Good Shepherd Lutheran Church participates in Habitat for Humanity housing builds through the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat, a non-profit with eleven area Lutheran churches as members. GSLC contributes to the Lutheran Coalition both financially, and through the efforts of GSLC members who volunteer to participate in housing builds. Additionally, GSLC members participate in annual Lutheran Coalition fund raising events.
