Dori Neumeier and the Hui Hula ‘O Punahele hulau will be gracing our front lawn once again with music and dance that will transport us directly to the Hawaiian Islands for a vacation without having to leave our beautiful grounds. This Fall, Dori will return to Good Shepherd to teach hula lessons. Stay tuned for the date / time. It will be an eight-week session!
Can you say kau kau? Say what?! You remember . . . the kau kau cooking contest! There is a Hawaiian chef in every one of us just jumping at the chance to show off their culinary skills. Once again, Daniel Lacroix will be the chef in charge of preparing a beautiful whole pig for the authentic LUAU feast. Time to start searching for that perfect dish to enter into the kau kau cooking contest.
Cooking is not your favorite thing you say? Then how about drumming up something special to create an atmosphere to transport our guests directly to the islands by entering our tabletop decorating contest. Or . . . you can do both!

Good Shepherd is sponsoring a Vacation Bible School for children kindergarten through third grade from June 3-7 from 9 AM to noon. The theme of the week is prayer. Participants will explore different kinds of prayer and will pray in color, movement, and song throughout the week. The program will be run by Lesley McIntire, Barbara Grey, and Heidi Currier. Good Shepherd children are encouraged to participate and bring a friend. Donations of $20 per child are appreciated but not required. Sign-ups will begin the week of May 13. We expect this to be fun- and spirit-filled week for all involved.
Good Shepherd® brand Coffee (regular and decaf)
Good Shepherd® brand Coffee is the perfect way to start your day. We feature our regular, single origin, Rwanda A Inzovu. It is a medium dark roast, that is well balanced and aromatic with smooth body and undertones of orange and vanilla.” Translation? “. . . your palette will tell you it is the smoothest, best tasting (as in knock your socks off) coffee ever to grace your mouth. It will make you smile. You WILL want a second cup. . .”!!!
And, as your day progresses, switch to our Decaf Costa Rica. We don’t think your family, friends or colleagues will have ever tasted a better, smoother or more well-rounded decaf. They will scratch their heads and ask, “are you sure this is decaf?” Yes, you can be sure it is decaf. We describe it as a medium roast that is mild and sweet with vibrant undertones of tropical fruit.
Your mission? Buy early and buy often! And . . . please report back to us with quotes from your family and friends. Great conversations begin and end with great coffee.
Fill your tummy and your soul with our deeply divine coffee. How about a conversation with just you and God? Go ahead . . . give it a try!
Call the office and give your order to Debbie Wheeler at 314-576-5502 or call Pam Evans directly at 314-330-2844.

About Taizé Worship
Our Taizé service is based on the worship of the Taizé community in France. An international, ecumenical community founded by three Lutheran monks amid the turmoil World War II, the Taizé community in Burgundy is committed to peace and reconciliation. The community is now home to 100 monks from all over the world. Hundreds of young people from around the globe flock to Taizé each week to join the monks in their prayers for the reconciliation of all people.
Each day at Taizé the bells ring out three times calling the community and visitors to prayer. Those prayers occur in quiet services of prayer, scripture, silence and chant. The worship of the Taizé community is known especially for the simple, repetitive chants of these contemplative services. Often sung in Latin, the international language, the chants, invite us to enter the depths of our being where we may be still and know the Presence of God.
The church is illuminated with candlelight and the rich voice of the soprano cantor calls us to prayer while the choir and piano lead us in the chants of Taizé. In the chants and the silence, we pray for God’s peace in our hearts and in the hearts of all people. We invite you to join us in those prayers to experience a deep peace that will stay with you long after the service ends.
