On behalf of the capital appeal campaign committee and the church council, we would like to share some exciting news with everyone! Last Sunday at the annual meeting there was a unanimous vote to proceed with the 2nd capital appeal campaign!!!!! We are ecstatic to have the support from the congregation and feel blessed to have the privilege of moving forward. At this time we want to share what those next steps are: 

  • We will be contacting individuals/families for personal meetings to build our leadership base. Please let us know if you would like a personal meeting arranged. Contact Pastor Krista, krista.goodshepherd@gmail.comor the church office. We will also be scheduling two congregational events for informational sharing:
  •  Sunday February 12th at 9:15 in the sanctuary between services: sharing of our timeline and information on our pledge drive.
  • Sunday March 5th at 9:15 in the sanctuary between services, and 6:30 pm at the church: kick-off our pledge drive.
