Upcoming Events at Holy Shepherd Lutheran Church

Holy Hikers (Strollers)

We are planning a different kind of outing for June: a walking tour in San Francisco,
led by the nonprofit San Francisco City Guides. The organization leads free history and architectural

walking tours in S.F., and is
sponsored by the San Francisco Public Library.

The tour will explore the mansions of Pacific Heights. It is scheduled for June 11
at 11:00 a.m., with the tour starting at Alta Plaza Park, atop the
stairs above Pierce & Clay Streets.

 Space is limited by the Tour Guides to 8 or so, so RSVP quickly, as we will
only be able to bring a limited number. Depending on who plans to go,
carpooling can be arranged. RSVP to Lisa Verley at the Church Office, or to
John Pomidor at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it


Summer Preschool Begins June 20

Miss Susie reports they have plenty of room for their 'fun in the sun' program, so enroll
your children soon! Pass the word on to others who may be looking for an
outstanding summer preschool experience for their kids! You can contact Miss Susie
at 925-254-3429 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it for more information.

The summer session starts June 20 and ends August 12. The week of June 27 is reserved for
Vacation bible School. (See following)

The summer program has different themes each week - cooking, water play,
planting, spirit week, trains, crazy-mixed-up week, and pet week.


Baby Shower Planned

We are having a baby. Yes, really! One of our members, Carol Schaaf, and her husband, Walter,
are expecting a little girl. We'd like to welcome our future member into the congregation
with a baby shower on June 25. You may know Carol - she is the member who creates
the beautiful altar flowers every week - the young woman who sings with Canticle Choir -
the wife of Walter, who is currently serving our country in the U.S. Military. If you
don't know her yet, this is a great opportunity to come and get to know her by attending the
Baby Shower and Ladies Tea on June 25.

Your job is to plan to attend and to bring something for the tea, i.e., scones,
tea sandwiches, dessert, etc.

There is a a sign-up sheet in the Center for Ministry for you to complete. This will help us prepare
for the shower. If you have any questions or would like to help organize the shower,
please contact Diana Yorgan. You can also call the church office to have your name
added to the attendance list. You may purchase a gift or be part of a joint gift.
