Join us for Lenten Worship Wednesdays at 7 pm.  This year we are exploring “Words That Matter,” the words that are the building blocks of our faith, such as love and grace. The liturgy will be the beloved “Holden Evening Prayer.”

Before the worship service each Wednesday, Soup Supper is served from 5:45-6:30pm. All proceeds from the soup suppers will be used to help pay the cost of moving into the new building in April.

Team BGTF, Youth Gathering youth and chaperones will be selling tickets for the “Winter-Feast” formal plated dinner beginning in January. Watch for them in the narthex between services.

A fun evening is planned for you!

Babysitting will be provided (please sign up ahead –they will be fed pizza for dinner).

Keenagers is a group of retirees who meet monthly for lunch and a short presentation. Most presentations pertain to needs and information you may find useful as you adjust into retirement. (Cost:$8.00 per person). All retirees are welcome!

We say goodbye to our original sanctuary and church facility in March! Join us on March 11 during the Sunday Education Hour as we gather to thank God for the ministry and life that happened in the original A-Frame and building.

To prepare for and memorialize this space, we’d like to gather your memories and pictures of your time in this building and collect them into a book about the beginnings and ministry of Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd.

To participate in this, please put your memories either in written or email form and turn them in to Pastor Kay. If you have photos to share, you can send an email of them or bring them by the church for Siri to scan a copy. We’d love to have your baptismal, wedding, or other event photos taken in the previous worship space. They will become a permanent part of our congregation’s written history. Make sure you put March 11 on your calendar for this event!
