Dear Members of Good Shepherd,


The Annual Meeting of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church will be held Sunday morning, February 19, 2017 at 11A.M. Coffee, snacks and light refreshments will be available in the Narthex at 10:45A.M. The Church Council very much needs and welcomes your participation. Please plan on joining us.


We will have reports from our committees and organizations. We will review and vote on budget proposals for the congregation and Little Lambs. We will also elect members to the Church Council (3 members) and Nominations Committee (3).


Copies of the Annual Report and Meeting Agenda will be available in the Narthex the weekend of February 11 and 12 and, thereafter, in the church office. In addition to receiving this letter by U.S. mail, it will also be posted on our church website and forwarded to those who have E-mail accessibility.


Yours in Christ,


/s/ Carol McQuate
