  • When I was in school at Good Shepherd Lutheran, years ago--1965-1969 or so, I had wonderful teachers and the facility was great, with friends that helped make my childhood great. I will always thank God for the caring staff there and the families of the children I went to school with, who were very kind as we learned our grade school basics, starting and ending with our Lord Jesus Christ and His forgiving love.
    I encourage anyone thinking about Christian education, to look into Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and School to know Jesus and the abundant life He promises us as a free gift. The cost of Christian education cannot be compared to the richness of God's grace dispensed by Christian teachers and families. God bless you in your decisions for yourself and your family.
    A grateful convinced participant of Christian education,
    Pastor Paul Hauser
