The February Shepherd’s Staff newsletter is now available online.
This Sunday as 150 million people tune in to watch the Super Bowl 48 million Americans will struggle with hunger. The youth of Good Shepherd want to help by participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring. This Sunday they will be collecting donations of cash, canned goods, and non-perishable foods to help fight hunger.
Help the youth fight hunger by bringing your cash and food donations to church this Sunday. Soup pots will be placed in the back of the church for cash donations. A box will be placed in the narthex for food donations as you enter church. Every dollar of the cash donations will go to the St. Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen. Food donations will go to the Weinberg Food Bank.
The Finance and property team meetings scheduled for this evening, January 21m are being cancelled due to the extremely cold weather.
