GSLC Is Celebrating 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!

Guys Fall Fishing Retreat/Campout

If you are looking for a fun weekend of camping and fishing, then please join us the weekend of Oct. 6-7, for  the annual guys fall fishing retreat and campout.  The guys will be going to Dale & LeeAnn B.’ property, which is located just north of Lockwood.  There is a large stocked pond for fishing from the bank.  Men and boys of all ages are welcome — and bring your friends!

Contact Dale with any questions.  Watch for the sign up sheet in the narthex.  Hope to see you there.


New Martin Luther Movie

Please, remember the Joplin screening of the new Luther movie which – as you may be aware – was produced in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation.  This movie, Martin Luther: The Idea That Changed The World, is scheduled to be shown at the Joplin Northstar Stadium 14 theater on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 7:30 pm.  A minimum of 100 reservations will need to be made by September 20th in order  for the screening to take place. At this point only 28 tickets have been reserved.  The tickets are $9 for all audience members.  This screening is being cohosted by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Carthage and Immanuel Lutheran Church, Joplin.  Please reserve your tickets ASAP so we will be able to take advantage of this opportunity.

Here is a shortcut to the website that was set up to provide moviegoers with information about the movie and a mechanism to reserve tickets specifically for the Joplin screening:


Easter Breakfast

Easter morning, around 8:30 am, the GSLC tradition of sharing an Easter Breakfast together will take place.

This event, sponsored again by the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, can only happen with the help of the whole congregation.  The LWML, along with the help of the Lutheran Youth Fellowship, will see to setting up, serving and cleaning up.  Along with your donations of breakfast casseroles, fruit, sweet rolls, and drinks, etc., we will all enjoy, once again, good food and great fellowship as we celebrate Easter, the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior.

Please use the sign–up sheets in the narthex to let us know what you are willing to bring, or call the church  office, 358-1325.

LOVE OFFERING  We will be taking a free will love offering for the breakfast, that will go toward our Lutheran Youth Fellowship (LYF).
