Blood Drive Our 2nd annual blood drive will be on Monday, September 29th from 2-6pm. You may sign-up on the sheet in the narthex or at www.redcross.org and follow the “donate blood” box. Sign-ups are also available for baked goods, helping at the reception desk or in the canteen (where food and drink are served after giving the gift of life). If you have never given and need a reassuring word, please speak with Pastor Lueck, a long-time blood donor.

Dave Orr Website Our family has created a page about Dave’s health issues and what is still needed for him on a website entitled caringbridge.com. Once the website is accessed just enter Dave Orr to access his page. We truly are blessed with the outpouring of prayers and concern the members of Good Shepherd have shown us. Many thanks and God Bless! Dave and Pat Orr
Thank you The church has received a “Thank you” note from Seminarian Chris Suggitt thanking the congregation for your continued support. The letter is posted on the bulletin board outside of the church office.
Fellowship Hosts The sign-up for help with coffee/doughnuts is posted on the wall by the north stairwell. We need an individual/family to sign up each week to pick up the donuts and make the coffee. If no one is signed up by Friday of each week, the order will be cancelled. We thank everybody who continues to help with this part of our church fellowship.
Lost & Found If you are missing an item please check out the Lost & Found located on the bulletin board in the church office.
LWML Lutheran World Relief The LWML ladies will be working on Health Kits again this year.

A list of items needed is on the table in the narthex. If you have questions, please feel free to call Joann Hart. Thank you.
