Dear Good Shepherd Family and Friends:

I’m quickly falling in love with you. Each week that passes I am feeling more comfortable and at home. Thank you for your receptivity and openness. 

I tell people everywhere I go that I have never seen a church with more core strength or as much potential as Good Shepherd UMC.

Have you heard about our upcoming Maundy Thursday Passover Seder Meal? It’s going to be an extraordinary experience. It will help you to learn about Jesus’ Jewishness and the origins of what we call Holy Communion. Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 18 and sign up for Noon or 6 PM seating. Look below for details. BTW: We still need table hostesses and hosts. (Click on the Seder Dinner graphic to register or click HERE.)

Thank you for your financial faithfulness. The February financials, which shown below, don’t look very good, but thanks to your help, the March numbers look better. One of my long-term financial concerns for Good Shepherd is that the building debt payments will be increasing. So your consistent stewardship will be needed and appreciated. 

Join us on Sunday in the Worship Center at 9:15 or 10:45 AM. Invite a neighbor or friend to come with you. If you’re ill or out of town, join us online at My message will be entitled:


Luke 9:28-36; Hebrews 12:1-3

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
