SPECIAL THANKS from Hannelore Brabo to all those who offered prayers and well-wishes while she was hospitalized and recovering from surgery. It was much appreciated.

THANK YOU for the numerous prayers and Get Well cards I received during my recent illness. I know God listened! I felt His powerful comfort, especially the first few days. I am so deeply blessed to have a wonderful church family at Our Shepherd. Thanks again! ~ Pam Masterson

THANK YOU – Ten months ago, our family suffered a terrible tragedy—we lost our beautiful newborn granddaughter, Saranda Marie Wedding. Four weeks later, our daughter, Saranda’s mother, Stacy, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The grief and concerns were overwhelming, and from the moment you knew of our breaking hearts, you, our Our Shepherd family, were right there to hold us up. Your love and prayers have been a constant support for us. You have been brave, you have continued to ask how all of us are doing, you have held us in your arms, and you have prayed for us. We don’t know how we could have traveled through this dark earthly time without you. Thank you for all of your prayers, support, and love. Four weeks ago, Stacy returned to the hospital for tests to see if treatments had cleared her body of active cancer cells. They have and we are thankful. Soon they will be here for a visit; it just seemed time to bring them home for a time of healing. A few weeks ago, they finished working on Saranda’s gravestone and it was placed on her grave. Healing continues. Thank you for helping us to heal and rebuild our very changed lives. ~ Nancy and Dan Weiss

Do you play a brass instrument (trumpet, trombone, French horn, baritone, tuba)? If so, please prayerfully consider being a part of Our Shepherd's new Brass Ensemble. This group will play about four times a year in our traditional services. Players need to be high school age or adult, with at least three years of playing experience.  If interested, please contact Joyce Zimmerman or Jason Christensen.  If you have friends who play, but are not members here, please invite them; they are most welcome to join us.

 

The Lutheran Service Club is sponsoring a Dinner At The Races to benefit The Sharing Place. On Saturday, June 13, they will gather at the Indiana Grand in Shelbyville at 4:30pm, with the buffet beginning at 5pm and the first live race at 6:05pm. Cost is $35/person and includes admission, race program, buffet, a race named for the Lutheran Service Club, Winner's Circle presentation and a 15% off coupon for the gift shop. Reserve your spot on or before June 8 by contacting Dennis Meyer at 317.781.0110 or email here.
