Easter Breakfast

Sunday, April 5, 2015 - 8:30am - 11:00am

The high school and middle school youth of Good Shepherd will be hosting an Easter breakfast as a fundraiser for this summer's Youth Gathering trip and other activities.  Breakfast will be served from 8:30-11:00am so that no matter which church service you attend can come and enjoy a wonderful meal!  A freewill offering will be taken and food donations requested to help offset the cost of the meal.  Hop on down to the Fellowship Hall on Easter Sunday, April 5th!

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.
