Octoberfest is coming on October 4!

Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church 
(41415 W. Nine Mile Road, Novi) 
invites you to our annual


on Sunday, October 4.

5:00 PM  --  Vespers
5:30 PM  --  Bratwurst Dinner 
6:30 PM  --  Luther Lecture

This year's Luther Lecture is:
Love, War, and the Will to be Saved. (1525)

          “They have doubly deserved death in body and soul as highwaymen and murderers... they cloak this terrible and horrible sin with the gospel... thus they become the worst blasphemers of God and slanderers of his holy name.”
— Martin Luther; Against the Murderous, Thieving Hordes of Peasants, May, 1525.

  We hope that all guests of our Octoberfest celebration will gain a greater appreciation for the confessors and the confession of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.
  There is no cost for Octoberfest, but we will have a free-will offering to offset any expenses incurred from our festival.
  In order to be sure that we will have enough food for all who attend, please RSVP to Good Shepherd at (248) 349-0565 or at welsnovi@aol.com.  Be sure to include how many will be in your party.
