What’s Happening at Good Shepherd
Attention Parents – Children’s Chapel will not be meeting for the months of July and August.
Change for Life Thank you all for your donations for Life Choices! All of those baby bottles added up to $756.68! This is an even greater amount than Good Shepherd raised in 2017! Thank you so much for your generosity in helping with this fundraiser. Many lives will be affected by your donations! Thank you.
Congratulations! Vishal and Diti P. welcomed baby Avi earlier this week. We are so thankful for a safe and successful delivery of this sweet baby boy and are eager to get to know the newest member of Good Shepherd! If you’d like to bring a meal to the family, please see Christine O.
Good Shepherd Youth Group, ages 12-18, is run by our pastoral assistant, Tyler Van Fossen. They will be taking a break this summer from their regular meetings but will officially resume meeting regularly in Fall 2018 on Sunday nights at 6:30PM for a time of prayer, teaching, and games.
However…during this summer break there will be an exciting day trip to Arrowhead Bible Camp! This day trip will be filled with work projects, a picnic, bible study, swimming, and games. It will be on August 7th, from 9AM to 9PM.
Please contact Tyler Van Fossen if you’d like to know how to help or be involved in the Good Shepherd Youth Group in any way.
Bread and Wine If you are interested in joining a group of ladies for a monthly supper and discussion, please contact Liz Hull. The group is currently studying a book called Money, Possessions and Eternity, by Randy Alcorn. The next meeting will be in August, at the Hull home. Exact date TBA.
Mission Groups Locations will be changing throughout the summer. See, call, or text Ben Murphy for details each week.
Good Shepherd Food Pantry In Deut. 15:7-11, the Bible talks about how we should behave to the needy among us. How we shouldn’t be hard-hearted or tight-fisted but open-handed, and freely giving of whatever is needed. That applies to our pantry as well. When we open our hearts and give freely, our members who use the pantry benefit from our generosity. Therefore, before your next shopping trip, please prayerfully consider picking up something healthy for the pantry.
Needs: Canned vegetables and fruit, sweeteners, canned chicken or other meats, cereals (hot and cold), canned or boxed juice, macaroni, rice in 1 lb bags, pasta sauces, powdered milk, one box dinners, macaroni and cheese, canned foods like ravioli, jello or puddings (sugar-free and regular).
Last Week’s Sermon was based on John 2:12-22, and was called ‘The Father’s House‘. It can be listened to or downloaded here.

Tuesday Morning Bible Study This Tuesday morning’s study was canceled. The study will resume on June 17th.
This Sunday’s Sermon will be based on John 2:23-3:3.
Jesus Knows What Is in Man
Now when he was in Jerusalem at the Passover Feast, many believed in his name when they saw the signs that he was doing. But Jesus on his part did not entrust himself to them, because he knew all people and needed no one to bear witness about man, for he himself knew what was in man.
You Must Be Born Again
Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
