Call Extended! Call Accepted!

On Sunday, September 30, 2018, Good Shepherd voted (113-0) to extend a call to the Rev. Dr. Julie Anderson to serve as our next Associate Pastor of Congregational Life & Pastoral Care. It is with great joy that we are able to share the good news that Pastor Julie has accepted our call!! Pastor Julie will be moving to Bismarck over the next month or so and will be begin serving at Good Shepherd sometime in November.

As Pastor Julie and her husband move to Bismarck, they are looking for temporary housing. If you know someone who is seeking a caretaker for their home while they travel south for the winter, or have any other ideas for temporary housing, please contact Pastor Craig. He can get you in contact with Pastor Julie.

Do you love to walk in the crisp Autumn air? Mark your calendar and join the CROP Walk for Hunger on October 14, 2018. Walk to represent the millions of families around the globe who are forced to walk several miles on a daily basis to obtain food and drinkable water! CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty and you can help to overcome poverty by walking or sponsoring a walker today!!      Money raised at the Bismarck/Mandan CROP Hunger walk benefits programs and people around the globe and here in the United States. The Bismarck/Mandan CROP Hunger Walk also benefits local agencies such as the Ruth Meier’s Hospitality House, the Abused Adult Resource Center, AID, Inc., and the Bismarck Emergency Food Pantry – 25% of the money raised at our CROP Walk goes directly to these agencies.
