Communications at Good Shepherd

The HUB is our database system and community tool that includes church, school and friends of Good Shepherd. We use it to communicate directly with specific group members, ensuring the information you’re receiving is relevant and directly pertains to you. There are several other ways Good Shepherd strives to communicate with you.

  1. The Panther News is a weekly e-newsletter, sent each Monday morning. It contains schedules and information for the school. If you are not receiving it, but would like to, please contact Dave Retzlaff
  2. HUGS is another weekly e-newsletter, sent each Wednesday afternoon, with links and mid-week updates regarding the church, WELS affiliates, and community events. You’ll find this newsletter often reflects items shared in the Sunday printed Shep Talk. This e-version however, provides hyperlinks to make it easy to RSVP for events, volunteer for needs, and find groups. If you know someone who isn’t receiving HUGS, and would like to, please contact Dana Sommer
  3. While we have made an effort to reduce Good Shepherd’s paper printing, the Communication Hallway still provides use of mail bins for some notices, and is lined with bulletin boards for each area of Ministry. Posters and flyers are available for viewing there.
  4. Both Good Shepherd and School are on facebook! If you haven’t already, please like the church’s page here and the school’s page here. Often, both pages share happenings of members and students that aren’t celebrated anywhere else!

If you feel you are missing communication from Good Shepherd Church or School, or feel there is a way we could better communication with you, please let us know by emailing

Blessings to you!
