Have you checked out the thermometer in the Gathering Space? The thermometer records the amount that has been pledged toward the capital campaign and the thermometer is rising! Thank you to everyone who has sent in a pledge! We are excited about how God is at work here at Good Shepherd and how we can use our building to provide ministry both to our families and the community. We have received over $320,000 in pledges and pledges continue to come in each week. If you have not turned in your pledge, please go to the Good Shepherd webpage for the information or stop in or call the church office for a packet of information. God has placed before us a building that must be renovated and opportunities for us to use our building for ministry. Let's join together growing to serve and grounded in faith.
