To see activities for December, and to see what happened in November.

In the past --

In November, Good Shepherd parishioners joined with the students of Bear Lodge High School to prepare, and then eat together, a Thanksgiving meal in the church parish hall. A new roof was placed on the parish hall - with thanks to the Foundation of the Episcopal Church of Wyoming for the grant we received. The church ladies continued to sew dolls, tote bags, and pillows that will be used as gifts for orphaned children in Belize, donated to the Long Term Nursing Care for their annual Christmas sale, donated to the YES House in Gillette, and donated to the Crook County Family Violence center. The church also continues to support the Sundance Ministerial Association with regular and special monetary donations.

Time passes --

How did it get to be December 8th already? The November activities at Good Shepherd are over and done and now we are on to December. Our first Advent Soup Supper had eleven in attendance. Julie made some delicious soup, Steve proudly served the bread he had made, and Phyllis 'topped off' the meal with an amazing dessert. We thought we should run around the block after this sumptious meal, but instead we gathered around the piano and sang Christmas carols. This Thursday evening at 5:30 we again meet for our Soup Supper and then we will share Advent / Christmas poetry. On Thursday, December 16, once again it is a Soup Supper and then sharing of Christmas stories. The next day, Friday, we will sing at the library during their annual Open House. Christmas Eve service begins at 5:30 pm for Lessons and Carols, Candles and Holy Eucharist. All are welcome come worship with us.
