IT WILL BE A BITTER-SWEET TIME as we bid farewell to Vicar Daniel & Erika Speckhard on Sunday, July 27th. You will have an opportunity on the 27th to hear Vicar Speckhard preach at both services (8 am & 10:30 am). At 5:30 pm we will again gather in the fellowship hall for a chicken dinner and some festivities. The chicken, beverages and table service will be provided. Please bring either a side dish, salad or dessert to share. Sign-up sheets are available in the narthex for help with clean-up. Join us in giving them a loving send-off.

“GOOD SHEPHERD IS A GREAT SCHOOL” These words come from one of the students here. In addition he writes: “It teaches discipline and kindness. There are many reasons why I like Good Shepherd. First, I like Good Shepherd because it teaches about Jesus Christ; therefore, I know I am a child of God. Knowing this helps me live through life’s many travails. Second, I like Good Shepherd because it is a small school. Since it is a small school, I know everyone here and I’m friends with them. When I feel sad, they make me feel better. Third, I like Good Shepherd because the teachers are amazing. They help me understand the lessons they teach, which allows me to get a better education. In conclusion, Good Shepherd is a great school. It teaches about Jesus, has amazing teachers and I’m friends with everyone here. These things let me enjoy being at school and help me to get a better education.” If you would like to explore the possibility of enrolling your child(ren) at Good Shepherd, please contact the school at 423-7677 or contact it by going to Download the Good Shepherd Lutheran School brochure here!
