small Groups

Each Wednesday, Good Shepherd has a regular evening prayer service.  We play and sing praise songs, pray from the Anglican liturgy, give intercessions and thanksgivings, and pray for healing.  In order that people may eat and get home from work, we begin the service at 6:30pm at His Dream Center (205 E Baltic St, Nags Head).  It will run no longer than 45 minutes.

On the first and third Wednesdays of the month, Servant Council will convene at 7:15pm.  On those evenings, the Evening Prayer Service will serve as a spiritual centering before engaging in the business of the church.

On the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, the women and men will separate to different places in the building and meet in small groups at 7:15pm.  These groups should include anyone who wants to be a part of them, so members of Good Shepherd should invite everyone they can to these small groups.  The first meeting of these groups will be on September 12th, and on that night it will be decided, by each group, the shape of future meetings: bible studies, activities, dinner together, etc.

If a month has a fifth Wednesday, both groups will assemble together.  On this night we can plan to watch movies together or engage in other activities as a Christian community on the Outer Banks.

We hope you will all want to be part of this big step in the life of Good Shepherd.
