Update from SOTG Council President

Your church remains active serving members and the community. Even though public gatherings at Shepherd of the Glades are suspended temporarily, the office is open; Pastor and staff remain available during business hours; volunteers are busy and special projects are underway. On behalf of you, our members we continue to do the Lords work every day.

What we want you to do:

1) Stay connected – use our website to review current events and tune in to Pastor Jeff’s video taped church services. www.sotgweb.org If you need assistance in any way to make this work on your computer, please contact the office. We are here to help you! So that you receive our emails without it going into your spam folder, please enter our email address (sotg1@embarqmail.com) into your contact list.

2) Please continue with your weekly giving and financial support of the Church. Drop your offerings at the office or via mail, or direct deposit from your bank. The weekly offerings have dropped significantly, and we would appreicate it if you continue to financially support the Church as you are able. If you would like suggestions on how to give electronically, please contact the office or Pastor Jeff directly. (239) -775-0696.

We are praying for you and appreciate your ongoing support.
