During Ash Wednesday we were invited to spend the season of Lent in “self-examination and repentance, prayer and fasting, sacrificial giving and works of love – strengthened by the gifts of word and sacrament.” (Sundays and Seasons) To help us achieve those worthy goals, we will gather for weekly worship each Wednesday (12 noon and 7:30 pm). Our theme for our Wednesday services will be “GO FORTH”, based on the Ash Wednesday Dismissal.
Come 45 minutes early to all the Wednesday Lenten services and visit with your Good Shepherd Family while enjoying some light refreshments provided by the Fellowship Committee.
GSLC will be participating in the ELCA World Hunger 40 Days of Giving campaign during the Lenten season. We will have a limited number of “coin boxes” (one per family please) on the table at Sign Up Central. If you feel you need a larger container for your coins, we will also be providing coin jar wrappers. With your help, ELCA World Hunger has worked on hunger issues for more than 40 years, and together, we have made an incredible worldwide impact. However, the rate of global progress against hunger is slowing in many of the world’s poorest communities. This Lent, we have the opportunity to reverse this trend. ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving is our time to give more – spiritually, intellectually and financially – as we live out God’s call to love and serve our neighbors.
Explore the stories of Stories of Hope, Liberation and Restoration here, along with other Lenten devotional materials. We will be featuring one story each week through our social media channels. Be sure friend us at Instagram or Facebook and share the posts with your friends.
