Worship on the Go! June 9

It is Summer and we at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church know that this means many of our community may be traveling. But just because you are traveling doesn’t mean you can’t worship with us. Wherever you are and whenever you can find the time, we encourage you to take 15 min to worship God and speak the good news of God’s gracious love into the world.

Summer (knock on wood) may have finally come. Summer often brings with it changes to our normal routine. No more school, more hours in the day for being outside, traveling, rest, and perhaps adventure. I am excited for Vacation Bible School, Good Earth Village Confirmation Camp, the High School trip to Montana, and an opportunity for extended vacation with family. Summer will bring new places and new patterns and practices into my life. There will be a chance to live into the resurrection in new life giving ways.

Find new ways to commune with God, new paths to follow Jesus down, and new life fed by the...
