Armed Forces Recognition Sunday (Sun. 1 May, 2016 8:30 am - 9:30 am)

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Minier will be celebrating with grateful hearts all who have and continue to serve our country on May 1st for the first annual Armed Forces Sunday. 


The congregation is inviting the community to help us with honoring our military. We would like for everyone to wear patriotic clothing and those who have served to wear their uniforms. After the church service a special presentation will be held to honor Good Shepherd’s congregation members that have served and currently serve.


Lunch will be provided and we ask that you would RSVP to the number below to ensure we have enough food for everyone. Information will be available about the Land of Lincoln Honor Flight program.


Good Shepherd Lutheran Church has partnered with Operation Gratitude for a collection drive to send items to troops overseas. Items we are collecting are socks (not white), lip balm, non-aerosol deodorant, moist towlettes (individual packets, hand and foot warmers, individually packaged razors, pen, and pocket-sized water resistant notebooks.


We encourage everyone to invite friends and family to come and help honor our men and women who have served and continue to serve our great country!
