To Our GSLC Members . . .

After years of emailing our newsletters directly to you, our members, we have found that the newsletters are becoming more and more difficult to send and be received. We are sending a short email with a link to the actual newsletter on the web site.

The rules governing emails labeled as "spam" havecan of spam grown to the point that certain common words (like "dollars" and "donate") can cause emails to be labeled as "spam". In addition, your email service provider (Cox, hotmail, etc.) may block or mislabel our newsletters as spam if enough recipients (you!) do not open and "engage with" each email.

If you do not open (and click to read) most of the newsletters you receive from now on we will eventually assume that you are not interested in receiving them and may remove you from the email list (we will write to you first) to protect the sending process for everyone else. Please open and click on the link in the email every month to keep up the deliverability of our newsletters.

Thank you,

Your GSLC newsletter team

Sermon Series Concludes - Linchpin: Reasons to Believe the Resurrection

Linchpin-the Resurrection

The apostle Paul says that the resurrection of Jesus is the event on which our faith stands or falls. But can we test whether the resurrection is true? In this series, we look at evidence for Jesus’ resurrection. Theme Verse: “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.” (1 Corinthians 15:17)

September 3      Dying for a Life – John 21:15-19


New Sermon Series - Thoughts and Prayers

Whenever a tragedy strikes, national leaders will often announce that they are sending what has become a much-maligned offering of “thoughts and prayers.”

Thoughts and Prayers sermon seriesMany people not only question the sincerity of these offerings, but their effectiveness. “Does prayer do anything?” “Does anyone hear?”

In this series, we explore the amazing gift of prayer and why every circumstance – whether it is joyful or tragic – ought to be informed and formed by prayer.

September 10    The Privilege of Prayer — Hebrews 4:12-16

                                Key Question: Does God hear me?

September 17    The Power of Prayer — James 5:13-18

                                Key Question: Does prayer change things?

September 24    The Path of Prayer — Matthew 6:9-13

                                Key Question: How do I pray?

October 1            The Problem of Prayer — 2 Corinthians 12:7-10

                                Key Question: What do I do when God says no?

October 8            The Priority of Prayer — 1 Thessalonians 5:14-21

                                Key Question: When should I pray?


Sunday Bible StudyLinchpin title

Our Livestream Sunday Services Now Include Closed Captioning
Old TVWe livestream our Sunday service at 9:30 am which is able to be viewed around 9:25 for announcements when the service starts. You can also watch it on our website any time after that. We also livestream our Lent, Holy Week and Advent services.
All services now include closed captioning. Just look for the CC symbol on the screen (not included on phone screens due to size) and click on it. We suggest that you turn this on for Pastor's announcements and the sermon but leave it off for the liturgy and music as the liturgy and song lyrics are already on the video.
This is a full service - prayers, sermon and music. The liturgy will be provided on the web site as a PDF document, along with a "public" version of the weekly bulletin (no contact information and no weekly giving statement). The recording includes the liturgy and song lyrics superimposed on the video images. You are encouraged to respond to the liturgy and sing along with Adam. Go to:
If you do not have a way to view our GSLC service at home, we have a limited number of Kindle tablets available. These are provided, upon request, with recordings of GSLC's recent church services. These are self-contained touch screen video devices. Please contact Trisha at the office during the week (Monday - Thursday, 8am to noon) at 805 967-1416 for more information about the tablets.


GSLC's Worship Schedule


Sunday worship continues with one service at 9:30 a.m. We alternate two styles of worship. On the 1st and 3rd (and 5th) Sundays the organ will generally lead us in song and the order of service is more traditional liturgy. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays the band will lead us in song and the order of service is a blend of contemporary and traditional form.


Better Read Than Dead Book Club


Book Club Reading for September, October
Reminder: We continue our in-person meetings in the Fireside Room for our monthly book club discussions.

