Hear the Hlavka's hearts as they reflect on Alan's 40+ years of ministry.

For nearly 40 years, Alan and Theda have served Jesus and the Good Shepherd family faithfully as pastors and friends, with profound love for each and every member of the community. They have not only cared for us, but have also been an example of what it truly means to seek Jesus and live out His greatest commandment to, “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…and love your neighbor as yourself.” Alan’s passion for Jesus and His church is evident in the way that he consistently engages everyone in deep, meaningful relationships in order to share a picture of what his own relationship with Jesus is like. His expression of excitement and joy in the Lord resonates within all of us, creating lasting memories for all of the times that we have shared this connection. The mark that Alan has left in our community, by being faithful to the direction of the Holy Spirit, will be felt for generations to come. We are ever grateful for his teaching, guidance, support, and inspiration. As God continues to lead them, we are absolutely thrilled for the next chapter of their story, and we cannot wait to see how God uses them in mighty ways!

Women's Bible Study This Fall

Good Shepherd Women’s Ministry is offering you an opportunity to learn and grow with the women of our church. We have designed a framework where everyone is encouraged to find a small group of people who will study together. In a small group of 3-6 people, we will be studying the book of Hebrews using a Bible study written by Jen Wilkin entitled Better. In this verse-by-verse study we will explore how God “provided something better for us” in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 11:40). Check out the video here!

Sign up for Prayerline

For many years, we have created a Global Outreach weekly prayer guide called Prayerline and have made paper copies available in the lobby each weekend. Since we are not physically gathering together for a time, we are sending these out each week via email. If you are interested in being added click below to add yourself to the our weekly Prayerline email.
