        In order to make the most of opportunities to proclaim the Gospel in our community, we need to budget our expenses and our time.  We will be meeting to determine our plans and to pray that God will bless them.  Our next Evangelism Committee meeting will be Sunday, September 22 at 11:15 AM.  All members are encouraged to participate in our Evangelism efforts, whether on the committee or not.  But we do need people who are willing to be on the committee to plan.

The Festival of St. Michael and All Angels
Lutheran worship is liturgical.  While that often refers to an order of worship, it can also refer to the calendar of the Church Year.  The Church Year includes major festivals, such as Christmas, Epiphany, Easter, Pentecost, etc...  September 29 is a minor festival, the Festival of St. Michael and All Angels.

At this festival, we praise God for his servants, the angels.  God employs angels to watch over his people (Psalm 91:9-12; Hebrews 1:14).  When we survey the Scriptures, we see that angels do much more.  They proclaim God’s praise and they point us to Christ as the Savior of all mankind.  On Sunday, September 29, we will heed the angel’s words, giving our attention to the grace God has poured out on all the world through Christ.

        Regular office hours at Good Shepherd will be Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM. While there may be some flexibility to this schedule, we will try to keep it as regular as possible. 

Look for Good Shepherd on Facebook.  Then “LIKE” us for updates and other postings.

God bless you.

In Christ,
Pastor Schroeder
