“How Through the Holy Spirit”

Brothers Rear View Mirrorand sisters in Christ grace and peace to you. Advent is my favorite season of the church year. It is a time of waiting, a time of hope-filled anticipation, a time of experiencing new life. This year at Good Shepherd, Advent is also a time to celebrate all that is calling us to live out in ministry and mission through The Shepherd’s Table, III.

The Shepherd’s Table events over the past 3 months have given us opportunities to gather as one congregation at tables for a meal and a time of prayer, Bible study and dreaming about the future of our congregation.

In December we will ask the question – “How through the Holy Spirit will we get there?” Together, we will celebrate the many ways that God is abundantly blessing our congregation and begin to recognize how God’s abundant blessing is leading us to an exciting future of ministry and mission together as the body of Christ.

Please join us at The Shepherd’s Table, III on December 5 & 6. RSVP to the church office at 255-1001 or goodshepherd@goodshepherdbismarck.com.

Grace and peace,

Pastor Craig

About Pastor Craig Schweitzer

I like to think of myself as a pretty easy going person who seeks to daily discover anew how God is present in my life and in the world in which I live and serve. I am a husband, father, brother, son, friend, pastor, and maybe most significantly – a child of God! My beautiful spouse Wendy and I live in Bismarck, ND with our twin daughters, Ilia and Taegan and our crazy dogs Henri & Sadie. I’ve serve on the staff of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Bismarck, ND since July 2001. I was first called to serve as Music & Worship Minister, in 2010 was called to serve as Pastor of Worship and Youth Education, and in January 2014 was called to serve as Senior Pastor. My professional background is a diverse collection of musical and educational experiences that ranges from live concert production and promotion to recording studios, and live performance to music education. Prior to joining Good Shepherd, I was an Instructor of Music at Bismarck State College and owned and operated a successful teaching studio called 6x6 Guitar Studio. I am a graduate of the University of Mary in Bismarck and Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, CA and was ordained to the Ministry of Word and Sacrament in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in September 2010. Outside of Good Shepherd, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, reading, listening or playing any and all music, a relaxing round of golf, or spending some quiet time with God.
