        Sunday School & Sunday's Adult Bible Class will be on hiatus throughout the summer.  They will resume on September 8.

        Thursday at 6:30 PM – St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church(17810 Farmington Road, Livonia)

REGULAR SCHEDULE TO RESUME ON SEPTEMBER 8
        Please note the change to the schedule which is coming up quickly.

>>>>> Sunday School classes will meet at 8:45 AM.

>>>>> Adult Bible Class will meet at 8:45 AM.  We will be working our way through the books of 1 & 2 Samuel, seeing how God continued to preserve his plan of salvation.  We will give special attention to the prophet Samuel and to the kings, Saul and David.

>>>>> Our Church Picnic will take place shortly after the service.  You are welcome to come to church in rather casual dress on September 8.  Following the service, we will fire up the grills to cook burgers and hot dogs.  Meat, buns, condiments, and beverages will be provided by the church.  Members are asked to bring a dish to share.  A Sign Up Genius will soon be publicized to determine what kinds of additional dishes people are bringing (no need to have 10 dozen cookies and no side dishes) and to RSVP.  We plan on having games and activities to allow our members to enjoy each others' company and to get to know each other better.  All are welcome, including any guests who happen to be with us (whom you are encouraged to bring along).

>>>>> In addition, we will acknowledge the completion of our mortgage payments for Good Shepherd with a mortgage burning ceremony, also on September 8.

BIBLE BASICS CLASS to begin on Monday, September 9
Bible Basics Class is a class for the benefit of all from those who are curious about the Christian faith to those who want to be further grounded in Biblical teachings.  The class is designed to cover...
... the basics of Christianity for those who desire to learn more.  
... what Lutherans believe, teach, and confess about the word of God.  
... what God considers “good enough” for us to get to heaven.
... how we can know who God really is.
... what God desires for all mankind.
Whether you are a Bible scholar or barely know what a Bible is, this class is for you.  There is no cost.  All materials are provided.  Come with questions.  Come with friends.  Come and learn what God wants you to know.
Our Bible Basics Class will be on Mondays, 7:00-8:30 PM.  
        Members of Good Shepherd, you can already start thinking about whom you would bring to this class.  Talk to them about it and attend with them.  For more information or details, please speak with Pastor Schroeder.
