PAST EVENTS:

CHURCH POTLUCK ON JULY 31, 2011:
We want to specially thank all of our ladies for their participation in our Summer Potluck which was held on July 31, 2011. It was very successful. A special thank you go to Donna and her committee for all of their hard work in preparing a great meal for all of us.

MANY THANKS GO OUT TO PASTOR JOHN PERLING FOR ASSISTING PASTOR GENE DURING THE SERVICE ON JULY 31, 2011:
On July 31, 2011 Shepherd in the Pines had the privilege of having Pastor John Perling assisting Pastor Gene Smith in the service, and preaching the Homily. His family was also present for the service and the potluck after the service. They were surely a blessing to us here at SITP.

REMEMBERING MEMBERS OF SITP:

As a congregation we want to remember Tracy.  She surely blessed us, and will be greatly missed.

Jane is now in the arms of Jesus. We as a congregation want to remember Jack Kunz in our prayers that the Lord’s comfort and peace will be with him during this time of bereavement.

LADIES FROM SHEPHERD IN THE VALLEY LUTHERAN CHURCH:
On Sunday, July 31, 2011 there was a group of 20 ladies from Shepherd in the Valley Lutheran Church from Moreno Valley who were here and attended our service at Shepherd in the Pines. We want to specially thank them for them being in our presence in worshipping the Lord with us. They also attended our potluck after the service.
