We just completed another year at Good Shepherd Lutheran School. We say goodbye to our retiring principal Mr. George Traucht at the same time welcoming our new principal, Mr. David Retzlaff who comes to us from Redeemer in Madison, WI. Mr. Retzlaff is married to Bobbi and they have one son, Jacob. He and his family should be arriving in early July.

Heartfelt Gratitude From The Trauchts: In Jesus’, we bid you ultimate thanks for the Christian prayers, congratulations and encouragement for Nan’s and my future. We would like to repeat ourselves from our message at the amazing farewell May 23. “Thank you, Good Shepherd, for the divine call so we could do what we love best, teach, the past eleven years. Jesus is the reason and worth all we CAN DO with His Word. To all you – WE LOVE YOU! Dare to Run with your eyes fixed on Jesus! New address: N110W16867 Ashbury Circle, Apt. 1, Germantown, WI. 53022

Summer Worship Series:“Answering My Questions About God!” So what DO you believe about God? Throughout the summer months we will tackle tough questions about God. Using the Apostles’ Creed and Luther’s explanation along with pertinent Scripture, we will look at a new series for you and your family as well as good opportunities to which to invite your friends who want their questions about God answered! Questions for June:

June 6 – God the Father…Creator or Evolver?

June 13 – God the Father…My stuff or His?

June 20 – God the Father…Where is God when I need him most?

June 27 – Jesus…Wasn’t he just a great prophet?

Summer Family Ed:Summer vacation is here, but nurturing your whole family with the Word does not have to take a break. This year we are continuing our Sunday School for all ages (3-adult) into the Summer(June 6 – August 29). Every Sunday at 9:20 am, young and old can look forward to sitting at the feet of our called pastors and LES teachers studying and applying God’s Word. We are sure that all will enjoy the unique large / breakout group format and that it will offer a great change of pace from our normal Sunday morning Bible Studies. Don’t worry if you can’t make all of the sessions. Each Sunday is a stand alone lesson. Just come when you are in town. Special note: We are urgently looking for teachers for Pre-K – Grade 8 for the summer! If you would be willing to help, please speak to Pastor Tiarks ASAP!
