Update from Good Shepherd (February 13, 2020)


        Divine Services are Sundays at 10:00 AM.
        Sunday School is on Sundays at 8:45 AM. 
        Adult Bible Class meets on Sundays at 8:45 AM and on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM.  The Adult Bible Class on Wednesday runs through February 19.

MEET-YOUR-NEIGHBOR BREAKFAST – Saturday, February 15 (9:00-11:00 AM)
Good Shepherd, in an attempt to foster a better relationship with our neighbors (and they, in turn, with one another), will host a Saturday morning continental breakfast once a month.  On the 3rd Saturday of each month (9:00-11:00 AM), we will invite our community to join us for coffee, juice, and pastries.  We hope to make ourselves better known to our community and to get our community to know us too.  Of course, we want some of our own members to be here to welcome our neighbors.  
Our first breakfast will be THIS SATURDAY (February 15). 

          During the month of March, we will be collecting teddy bears which will then be donated through Ascension Providence Park to children who are in St. John's Children's Hospital downtown Detroit and who are admitted to the ER at Ascension Providence Park.  Teddy bears are to be new.  Used and even gently used teddy bears are not permitted due to germs or other contaminates that may come from someone's home.  Drop-offs to Good Shepherd can be made on Sundays, during office hours, or by appointment.

        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.

        We will always have services as scheduled at Good Shepherd.  Since I live across the parking lot, I can get to the church no matter how bad the weather gets.  Even if the service is just me and my family, we will be here.  For everyone else, please use your God-given common sense to determine whether or not you will get on the road to attend any service when the weather is bad.  We don't want anyone to risk his or her life to be here.  But if you do venture out, the scheduled service will take place.  It may be only a handful with a cappella singing and/or spoken liturgy, but we will be here.
        Bible Classes and meetings may be canceled due to weather.  Check your email regarding announcements to see if any of those scheduled events is canceled.  If there is no email about it, it is not canceled.  But again, use common sense to determine if you can make it, and call the pastor to let him know if you will not be coming.

ASH WEDNESDAY is February 26.  Lent is coming!
        We will have a Divine Service with the Imposition of Ashes at 7:00 PM.  A supper will also be served at 6:00 PM.  A free will offering will be taken to help with expenses for the supper.  All are welcome.

God bless you.

In Christ,
Pastor Schroeder
