Good Shepherd Trip to Chuang Yen Buddhist Temple
All are welcome to join us for a day of education, fellowship and fun, including lunch, an introduction to Buddhism and the core teachings of the Buddha, and background information about the monastery. We will follow the tour with an optional meditation class and trip to the monastery library. The only cost is a $6 donation for lunch. We will depart immediately following the 10:00 am service. This trip is for EVERYONE – ALL WELCOME – Bring a friend!

Easter Candy
In preparation of our awesome annual Eggstravanza Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday, we welcome donations of candy (jelly beans, small chocolate eggs and other items that will fit inside our plastic eggs). We will be stuffing the eggs after the 10:00 am service on Palm Sunday (April 14). Candy donations can be dropped off anytime before the 14th and left in the bin in the Parish Office. (Note that we do NOT need plastic eggs, just candy donations please.) Thanks for your support!
