Sunday Bulletin



Pastoral care will continue to be offered by Pastor Sam and Pastor Werling.   Please contact either of them at the church office at (402) 332-3345.   Our pastors will be offering weekly, online devotions in addition to weekly online sermons.


The Lord’s Supper will be offered in the Sanctuary between the hours of 4 – 7 p.m. each Wednesday.   You may come at any time during those hours, and please honor a distance of approximately 6 ‘ between others who may also be present.  


An Active Prayer Line is being offered by one of our staff members Warren Viehl.   If you would like Warren to pray for a particular need that you have, please call (402) 895-3162. Then press 1 to bypass the Robo Caller screening and leave a message for him. He will check his messages at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day, and will offer a prayer to God for your particular need. Warren will keep your request completely confidential.  


As you care for your families and neighbors during this time, remember also the needs of our church. The VANCO organization which manages our electronic giving “GivePlus” at Good Shepherd, also invites you to consider another way of giving to the church. Find more information about “GivePlus” from the sidebar of our website.   Or you may simply mail your church offering to the church – GSLC, Box 39, Gretna, 68028.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY  Good Shepherd is sponsoring a donation drive for Habitat for Humanity.  As with many businesses right now, they are shut down and not accepting donations.  But we know many of you stuck at home are clearing out closets and redoing your bathrooms and kitchens.  We'd like to ask that you look at the list HERE from Habitat for Humanity and consider keeping a hold of the items you have that they need.  When business resumes, we'll schedule a day for them to pick up from Gretna.  We WILL NOT be collecting your items at the church.  The collections truck will come to your home.  Email the church at with your name, address, and phone number if you want Habitat for Humanity to collect something from your house.  We'll email them this list of donors when they resume business.

GRETNA FOOD PANTRY  It has come to our attention that the Gretna Food Pantry is running low on supplies.  With all the children home from school, and many people having lost their jobs, the Food Pantry is having a difficult time providing all that is needed.  Please help by donating the following:  Toilet Paper, Kleenex, Paper Towels, Diapers, Baby Formula, Wipes;  Any canned food items,  especially canned meats like ham;  Pasta, and any packaged kid friendly meal;  They are also taking packages of hamburger, chicken, hot dogs, brats etc.   Donations can be dropped off at Resurrection Lutheran Church.  Just open their front door and put your donation on the table right inside.  You will not need to go in to talk to anyone unless your donation needs to be refrigerated. 



BAPTISM CLASS & BAPTISM PARTY are postponed. Please contact Pastor Sam at if you are interested in having a private baptism.
