Shepherd’s Hall Roofing Fund

In order to obtain affordable insurance for Shepherd’s Hall, the roof needs replacement and the stucco repaired. We have a roofer and a permit; we have a stucco repair contr5actor ready to go.

Now, all we need are the funds to complete the replacement and repair.

Will you prayerfully consider contributing to this project? The contract for replacing the roof is $61,500 and the stucco repair is $1,650. With your help, we can complete this work ASAP.

Chili Cookoff Fundraiser February 26 after worship

Do you make the best chili ever? If so, bring it to church Feb. 26 and compete against other chili cooks for the title “2023 Best Chili of Good Shepherd.” Sign-up sheet for competitors is in the Narthex.

Everyone else: come join us for a great competition, good fun, and yummy chili. Money raised from voting for the best chili will go towards two new and much-needed computers.

Help Replace Shepherd Hall’s Refrigerator

Now that the Hall’s A/C is installed and working, it’s time to check a new item off the list: replacing the broken commercial refrigerator in the kitchen.

Refrigerator, reach-in, two-section, (2) stainless steel doors, (6) PVC coated adjustable wire shelves, interior lighting, stainless steel front, aluminum sides, aluminum interior with stainless steel floor, 4″ castors, R290 Hydrocarbon refrigerant, 1/2 HP, 115v/60/1-ph, 5.4 amps, NEMA 5-15P, cULus, UL EPH Classified, Made in USA, ENERGY STAR®

Update on the Shepherd’s Hall HVAC Fundraiser

We’re now at $12,900–over halfway to our goal of $22,000 to replace one of the two AC units in Shepherd’s Hall. With summer almost here (and high temperatures already here, replacing this unit before we overwhelm the working unit is a must.

Please prayerfully consider donating to this necessary expenditure.

Shepherd’s Hall A/C news

We’ve passed the halfway point on this fundraiser. We have $12,840 of the $22,000 needed to replace one of the two A/C units in the building.

Please prayerfully consider giving to this effort. One A/C unit cannot keep the Hall cool in our hot summer weather and, with prices on everything rising, the sooner we can replace the bad unit, the better stewards we will be.

Fundraisers For Memorial Garden Expansion Fence and Replacement of Shepherd’s Hall A/C unit

The Board of Directors has recommended raising funds to expand and fence our Memorial Garden. We have many loved ones in there already and would like to continue to keep this open for our future loved ones. The cost to have the fence built is $3,700.

They also recommended raising funds to replace one of the A/C units in Shepherd’s Hall. The cooler weather now is not too much of a strain on the other unit, but summer is coming. The cost of a new A/C unit is $22,000

Please keep these fundraisers inyour prayers as you make your regular contributions to Good Shepherd. If you decide to give, please mark your envelope for the fund to which you wish your donation to go.

We have two big goals. With God’s help and guidance, we will be successful in raising the funds needed. Thank You

Weekly updates will be posted in the bulletin and website.
