Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” (Matthew 25:40)
There is a place for you at Good Shepherd, and there is a great need of your time and talents for doing God’s work in our community and the global world. At Good Shepherd we believe our baptism calls us into a working relationship with God, our faith community, and our community and the wider world. Everywhere you look, there are opportunities to share God’s love and serve our neighbor. This is work we do together in the name of Jesus Christ here and throughout the world through the ELCA and its partners.
There are opportunities throughout the year to put our faith in action at Good Shepherd or with one of our partner organizations. Adults of all ages, children, and families are welcome to participate in our service opportunities and our annual events like the ELCA “Gods work. Our hands.” Day of Service in September and the MUST Ministries Summer Lunch prep in the summer.
In addition to seasonal outreach programs and those planned due to a specific need, here are a few of the ongoing outreach programs Good Shepherd participates in annually:
As a congregation, we also send benevolence support to the Southeastern Synod, Inspiritus, the ELCA World Hunger Appeal, and Lutheran World Relief.
Good Shepherd is always looking for individuals to help plan, coordinate, and carryout our service efforts. We encourage you to offer your time and talents through project participation or serving as an Outreach committee member. If you are interested in reaching out and serving in our community or have questions about how you can be involved in the missions and outreach opportunities at Good Shepherd, please feel free to contact us.
