† GSLC CELEBRATES 30 YEARS  This fall marks the 30th year of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.  To celebrate this milestone, the Fellowship Committee is planning a pot-luck lunch for Sunday, November 5, after the 10:45 am service.  The Fellowship Committee will be providing the dessert, cake & ice cream. Everyone is asked to bring a dish or two to share, a German theme has been suggested, but of course, all dishes are welcome.  Hoping to have everyone together for a wonderful celebration of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church!

† SUNDAY SCHOOL CHILDREN The Sunday School students plan to sing in church on Sunday, November 5, at the beginning of the 10:45 am service to help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Good Shepherd.

† HELP NEEDED  The altar guild is in need of some more help.  If you would be able to help with communion setup and cleanup for the month of November, please contact Janet C., or the church office, 358-1325.

† NEW CHURCH DIRECTORY  It is time for a new GSLC photo directory.  Pictures for the new directory will be taken toward the end of October.  There are sign-up sheets on the round table in the narthex, so you can schedule a time to have your picture taken.  In addition, we will be in need of some help during the scheduled times to welcome people and make sure all of their directory information is correct.  If you could help during any of these times, please use the volunteer sheet on the round table to sign up or contact the church office, 358-1325.

† JANITORIAL STAFF  GSLC is seeking a person to fill the upstairs cleaning position.  If you are interested in this position, please contact the church office, 358-1325.

† VOTERS’ MEETING  At the quarterly Voters’ Meeting this evening 7:00 pm, our congregation has the opportunity (though we are not required) to nominate individuals for various Missouri District positions. As noted in the Oct. Newsletter, at our next Voters’ Meeting we are required to nominate a lay person from our congregation to represent us at circuit and district gatherings.  Keep that in mind as well.  Of course, the normal business of approving a budget and electing officers for 2018 will also occur at this meeting.

REFORMATION 500  In celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, our circuit will be holding a special Reformation service on Sunday, October 29 at 7:00 pm at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Lockwood. This service is open to all of the people in our circuit (and frankly, anyone at all who wants to come). Many of the pastors of our circuit will be involved in the service and there are plans to involve all of the different congregation’s choirs that wish to participate as well. This service will be a splendid opportunity for us to celebrate the Reformation with the fellow Lutheran in our circuit.

† LWML FALL RALLY  Have you ever been to an LWML Rally?  Do you even know what an LWML Rally really is?  Come find out as our own LWML hosts the Fall   Rally here at Good Shepherd on Saturday, Nov. 4.  All women (and men) are invited.  Registration with coffee and rolls begins at 9:30 am and the Rally starts at 10:00 am.  There will be a portrayal of Katie Luther, a lesson on addiction and a delicious lunch will be provided.  We hope you will come and enjoy this wonderful day of fellowship.
