CAPITAL CAMPAIGN UPDATE - through February 28, 2015

We Are Blessed! Current plans are to include a financial update on the Capital Campaign in the News & Notes the first two Sundays of each month. Each update, as shown below, will show the total amount collected during the previous month and during the life of the campaign. From those amounts we will subtract the expenses paid for the campaign and then show the net collections. We will also show how the net amount collected has been divided between extra principal paid on our mortgage and funds set aside for current and future expenses to have a vicar. If there are any questions about the information presented please contact Nik Sandman, Gary Baker, Ken Knaus, Dale Bornemann or Brent Stehlik.

HOME GATHERINGS invitations have been sent to all households already or will be sent soon. This is an opportunity to get to know some fellow Good Shepherd members in a fun way, participate in a short Bible study, look at a video put together by our technology team, and share some thoughts about Good Shepherd’s future. Please call your hosts and let them know that you plan to attend.

PRAYER VIGIL on Saturday, October 18

GOOD SHEPHERD WILL BE HOSTING A PRAYER VIGIL on Saturday, October 18th. We begin with a Service of Evening Prayer to be led by Pastor Maronde at 5 pm. Following the service you are encouraged to join in private prayer sometime between 6 pm and 11 pm that evening. Prayer cards were distributed with your invitation to a home gathering and also at church on October 5 and October 12. If you have an item/concern that you would like your brothers and sisters in Christ to include during the prayer vigil, please fill out the prayer card and place it in the basket on the table in the narthex on Sunday or bring it with you to the service and prayer vigil. If you are intending to commit to prayer for a specific time during the prayer vigil, please sign up on the sheet in the narthex. It would be God-honoring if there were someone engaged in prayer for the entire 5 hours of the vigil.
