THIS WEEK AT GOOD SHEPHERD
MID-MONTH MEAL ~We don’t need to wait for a special occasion to feast together, so let’s start gathering in the parish hall after Sunday School the 3rd Sunday of every month for a potluck. If every family brings one entrée along with a side or dessert, we’ll always have plenty to eat no matter who can come. No need to RSVP every month. Just bring your food, your family, and a healthy appetite the 3rd Sunday of every month, and let’s break bread together. November 18th will be our inaugural Mid-Month Meal, so mark your calendars! Questions? Talk to Katie Schuermann.
