Highlights from This Week’s Church Bulletin

Fall Discipleship Groups: Meet for 6 weeks, beginning in October.

“Lord, teach us to pray.” Our focus this fall will be prayer. Signup at the Welcome Center for the day(s)/time(s) you’re available to meet. This helps us form groups of people whose schedules match. If you were part of a group last spring and loved it, you may stay in it and grow those relationships.

Good Shepherd has 30 volunteer slots reserved to serve together as a group at the Feed My Starving Children site in Eagan. Our shift is 2:00-3:45pm.  We’ll plan to arrive at the site by 1:45pm.

Those wanting to carpool/travel as a group will be meeting at church at 12:30pm.  Sign up at the Welcome Center.  Children ages 5 and up are welcome to serve accompanied by an adult.
