Winter Carnival
Each January, we sponsor a Winter Carnival.   It's both outreach and a fund activity for the community to do on a frigid winter's evening.    Well over 200 people attend the Carnival.

School
 These are pictures around our school.  Special field trips, classroom play, art or science projects and of course Christian teaching, help the children in our care to grow in faith and knowledge.

Trunk or Treat
Put on your favorite costume and bring your friends and neighbors to the church parking lot for Trunk N’ Treat on October 31st. Kids of all ages will enjoy going from trunk to trunk collecting treats!  We offer treats for the kids (and the moms and dads), games and a safe place for a family to spend the evening if they wish.  Come and join us!

Want to know how you can help support Trunk N’ Treat? You can donate candy for the event OR you can put on your costume, decorate your trunk, and bring some treats to hand out! Please stop by the TNT display in the Welcome Center this Sunday and ‘register your trunk’ if you plan to join in the fun. Candy donations can be placed in the shopping cart next to the TNT display. Thanks!

Each year we have nearly 400 children (700 people) total come through our gym, play games and get to know us.  What a great opportunity God has given us to get aquainted with our communities.  

The gallery contains images gathered over the past few years.




Our Church and School
 Here are a few pictures of our new facility.  More will be added from time to time, so check back regularly.  Hope you can visit us in person.

Our New Playground
 Our school was able to purchase a playscape due to the generous donations of our members and the parents and children in our school.  Willing volunteers spent the better part of a week putting it together.  Thanks everybody!

VBS 2009
 We had 41 children attend our VBS.  The theme was "Crocodile Dock."   THe children learned that no matter how scary things may get, God will protect them.  Following the Israelites through the Read Sea and using a bayou theme, the kids (and adults) had a great time!

Bethany Indian Cemetery
 Founded by the Lutheran missionaries from Frankenmuth, MI, the Bethany Mission served both the Chippewa native Americans and the German settlers in the area.   When the Chippewas were forcibly relocated to the reservation near Mt Pleasant, MI, the Mission closed.   The German settlers who remained founded Zion Lutheran congregation.   Good Shepherd is the direct descendant of that congregation and a number of our members are descendants of those early founders.  The cemetery is owned by the Michigan District of the LCMS but maintained by Good Shepherd and other generous volunteers.

School Visitors
 Sometimes the field trips come to the children in our school.  Here are a few pictures of some of the interesting guests.
