Our Divine Services are on Sundays at 10:00 AM.
THURSDAY AFTERNOON WORSHIP
An abbreviated service is conducted on Thursdays at 3:30 PM for the sake of members work on Sundays. Our final service before the Summer Schedule begins is May 9. Call or text (248) 719-5218 to confirm that you will be attending.
SUMMER WORSHIP SCHEDULE
Our summer schedule will be in place by the end of May, going into Memorial Day weekend. In the past, we have had a Monday evening service. This year, we are changing that to a Thursday evening service at 7:00 PM. The Thursday service will be the same readings and sermon as the upcoming Sunday. Our first Thursday service for the summer schedule will be Thursday, May 23 at 7:00 PM.
Regular office hours at Good Shepherd will be Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM. While there may be some flexibility to this schedule, we will try to keep it as regular as possible.
ADULT BIBLE CLASS — Galatians
Our Adult Bible Class is reading through St. Paul's letter to the Galatians. The main purpose of this letter was to offer correction and encouragement to a congregation which was convinced that human effort must be added to the Gospel promises to be assured of one's place in the kingdom of God. This is a constant struggle that we face, convinced that our salvation is somehow based on our performance or worthiness. This epistle, perhaps more than any other, teaches us what it means that we are saved “by faith alone.”
May 12 We are at the same time sinner and saint. - Galatians 5:16-26
May 19 Let us care for and encourage one another. - Galatians 6:1-18
ADULT BIBLE CLASS REGARDING SUICIDE
"And She Was A Christian" is a book that was written by Pastor Peter Preus, a Lutheran pastor whose wife committed suicide. What hope is there for those who commit suicide? Is it an unforgivable sin? Is it the fast-track to hell? What comfort can be given to those who grieve over the loss of their loved one? How does one handle guilt, blame, or the shame of being associated with one who has killed himself? Sadly, too many people have acquaintance with such a tragic death. We will meet on the Wednesdays in May, 7:00-8:30 PM, to consider Scriptural ways to answer questions about suicide and to console those who grieve over the loss of loved ones who choose to end their own lives. The remaining schedule is:
May 15 -- The Case Against the Suicide (Suicide and Faith)
May 22 -- The Case Against the Suicide (Suicide and Sin)
May 29 -- The Case Against the Suicide (Suicide and Grace)
If you are interested in the book, "And She Was A Christian," ($25 each), please speak to Pastor Schroeder. (Or you can order your own through the link.)
