Dear Friends in Christ,ln a few days, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. As we reflect on that, we will indeed thank
God for blessings received. Martin Luther put it in these words, "house and home, wife and
children, fields, cattle and all my goods."
And then follows the season of Advent which prepares us for Christmas. Advent means "to
come". Christ comes in time and history, in His birth at Christmas. And then He will come in
Judgment one day.
We will have a Wednesday Advent service on December 4th at 11:00 am, followed with a soup
luncheon. Christmas Eve Service will be Tuesday, December 24, at 4:00 pm.
On Sunday, Nov. 1-7th, weticked off our Fall stewardship program. lt's called 2A/2O VlSlON,
"We Would see Jesus". Pledge cards were distributed and are included with this letter. Please
return soon, place in offering plate or box in Narthex. Your support is very appreciated as we
enter the new year of ?07A, with a Vision to Grow...and bring others to SEE Jesus. We will also

Here is God's promise for our vision: "and my God will supply all my needs, according to His
riches in glory in Christ Jesus". Phil.4:19. Be thanKul! Over all our years, God has been faithful,
supplying our needs. He has given food and shelter, and S$ for church offerings for the work of
the church, and to carry'out our mission and our VlSlON. May God work in your heart to be
generous and that's how we fulfill the vision and mission of the church.

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.
Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that,
“‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving,
and ever hearing but never understanding;
otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!’”
A Lamp on a Stand
He said to them, “Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand? For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open. If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.”
