Sorrow and Loss

SUNDAY, MARCH 22, 8:00 and 10:30 am

Good Shepherd, its members and friends have suffered many deaths recently.  We have experienced losses of other kinds as well: losing parents to dementia, losing our own health, jobs, or confidence.

On Sunday March 22, we come together as a community during worship to support one another as we mourn our losses and look forward to hope and light.  We will share a meal together after the second service, at approximately 11:30 am.

Please join us.  We encourage you to invite others who are mourning their own losses so we can uphold one another.

Generosity Gatherings -- What We Learned

In the past few weeks, the Stewardship Committee hosted several gatherings to explore the topic of generosity. We learned many things about how generosity grows in us and what effect it has on the giver.

Some of us are taught from an early age by our parents to be generous and to give at church and Sunday school. Others of us didn’t experience that guidance, but learned about generosity through lessons at church or by seeing others who practiced generosity. Read more »

It's Not Yard Waste - It's Compost!

First there was the green and brown bins to collect our garbage. Then there were a few blue bins to collect our recycling of paper, glass and plastics. Now there is a new grey bin for composting. It will hold all garden and grass clippings, as well as paper napkins and pizza boxes. Food scraps go into a plastic bag that comes from the Village of Oak Park and then can go into the grey compost bin.

Planned Giving to the Memorial Endowment Fund

In Thanksgiving to God for the many blessings which have sustained our congregation and its body of baptized believers, in Thanksgiving for the gifts of faith and hope through Jesus Christ, in Thanksgiving for the fellowship we share, in 1998 Good Shepherd Lutheran Church created an endowment fund as an expression of its stewardship with the hope that the ministries of Jesus Christ will be strengthened and extended in the life of the Church. See how your gift might continue the legacy through your planned giving. For more information contact our Finance Chairperson.
