Oktoberfest celebration

Saturday, October 4, 2014 - 5:00pm - 8:00pm

Good Shepherd's annual Oktoberfest will take place on Saturday, October 4. Our Oktoberfest is more family friendly and a lot less rowdy than the big one in Munich. We'll have traditional Oktoberfest food -- bratwurst, German potato salad and sauerkraut -- as well as pork roast and hot dogs. There is a nominal cost ($10 for adults, $5 for kids). Beverages will be available for purchase. You can work off some of those calories when Paul Collins leads us in folk dancing. So get out your lederhosen or dirndls or other party clothes, bring your friends and enjoy the gemΓΌtlichkeit. 

Flock O'Readers

We meet in the kitchen beginning at 7:30pm.

We are always looking for ideas of books to read, and we cover wide ranges of subjects.  You don't have to attend all of the dates. If you like to read, come join us! 

Meal Shepherds

Imagine that you are recovering from surgery or dealing with a sick loved one. Now imagine that a friend shows up with a basket filled with a warm dinner for your family. That is what the Meal Shepherds do. From time to time there are several families that need meals, but each Meal Shepherd is responsible for one or a few meals. Call the church office if you would like to be on the list of people who make meals.

Movie Night

What can be better than dinner and a movie? How about joining friends for a potluck meal and sharing your thoughts afterwards. On the 3rd Satuday at 5:30pm (or other Saturdays when holidays interfere) gather in the church basement for Movie Night. No reservations are needed, just bring some food to share - home made or store bought are both great. The idea is to have an easy night of entertainment. For more information see John Hayes.

Young Adults in Ministry

We collected 18 pounds of food for the OPRF Food Pantry in November. The next meeting is in January.

Young Adults in Ministry is a group of 20 and 30 year olds who meet monthly. The focus is building connections, sharing food, and having fun.There are opportunities for service projects and mentoring high school youth. Y.A.M.S. have their own facebook page. For an invitation to the facebook group contact Pastor Kathy.