The books chosen for our GSLC “Better Read than Dead” club discussions are below. Join us in reading along!
For September 9th meeting: “The Maid” by Nita Prose
Molly Gray is not like everyone else. She struggles withThe Maid social skills and misreads the intentions of others. Her gran used to interpret the world for her, codifying it into simple rules that Molly could live by.
Since Gran died a few months ago, twenty-five-year-old Molly has been navigating life's complexities all by herself. No matter—she throws herself with gusto into her work as a hotel maid. Her unique character, along with her obsessive love of cleaning and proper etiquette, make her an ideal fit for the job. She delights in donning her crisp uniform each morning, stocking her cart with miniature soaps and bottles, and returning guest rooms at the Regency Grand Hotel to a state of perfection.
But Molly's orderly life is upended the day she enters the suite of the infamous and wealthy Charles Black, only to find it in a state of disarray and Mr. Black himself dead in his bed. Before she knows what's happening, Molly's unusual demeanor has the police targeting her as their lead suspect. She quickly finds herself caught in a web of deception, one she has no idea how to untangle. Fortunately for Molly, friends she never knew she had unite with her in a search for clues to what really happened to Mr. Black—but will they be able to find the real killer before it's too late?
A Clue-like, locked-room mystery and a heartwarming journey of the spirit, The Maid explores what it means to be the same as everyone else and yet entirely different—and reveals that all mysteries can be solved through connection to the human heart.
For October 14th meeting: “One By One” by Ruth Ware
Getting snowed in at a beautiful, rustic mountain chalet One by One Coverdoesn’t sound like the worst problem in the world, especially when there’s a breathtaking vista, a cozy fire, and company to keep you warm. But what happens when that company is eight of your coworkers…and you can’t trust any of them?
When an off-site company retreat meant to promote mindfulness and collaboration goes utterly wrong when an avalanche hits, the corporate food chain becomes irrelevant and survival trumps togetherness. Come Monday morning, how many members short will the team be?
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Turn of the Key and In a Dark Dark Wood returns with another suspenseful thriller set on a snow-covered mountain.
Jump in! New folks are welcome anytime to read with us and “meet”.  Just order/start reading the “next” book in line and give me, Val Eurman, a call at 805-705-3311 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more details and to get on our email list!
Please Help Us with Livestreaming!

Some of our GSLC members are not able to attend services in person and depend on our video services and watch (mostly live) each week. We are continuing livestreaming the Sunday services and the Wednesday morning meditations plus livestream the midweek Lent and Advent services as before.

We have a core of five GSLC members that enter the weekly worship service text, organize the sermon slides, set up the video feed, do the live camera switching for the services and meditations, record the services, etc. every week.

video crewWe need more team members to provide relief and someone to take over when we are not able to do this.

We need your help so we can continue livestreaming all of these services and events. Ideally, you would be able to assist with the Sunday service and/or Wednesday meditation livestreaming once a month, step in if other team members are not available, and perhaps do some of the Lent or Advent evening service livestreaming.

No experience needed - we will train you!

If you are interested, please contact Dan Barnett (805 729-5993) and/or Fred Barbaria (805 680-0288) for more information. Or, just come and see us in the AV area after the Sunday service.

GSLC's On Line Giving Options

coin purseGood Shepherd has offered electronic donation capabilities (through Vanco) for a while. You now have the ability to sign up directly through Good Shepherd's web site to donate on line (through Vanco) once or on a recurring basis.

You can also make a special one-time donation (through Square) on Good Shepherd's website.

For either donation type go to and then click on the appropriate donation button. You can specify whether you are donating to the GSLC budget or the Food Distribution program. If you prefer, you can also mail us your offering or drop it off at the church office.

IRA Distributions to Charity Are a Permanent Part of Tax Code!!

Congress made permanent qualified charitable distributions from individuals. This law permits annual direct transfers to a qualified charity totaling up to $100,000 of tax-deferred IRA savings. Funds distributed to the owner first and then donated do not qualify.

This includes the mandatory distributions for IRA owners 70-1/2 years of age and over.

