Teal Pumpkin Project

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project this year.

Water bottles, a fire pit to warm up by, and some other treats for young and old will be available at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on Beggar’s Night.

Good Shepherd wants to help all of our neighbors on this night.  Halloween has a special connection for us as well.  November 1st marks the Festival of All Saints (or All Saints’ Day); on this day we remember with thanksgiving those who have lived and died in the faith.  This directs us with hope to the day when we who believe in Jesus will become saints in heaven.  October 31st, the evening before All Saint’s Day is named All Hallow’s Eve (Halloween).  We celebrate Halloween with friends and family, and we remember Jesus and what He has done to make us saints, in the same way we participate in gift-giving during Christmas while remembering that day as a celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus.

We’re glad to help create a safer, happier All Saints Eve!
