The Easter Season or Eastertide is the period of fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday, which is held this year on May 24, 2015. During this season of celebration, we can also reflect on the Lenten season just past through many photos which remind us of Good Shepherd events and activities.

  • Weekly Wednesday night services using Holden Evening Prayer, followed by a puppet ministry and soup suppers, with three Luther College Choirs participating; Faith Stories shared by congregation members.
