Together in Mission | Pastor Mary Suomala Folkerds

Dear Friends,

Thank you for the ways that you help to make Good Shepherd a thriving Christian community! YOU make a big impact by your presence and participation here!

In Ephesians 4:4 it says, “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all!”

Together as this ONE BODY, we are #FOR Fargo-Moorhead!

In order to help more people to participate in our mission, we are offering a new way to give financially. It is called Pushpay, and it allows people to give through their smart phones or computers.

For people who do not regularly carry cash or a checkbook, it is:

  • A secure way of giving,

  • Less cumbersome to navigate, and

  • Allows you to conveniently manage your giving from your own smart device.

    You can give one-time gifts or set up recurring giving from your phone during worship, or at a time when you are managing your other giving priorities at home.

    You will NO longer have to:
    • filloutandturninablueformtosetuprecurringofferingtochurchor

• fill out the offering envelopes that you find in the pews.

For those of you who have been giving through the Simply Giving program that we have had for many years at Good Shepherd, you will be receiving an e-mail from me that helps you CANCEL your Simply Giving offering (including your Capital Campaign Pledges through Simply Giving,) and SET UP your giving and continue your Capital Campaign Pledges through Pushpay. If you would like help with this process, please call the church (218.233.4980), and we are happy to assist you. Once you have set up your Pushpay giving, you can monitor and manage your giving through your phone or computer.

We are excited to offer this more convenient giving method to the congregation! Your giving helps the church continue its work in the community and globally! And, it helps us provide this beautiful space in which we worship and learn with dedicated ministry staff here to walk with you in faith!

God’s Peace, Pastor Mary
