Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd is a vibrant community of faith that rejoices in the Grace of God, teaches the message of Jesus Christ, and ministers faithfully to all people.
On May 22 we will recognize and congratulate our high school and college graduates. If you or a family member are graduating, please call or email the church office to let us know. A picture of the graduate would also be appreciated.
The Preschool will not have classes April 27-29 as there will be parent-teacher conferences.
Pastor Steve is leading a new book group for adults during the Sunday school hour. *Listening for God* is a collection of short stories from authors like Flannery O’Conner and Garrison Keillor. We will read one short story each week and have class time for discussion. While not all the stories are theological, all have implications for the life of faith. Everyone is invited to be a part of the discussion group on Sundays in the Fireside Room at 10:15am. Participants order their own books. Listening for God (Volume 1), by Paula J. Carlson and Peter S. Hawkins, Published by Augsburg Fortress.
On Mothers Day the childrens choirs will bring back their anthem *I Love My Mom* and we will bless our quilts before sending them off with Lutheran World Relief later that week.
Registration for Preschool classes for the 2016-17 year continues. Contact Lisa Brandt or the church office for information.
The Sunday School department will end their year with celebrations on Sunday, May 15. Ask your teacher for details.
