Bulletin for Sunday, May 31, 2020

Bible Readings for May 31, 2020


Will Good Shepherd Open Soon?

We give thanks that Governor Pritzker has withdrawn his order restricting worship services. The Board of Elders will meet tomorrow night to go over our reopening plan. We will most likely be worshiping in the church next weekend (June 7th). However, we will continue to use some virus precautions for the month of June. The FM transmission of the services will still be available for those who do not want to come inside. The video service will also be available. Watch for more information coming this week through the eNewsletter, website and Facebook group page. 

Bible Study This Sunday

Pastor Walther will lead a Zoom Bible Study this Sunday as we continue our study of Daniel. You can login at 9:00 a.m. The study will begin at 9:15 a.m. The meeting ID is 870 7329 7237. Use this link if you just want to call in by phone. We will continue our study of Daniel in chapter two. These chapters will teach us a lot about the challenges Christians face when it comes to working with and sometimes resisting governments.

Tuesday Communion

Our Tuesday Communion service this week (June 2nd) might be cancelled if we resume worship indoor worship services on June 7. We will notify you if you signed up. 

Vacation Bible School will be held June 22-29. Currently we are planning a virtual VBS in which the students can pick up a packet for crafts and snacks at home. We will have our opening, Bible story and closing available on video. We will let you know if we might be able to conduct part of VBS here at church. You can register for VBS here.
