Christian Education News

The offering for the summer quarter combined with the VBS offering, which totaled $600.00 will be sent to Sharing God’s Mighty Word.  This organization sends free Bibles, Bible story books, and teaching materials to individuals and organizations who are struggling to connect people with the Gospel.  During VBS we also collected Bible story books which were donated locally  to the Carthage Family Literacy Council to put in their Little Free Library locations.  Thanks to all who donated to this project.

The Sunday School fall quarter begins on Sunday, September 3.  We will be studying how God works through prophets and kings.  During opening we will be working on music to sing in November to celebrate  Good Shepherd Lutheran Church’s 30 year anniversary.  Looking forward to seeing everyone in Sunday School as we study God’s word together.  If you would be interested in teaching a Sunday School class or would like to be on our substitute list, please contact Denise G.


Easter Egg Hunt

The LYF will be filling the plastic eggs for the annual Sunday School Easter Egg hunt.  They are asking the congregation for donations of rolls of nickels/dimes, small prizes, or bags of individually wrapped candy to fill the eggs.  Your donations can be placed in the container provided in the youth room or they can be dropped off in the church office.  Thanks for your help with this project!

Children’s Christmas Program

The Christmas story is always beautiful, but when told through the voices and faces of our  children, it becomes even more special.  Be sure to attend this year’s program entitled,  A Gift From Heaven Above, presented on Sunday evening, December 18, at 7:00 pm.  This year the Sunday School children took part in writing some of the lines in the script for the program explaining what Christmas means to them!  Please, come and enjoy the story of Jesus’ birth and listen for the lines written by the children.  There will be refreshments following the program.
