Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd Members and Families,

You are invited to Payton Decker and Ethan Olinger’s Confirmation Party Sunday, May 13th, following the 10:30 a.m. service.  A light lunch and cake will be served.

Payton was born as “the church baby” as his parents were youth leaders here and had no family close, until he was 3 years old.  Payton is a freshman at East High School hoping to take the Aviation Mechanics program through Central Campus the next 3years.  He is active in Boy Scouts and the track team.  Through the generosity of church members, he has attended Riverside Bible Camp every summer since 2014.

Ethan joined the church 2 years ago, but the Olinger family has already been a constant presence helping with Wednesday night dinners, altar guild, Meals from the Heartland, as well as many church roles such as assisting minister, lector, communion assistant, acolyting and even a clarinet soloist.  Ethan is a freshman at Carlisle High School.  He enjoys electronics, music and building things.

Come celebrate with these families this special day.