This is a benefit to the donor as income taxes on social security benefits can decrease as the distribution is not reported as income for the donor. If the donor no longer itemizes their deductions this is a way to get the benefit of the donation as the IRA distribution is not included in income and thus not subject to income taxes.

To make a contribution you must contact your IRA trustee to make a transfer directly to the charity. Should you wish to make a donation to the church have the checks made payable to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and have the check mailed to us directly. Be sure that the check includes your name on the memo line.

We will issue a letter of acknowledgement that we have received your donation. Please call David at 805 967-1416 x103 in the accounting office with any questions.

Good Shepherd in the World

Background: Recently Pastor Paul and Nelson FamilyGenevieve (Gena) Nelson received and accepted the call to serve on behalf of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Indonesia, based in Medan.

Pastor Nelson and his family served Emanuel Lutheran Church, Santa Barbara for 10 ½years. In this new role, Pastor Paul works closely with the Indonesian Christian Lutheran Church and helps train and mentor local pastors and lay leaders.

The Need: Pastor Nelson and family need fellow believers to partner with them in this new role.How can we partner with them?

First, PRAY. Pray for Paul and Gena as they serve in Indonesia. Pray also for each member of the family as they transition to a new location and culture. Ask God to give them patience and confidence as they learn Bahasa Indonesia, the official language of the country. Pray also that they would be able to establish good relationships with the people around them in their new home. Let us give thanks that the Nelson family is serving in this part of the world.

Second, ENCOURAGEMENT. Moving is challenging no matter where you go. Moving to a different country with a different language, different customs, different climate, is exponentially challenging! Birthdays and anniversaries still come around every year. A card or a note of support and encouragement is a meaningful gift that bridges the miles and changes.

Third, MONEY. Yes, money. Pastor Nelson is required to raise his own financial support for his family. That’s how he gets “paid.”

The Opportunity: This is our opportunity to partner with Pastor and Gena Nelson and support them in their work in Indonesia. Being a partner with Pastor Paul and Gena is one of the ways we can follow our mandate of listening to the voice of our Good Shepherd Jesus and fulfill our mission of “Excite the believers and share the Gospel.” Partnering with Pastor Nelson will be a blessing for us.

The Challenge: Will we partner with the Nelsons? Are we up for it? Can we commit to meeting the needs? I hope so! I pray so! Please prayerfully consider how you might meet a need for Pastor Paul and Gena Nelson and family. I know that our Good Shepherd, the Lord Jesus, can lead usinto a meaningful partnership that will bless Pastor Nelson and his family and the church and people of Indonesia.

Please check out the video of Pastor Paul Nelson as he explains his new role as Theological Educator in Indonesia. The video is available on GSLC's web site here

Talking to Jesus in the Arts

Art therapy with the Great Comforter

Zoom Session on the Third Saturday of Every Month at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 12:45 pm to 3:30 pm Room 14

"Finding Peace"

In the comfort of your home, we will connect with you for a time devoted to hearing God. A way to begin to seek peace is through drawing or painting lines and shapes on paper or canvas while talking to Jesus. A simple way to communicate even if you do not pray or have ever heard God speak to you or not.

With Lizzy's guidance, step by step and themarkers for Workshop colors you will be choosing, our prayer for you is to hear God even if you have never heard Him before. We pray ahead of time that you will sense, hear or see what God is saying to you. These painting sessions have been remarkable for so many. Everyone must start checking in at 12:45 pm. After 1 pm sharp, no one is allowed to join.

We are not trying to create an art form, but rather to get in touch with our hearts in hearing and contemplating what God is saying to us - practicing the presence of God. The movement of drawing or painting allows us to hear, sense or see in areas where we may be blocked or have missed what God is speaking to us.

The deadline for sign-up and payment is the Thursday before each session to save your space. Everyone is able to do this; no art experience is required. You may use markers, pastels, colored pencils, or paint, your choice. Ten people limit on Zoom. Zoom suggested a donation $25 - Zelle or Pay Pal. Once you have paid, Lizzy will send you the art supplies and information for you to be ready for class.

To sign up, please contact Lizzy at 805-453-0571.
