Pastor Julio Peña's October 2021 Message
As we are still and I believe for quite a while in this pandemic of COVID – 19, I urge for the ones that are not vaccinated to do your proper research and talk to your doctor and pray; if you are able to do so take the vaccination.
We need to ignore the internet and social media because it can give you false information and from people with good intention. The fact is these people are still dying from this virus and most of them because they are not vaccinated.
I believe in science, but I balance it with a stronger belief in my faith. I’m vaccinated, but my wife and I did research and spoke with our doctors. We used the balance of science and faith in our God, by listening not to the noise, but to the Holy Spirit for guidance. May you be listening as you are seeking for answers.
Please, continue to wash your hands, stay away from people who are sick if possible and wear your masks when you are inside or in crowded outdoor places.
If you are seeking answers in your life and you have been hitting a wall, I invite you to check us out in our different ministry or to have one on one conversation with me. We might not have all the answers, but we have prayer warriors here at Good Shepherd that will listen to your struggles and pains. Trust me you will feel peace and comfort after you pray with our warriors or even in our worship services. Beginning October 10th we will have a Spanish worship service at 12:15pm and for you Latinx that prefer English service we have that with a little Spanish “spice” at 10:30am.
I will also encourage for you to join us for Adult Bible Study on Thursday’s night from 7pm – 9pm through zoom or in-person.
Also, if you have youth from 11-18 years that would love to be a part of the Spirit of Love youth group we meet on Wednesdays at 6:30pm -8:30pm in – person.
We will be having a blessing of the animals on October 17th at our lawn at 3pm
For any of these things that you have been invited to, you do not have to be a member to participate with us. Believe me when I say if you are truly seeking for a church family then you are welcome regardless of how society have made you feel. We are all children of the Living God.
