THE WEEK OF MARCH 18 - 24
Easter Egg Hunt-The Annual Easter Egg Hunt is just around the corner. Those interested in filling eggs with candy, Bible verses or small trinkets, please bring the eggs to church no later than Easter Sunday morning at 7am. We also have eggs to fill. Please see Sheila Tabaka for empty eggs. The Easter Egg Hunt will begin around 9:15am, dependent on the Youth Easter Breakfast. Thank you.
LWML will be hosting the Zone Spring Rally on April 14th and we would love to include all of our congregation - male and female! You are welcome to come hear Rev. Nabil Nour as he asks the question "Will the REAL Son of Abraham please stand up?" Rev. Nour is an Israeli born Lutheran pastor from SD and we are excited to have him speak at the rally. As the hosts of this rally, we are asking for any volunteers who would be willing to furnish a salad, bake cupcakes or coffee cake, donate bottled water, or help out during the rally. If you are interested, please talk to Carolyn Bayerkohler or sign up on the sheet located on the fellowship hall bulletin board. Thank you!
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 email to the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be no charge for this course. Classes will be held at GSLC one night per week.
The new GSLC Library is taking donations for LCMS based, up-to-date books for young adults through senior citizens (no children's books please). If you have items you would like to donate, please contact a member of the Board of Christian Education.
Pastor Stefanic will be making every member home visits throughout the coming year. Please contact him for a day and time that works for you.
