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!
Friends in Christ.
Summer is officially here, and with that many of you will be traveling. So I pray for your safe travels. We will be here when you return. My point is this: the church goes on week after week, here or not here. But to keep it OPEN requires summer offerings that are just as important as offerings in April or December. Currently we are at 90% offerings to budget. We are about $3000 behind, so we need to be faithful and current. Be faithful for those vacation Sundays.
We are not having summer Sunday classes for July, and August. I will be teaching a youth confirmation class instead from 9 to 10 am.
Here is something to think about: WHAT God doesn't do! He remembers your sin no more. He holds no revenge or i1l will toward you.
He doesn't think about your past sins, and your sins are not discussed in the halls of heaven.
What He does do is forgive you. That's God' s promise and it's the truth.
It's good to know Christ's work is not dependent on your works. His hands are not tied by disbelief. He is present even in the silence of non-answers. He is true to Himself regardless of my lack of faith.
God is faithful. Dwell on that and have a great summer.
Yours in Christ.
Rev. 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.
The High Priest of a New Covenant
Now the main point of what we are saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, and who serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not by a mere human being.
Every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices, and so it was necessary for this one also to have something to offer. If he were on earth, he would not be a priest, for there are already priests who offer the gifts prescribed by the law. They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven. This is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: “See to it that you make everything according to the pattern shown you on the mountain.” But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises.
