The congregation of the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church invite you to our church 9:15 am Sunday Bible Study, 10:30 am Sunday worship service and Wednesday 11:00 am for Bible Study!

Dear Friends in Christ,

The Epiphany season is upon us now and it reminds us of the divinity of Jesus, by His
many miracles, called '*signs" in the gospel of John. Watch the remaining Sundays in
Epiphany in the Gospel readings.

One of the outcomes of His miractes was to give HOPE to people. V/hat is hope? ln the
Bible, HOPE is the confident expectation of what God has promised. lt's strength is in
His faithfulness. Be in your Bible a lot. Be in a group study. Spend less time reflecting
on the past but more time on what is to come. Help others do the same. Some of your
friends have littte or no hope. "He has given us new birth into a living hope through the
resurrection of the dead- (See I Peter 1:3)

ln this hope we are saved.

Here is another matter of your hope in God. This is what God doesn't do: He
remembers your sins no more. He holds no revenge or ill feelings towards you. Your
sins are not in the memory of God. Your sins are never discussed within heaven" God
remains today the One who knows you best and still loves you the most.

And I love you too! Thank you for your generous Christmas gift. Thank you for faithful
stewardship this past year: offerings matched the expenses in 2A19. Thank you for
your faithfulness also in increased pledges for 2A2A. YOU pledged 2A% more than last
year, going from $ 32,000 to $38,000. Thank YOU!

Finally, we will soon be into the Lenten season. Ash Wednesday service will be Feb. 26
at 11 am. A soup and sandwich lunch will follow.

ln Christ,
Yours in Christ,
Reverend Ron Mueller

God's call to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is in Jeremiah 29:7
"Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."
That's why Good Shepherd is working to GROW!
Going to our neighbors near and far
Reaching out to listen, learn and love
Opening our hearts and hands in Jesus' name
Welcoming them to life together in Christ's kingdom

The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church has many doors through which people share in serving God and others. Whether you visit in person or via the internet, we hope you discover something here to encourage you in your spiritual journey.

The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is a church with a passion for sharing the love of Jesus Christ not only in our community but also around the world.

Everything Lutherans believe comes from the Bible, God's message of love and hope for all people.  The Bible is the written Word of God, handed down to us in order to point us to the truth that we are saved from our sin and eternal death by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible is completely reliable and without error.  We learn everything we need to know about God's love from it.

We invite you to visit and join us for a wonderful time of fellowship and praising the Lord in a multitude of opportunities offered by our church.

 

As you enter our doors you will be welcomed by a greeter who will give you a bulletin for the day which will list the hymns, and information that you might need, and then they will direct you to the guest register, where we would appreciate it if you would give us your name and address so we can send you a welcome card. As you go into the sanctuary, please sit anywhere you might feel comfortable, and prepare to worship. Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is a community of faith, rooted in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our mission is to nurture each person in mind, body and spirit through worship, education and service.

  Holy Communion: Our Lord shares with us His precious body and blood in the Sacrament of the Holy Communion. We invite those who are baptized Christians who are able to examine themselves on the basis of these three points of Christian faith:

 I believe that Jesus is my only Lord and Savior from sin.

 I believe that the true body and blood of Christ is present in the sacrament.

I resolve, with the Holy Spirit's help, to live for my Lord and witness through my actions that He is my Savior.


 

 

 


My son, pay attention to what I say;
    turn your ear to my words.
Do not let them out of your sight,
    keep them within your heart;
for they are life to those who find them
    and health to one’s whole body.
Above all else, guard your heart,
    for everything you do flows from it.
Keep your mouth free of perversity;
    keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Let your eyes look straight ahead;
    fix your gaze directly before you.
Give careful thought to the paths for your feet
    and be steadfast in all your ways.
Do not turn to the right or the left;
    keep your foot from evil.
