Mission Forums - The Vision Council would like to invite you to attend the Forums planned to    review and comment on the summary of the survey results gathered by the Vision Council to     determine funding and staffing needs for our congregation.  The Vision Council has prioritized the recommendations for the survey, with feedback from the Leadership Teams, into three sections of recommendations which can also be sustainably supported based on historical and forecasted revenue. These recommendations will be reviewed and clarified by Vision Council members at these Forums. Comments from the congregation are invited to help identify the final recommendations that will be formally adopted and used to help plan the revised budget for the coming year.

Watering Flower Pots

Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd is looking for some people to water the flower pots at church. We are hoping to have someone come to church on Mondays and Thursdays. The pots are under the roof so they will still need watering but if it's raining on your day just come the day after. Thank you for your generosity of your time and energy.

Any problems can be answered by Cyndi Venberg 


Please signup for a timeslot HERE. If you need any help signing up please call (218-525-1922) or e-mail ( the church office.
