What burden do you ask God to lift from your life that you might feel happy, joyful, or relieved?
Members and friends of Good Shepherd enjoyed an evening of food and entertainment before Lent begins at Fastnacht. The theme of this year’s Fastnacht was GSL Goes to the Dog…Show. The evening started with a pot luck followed by entertainment and of course ended with delicious Fast Nachts. The entertainment included music and jokes by several talented members of Good Shepherd and a comedy skit by our members and pastors.
