Breakfast with Baby Jesus: Saturday December 9, 2017 at 10 am we will be hosting
Breakfast with Baby Jesus. You can sign up for the breakfast on the church website at gs4nj.org.
AV Tech Support: If you are interested in helping on Sunday mornings during either 9 or 10:30 service with the sound or screens, please fill out the connection card or email Marie in the church office: . We will train you. No experience necessary.
CONFIRMATION: The Confirmation Class is working on making blankets for Project Linus. We are in need of 60 x 60 inches blanket material to make these blankets. There will be a box on the stage to leave the material. If you cannot get material, monetary donations are welcome and appreciated as well. We need this by December 20th.
Confirmation Class is also in need of monetary donations to help pay for the cost of confirmation, the materials, and retreat. If anyone would like to donate, you can put in the offering plate and clearly mark the envelope CONFIRMATION.
Life Line Screening: A leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, is pleased to offer a preventive health event at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on 12/13/2017. Five screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems related to: blocked arteries which is a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs which is a strong predictor of heart disease; atrial fibrillation or irregular heart beat which is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening, for men and women, used to assess the risk of osteoporosis. Register for a Wellness Package which includes 4 vascular tests and osteoporosis screening from $149 ($139 with our member discount). All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. There are three ways to register for this event and to receive a $10 discount off any package priced above $129, please call toll-free 1-888-653-6441 or visit: http://lifelinescreening.com/communitycircle or text the word circle to 797979
Numana Meal Packing Event 2018: We will be hosting our meal packing event on Saturday, June 2, 1028. We packed 80,000 meals last year, but this year we hope to double that number and pack 160,000 meals. Double the meals will help double the children.
This means we will need to raise $48,000 to make that happen. That is a big number, but we can break that number down. We will pack 740 boxes that contain 216 meals each. Each box is $65. We need just 740 donations of $65. Another way of looking at it is that each meal costs 30¢. For every .30¢ that is donated, we can provide one more meal. It happens just a little bit at a time.
Donations can be made online by going to gs4nj.org/mealpacking. This link will take you to the donation page for our meal packing event on Numana’s website. If you would like to send a check, it can be made out to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, with Numana in the memo line.
If you would like to be a part of the planning team, please email in the church office.
