Members and friends of Divine Shepherd will be painting a house in Omaha in August 2007 for someone in need. If you can help, please call Vern or Kathy in the church office (895-1500) to sign up. We will be having a blood drive in May 2007. The Red Cross is in great need of blood donors with the war going on and the number of baby boomers requiring surgery. If you can help reach our goal of 75 donors, please call Kathy or Vern in the church office (895-1500) for a time slot. As we have been given so much, let us give back to our community.
