Announcements — April 22, 2018

† IN OUR PRAYERS  Janet C., recovering from knee surgery;        Carol L., recovering from another surgery; Jack H., dealing with multiple health issues; Andy S., recovering from an infection; Lydia N., recovering from surgery; Rhonda N., recovering from a fall; Lee Ann C., undergoing physical therapy at Joplin Health and Rehab; Earl G., suffering various serious health issues; Jody G., on hospice; Kathy P., suffering health issues; Sara P., undergoing treatment for cancer; Stephen Ministry and their care receivers.

† GRADUATES  In the May issue of the Shepherd’s Staff we want to recognize all those who are graduating or have graduated this school year from either high school, college, or trade school. If you would like your student included, please submit a photo along with a bio to the church office by Tuesday, April 24.

† SUNDAY SCHOOL OFFERING  The offering from both Adult Bible Class and Sunday School for the spring quarter will be going to Ronald McDonald House.  We are hoping to get enough money to purchase a couple of their “Dream BIG items”.  This could include two high chairs and a hedge trimmer.  It would take around $300 to purchase these items.  That seems like a reasonable goal for the quarter and what a great way to help out this great organization.

† MOM’S GROUP  Good Shepherd is trying to establish a Mom’s Group.  This month the LWML will be hosting a Brunch for moms on Saturday, April 28, at 10:00 am in the Fellowship Hall.  Brunch will be provided. If you are interested in getting together with other moms and visiting, sharing advice, having devotions/bible study and just enjoying fellowship time together, this is the group for you!  Any and all moms are invited to join us.

† LWML SPRING RALLY  The Spring Rally of the Southwest Zone of Missouri LWML will be held next Sunday, April 29 in Shell Knob.  Individuals attending the rally will carpool and leave Good Shepherd at 12:30 pm.

† SPRINGFIELD CARDINALS LUTHERAN NIGHT  On Friday, June 1, the Springfield Cardinals will be having Lutheran Night at the ballpark.  The game time is 7:10 pm.  Tickets, which are $15.00, will include a Springfield Cardinals cap and a t-shirt.  There will also be post-game fireworks that night.  If you have questions, please contact Jim G.  There is a sign-up  sheet on the round table in the narthex, remember to include your shirt sizes (Youth Sm – Adult 3XL).  The deadline for payment is May 6.

† BREAKFAST IN THE PARK  The LWML will host their annual Breakfast in the Park on Saturday, May 5, at 10:00 am.  It will be held at the Carthage Municipal Park in the large picnic shelter, so it will be held rain or shine.  This is for all ladies of the congregation.  You are welcome to bring your children — we will be right by the playground.  Hostesses are Judy G. and Diana E.

† THANK YOU  The shoe drive has come to an end and Donya M. would like to thank everyone who donated.

† PRAYER BEARS are in the sanctuary pews and available to be signed out (notebook in narthex by nursery) and given to anyone that needs God’s love, comfort, and peace.
