Sunday School begins TODAY: If you have not already done so, we NEED a registration form for each child. There are some on the sign in table. This year we will introduce a new curriculum and have a calendar of lessons and “Theme of the Day”. These are attached to the registration forms, be sure to take a copy. A suggested donation for each family is $25.00. This will help offset the cost of materials needed for each student. If you are interested in volunteering to help with Sunday School, please let someone at the registration table know, or email Marie in the church office at email@example.com. There will be a Sunday School Volunteer meeting following the 10:30 service.

This orientation is for any parents who are interested in having their child baptized at Good Shepherd. The orientation will last approximately one hour. It will be led by Pastor Phil. We will look at what we as Lutherans believe and teach about baptism. We will also go through the commitments which parents make before the Lord on the day their child’s baptism. If parents are not members of Good Shepherd, they should make arrangements to attend the New Member Orientation prior to the Baptism Orientation.

Simple, powerful and applicable insights show you how to be on mission and recognize where Jesus is already at work in your neighborhoods, workplaces and schools. You will feel both relief and hope. You may even hear yourself say, “I can do this ” as you start responding to the everyday opportunities Jesus is placing in your path.
