"Once we were Refugees" Sewing Program

Trinity Lutheran Church invites us to support the "Once we were Refugees" sewing program, begun by some of the Kansas City ELCA churches.  Many new refugees in Kansas City who are being helped by the churches are women who are experts in sewing, but they have no equipment and supplies.  Trinity members have already donated 8 sewing machines, material, notions like buttons, zippers,etc. to the program and will collect any items like that which members of Good Shepherd may want to donate.  Check through your supplies to see what you can donate and bring the items to our church office, marked  "For Refugees Sewing Project."    They will be taken to Trinity, where someone from KC will pick them up in a few weeks.


Reformation Preparation for Adults

Beginning Sunday, September 10th, you are invited to join us for a 7-week adult conversation on Martin Luther’s Small Catechism.  Beginning with this past Lenten season, we have been digging into Luther’s Small Catechism. In the final weeks leading up to the 500-year anniversary of the Reformation, we will explore more fully Luther’s Small Catechism. We will engage with Scripture, look at what was going on in Luther’s time, watch short videos, and review Luther’s own explanations, and we will join in open group conversation as we experience Luther’s Small Catechism in a new way.  

No experience is necessary. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to be engaged in conversations that matter.

This session begins on Sunday, September 10th and will meet every Sunday through October 22nd. Each conversation will begin at 5:00 PM and conclude by 6:15 PM. Please let Debbie or Pastor Ted know if you are planning to attend.

Please sign up by Wednesday, August 30th. A free will donation of up to $ 15 will be accepted (but is not required) and will go toward the cost of materials that will be yours to keep. Hope to see you there!
