GSLC Holiday Bazaar & Cookie Walk  2016

Thank you to everyone in the community and surrounding areas in supporting our youth.  We hope that you enjoyed the shopping, fellowship and food as much as we did and we apologize for running out of cookies!!  We will make sure that doesn’t happen next year!

The 2016 Holiday Bazaar/Cookie Walk was a big success.  Good Shepherd is excited to announce that the Knoxville End-of-Month Meals will be given a check for the amount of $1,278 and the other half of the profit will be designated for our youth.

Plans are under way for the youth of Good Shepherd to participate in The Grand Canyon and Southeastern Iowa Synods of the ELCA summer journey titled, “Rooted”. The purpose of this event is to strengthen one another for life and mission within the body of Christ. Through worship, learning, and service, high school youth and adults will gain insight into the culture and people of our respective synods while on the territory of the Grand Canyon Synod. This journey opens our eyes to the opportunities that Christ sets before us, calling us to deepen our commitment and discipleship as communities of faith and as individual disciples. Participants will be learning about the joys and challenges of the culture and the church’s role in responding to issues like human trafficking, homelessness, and immigration/border issues. Both learning and service opportunities will be integrated into the week.

The event begins in Las Vegas at 6 pm on Sunday, June 11, 2017, and ends  Saturday morning, June 17, 2017 in Phoenix.
