Sunday, February 25th is the final day to order Easter Memorial Lilies. There are extra order forms available on the table in the Narthex. Please fill out your form, attach a check, and turn it into the church office. Thank you!

 

Call Update: Pastor Minton of Trinity, Slayton, who is also serving the vacancy to St. James in Holland, has accepted the call to Trinity Lutheran Church in Robbinsdale, MN.  Pastor Minton will serve through Slayton through Easter Sunday.  We give thanks to God for him, his family, and pray for Trinity as they enter a vacancy.

Do you want more control over your financial future? Do you wish you had tools to help you guide your long-term financial decisions? If so, consider enrolling in Financial Peace University. Good Shepherd is planning to offer this course free of charge to parishioners and community members. The program, developed and led by famed financial advisor Dave Ramsey, will feature nine video sessions, self-directed planning materials and supplementary print resources. You will also work with a companion commentary which provides an analysis of FPU's lessons from a LCMS perspective. If you would like to be part of this course, please see Pastor Stefanic or David Sturrock, or send an e-mail to church secretary Annie Sanderson at office@gslcmarshall.org. There will be no charge for this course. Classes will be held at GSLC one night per week.

 

We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to help with painting and installing new flooring in the main floor bathrooms. Please contact Denny Brockberg with questions or to volunteer. Thank you!
