Good Shepherd Lutheran Church & School - Lincoln, NE
Welcome in the name of our risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
At Good Shepherd, we are committed to preaching and teaching the life-giving and life-changing Gospel of Jesus in its truth and purity. In all of our activities, the heart and core is always the Good Shepherd, who laid down His life to save lost sheep like you and me. To Him alone be the glory!

THE SUNDAY SCHOOL CHRISTMAS PROGRAM will be on Saturday, Dec. 7th from 9-11 am for students in grades 1-7. Mark your calendar for the Sunday School Christmas program on Sunday, Dec. 15th at 4 pm.
THE INCARNATION OF OUR LORD is the title of a new short-term (about 5-6 weeks) Bible study on Sunday mornings beginning on December 1st. What does this term mean? Why is it important? You should have a better appreciation of the account of the birth of Jesus when you learn the answer to these questions. It is appropriate to dig into the Word of God at this Christmas season and learn about what the incarnation of Jesus means for you and me. Everyone is welcome in room 109 in the northeast corner of the main level. Pastor Berndt will lead this study.
CHRISTMAS CAROLING will begin with meeting at the church to pool rides and head for Homestead Care Center to sing for the residents there. Then we will divide into groups and take God’s Word through Christmas carols to the shut-in members of Good Shepherd. It’s one way we care for one another at Good Shepherd. Meet at the church on Saturday,
Dec. 21st at 10 am. More details will come in the next few weeks. Please mark your calendars for this family-friendly opportunity.

Sunday Bible Study & Fellowship: We meet upstairs in the youth room from 9:30-10:15. This year we are adding the 8th graders to the Youth Sunday Bible Study time. This study is open to anyone grades 8-12, college, or even young adults. We are currently looking at the book Broken: 7 "Christian" Rules That Every Christian Ought to Break as Often as Possible by LCMS Pastor Jonathan Fisk. We have some good discussion with the topics covered and so far the youth have been responding to it well.
The 2nd Sunday of every month is meeting Sunday - for planning events & informing youth of upcoming events. We set this time aside each month but we do still make updates & decisions on the fly so attending on Sunday as much as possible will keep you the most informed.
Sunday Rolls served by the Youth - organized by Jeana Wood, the youth serve rolls between services most every Sunday. Families are asked to provide the rolls, bit the youth group does try to keep a small back up or reserve in freezer in the kitchen to help supplement what the families bring. If you have any concerns with providing the rolls or not being able to make it the Sunday you're scheduled please feel free to contact Jeana and she'll work something out with you.
GOOD SHEPHERD YOUTH are offering childcare for Christmas shopping on Sat., Dec. 7th from 12:30 pm - 5 pm so that parents can have a child-free afternoon to shop! Suggested donation for this event is $5 per child with a max of $15 per family.
YOUTH CHRISTMAS PARTY will be following the childcare on Sat. Dec. 7th from 5 - 8 pm. We will order pizza for supper and have a fun holiday hangout with a gift exchange. For the gift exchange the gift should be no more that $10.
HIGHER THINGS “CRUCIFIED” at Concordia University in Mequon, WI from July 7-13, 2013. (Pre-registration is due by Dec. 25th, 2013 with the $150 deposit.) Crucified. We preach Christ crucified. “I desire to know nothing amongst you other than Christ and Him crucified.” The words of the cross are Foolishness to those perishing but, to us being saved, they are the power and wisdom of God. Join us this summer, as we receive all the gifts that come from the Lord, who was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate and raised from the dead on the third day. His crucifixion is our faith. His crucifixion is our death. His resurrection is our justification by faith alone. Our Good Shepherd youth are planning to attend the Higher Things Conference again this next summer and would love to have you join us! Anyone that is confirmed before the conference date can attend. College age and young adults are welcome as well. We would like to be able to send a check for the registration in before the end of December to ensure that our group gets the lowest rate and has a spot before the conference starts filling up. We will do a few fundraising events to help offset the cost and those who participate in these events will be the ones to benefit from the funds raised. If you have any questions we will be having an informational meeting in November. If you have questions before then or think you will need financial assistance, please contact Marc/Beth Huff at (402) 890-9752 or email@example.com or Andrew/Jena Wood at (402) 369-2691 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t let money be the reason you miss out on this event. We’d love to have you join us!
