WE ARE MOVING TO FAITH HAVEN CHAPEL SEPTEMBER 14, 2014
We Are A New Way Of Being Church!
Jesus Our Shepherd is an inclusive Eucharist faith community. We are moving from Nenno to The Faith Haven Chapel, 7490 County WW, two miles north of Highway 33, one mile south of Highway D, in the township of West Bend.
Jesus Our Shepherd is an independent community celebrating Eucharist in this contemporary, handicap-accessible rural chapel every Sunday morning at 9:30. We live the Gospel mandate of love as best we can. We invite everyone to Communion no matter ones life circumstances.
We warmly welcome newcomers, young families and children. Using what resources we have, we reach out in solidarity to people in need.
Ordained women and men serve our community without financial compensation. We have no weekly envelopes, no monthly or annual dues.
We make community decisions together as a people baptized in Jesus and gifted by the Spirit. Once a month we have a community meeting to discuss and decide upon issues of importance. We have no bishop, no chancery officials, no code of Canon Law, no diocesan mandates governing us. This gives us a responsibility and freedom few churches enjoy.
We make no demands regarding specific doctrines one must believe. Jesus' Gospel is focused on how we should behave, and not overly concerned with subtleties of theology and legality.
We celebrate an informal fellowship after each Sunday Liturgy to which all are invited. Coffee, bakery, other foods and good conversation abound!
