Where in Jesus’ Name are We Going?

Brothers and sisters in Christ of Good Shepherd,

It’s an exciting time to be part of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church! In October, November, and December we are being invited by our Transformational Ministry Leadership Team and Church Council to gather for The Shepherd’s Table. You might be asking, what is The Shepherd’s Table? Well…The Shepherd’s Table is part of a year-long transformation and renewal process at Good Shepherd. This process has also included a Congregational Vitality Survey, One-to-One conversations, a congregation-wide Bible study, and now The Shepherd’s Table events.

The three Shepherd’s Table events are opportunities to gather as many Good Shepherd members as possible at a table for a meal and a time of prayer, Bible study and dreaming about the future of our congregation. It will be a spirit-filled time exploring what God is calling Good Shepherd to live out in future ministry and mission together.

In November we will ask the question – “Where in Jesus’ name are we going?” Together, we will dig a little deeper into Good Shepherd’s God-given gifts and resources that have been lifted up previously and focus attention on the community outside the church’s walls. How does the community outside of Good Shepherd perceive us? How can we serve those who are not members of our congregation? How can Good Shepherd integrate more fully into the needs of our community? How can Good Shepherd serve alongside other ministries, agencies, and churches in western North Dakota?

Please join us at The Shepherd’s Table, II on November 14 & 15. RSVP to the church office at 255-1001 or goodshepherd@goodshepherdbismarck.com.

Grace and peace,

Pastor Craig
