10th Annual Heart Burn Chili Cook-Off

January 26th-12 p.m.

All members of Good Shepherd are invited to compete. The first competition tests the taste of your chili and a prize will be awarded to the best-tasting chili. A second prize will be awarded to the chili with the most creative name so be sure your chili is well-named before you fill out an entry form. Forms will be available in Fellowship Hall, online and as bulletin inserts in the coming weeks. These forms must be completed and turned in to Cat’s box by January  22nd if you plan to compete.

Chili Cook-off form 2020

And, with all this chili around we’ll need plenty of people to eat it. Plan to join us after 10:45 a.m. worship for a wonderful chili lunch with a free-will donation going to support the youth attending summer trips and camps.  Can’t make the event? Donate here with GivePlus and select the fund, “Summer Trip Youth Fundraisers”

Be sure to come in a “judging mood” since members of the congregation will be expected to pick the chili with the most creative name.

God’s Little Achers Event

Hunger Walk Run- 2020

Good Shepherd is now forming it’s team for the 2020 Hunger Walk/Run, which supports the Atlanta Community Food Bank.  The event will take place on Sunday, March 15, 2020 at The Home Depot Backyard. The event  runs from 12-4 pm, and the walk/run begins at 2 p.m.  The fee for registration is $25 for walkers and $35 for runners, for advance registration. Registration is also possible on the day of the event, but the charges are $35 walkers/$45 runners.  Register or donate to our team here!

Together, we can make sure that a child in our community doesn’t go to bed hungry tonight. We can offer a glimmer of hope to struggling parents desperately trying to make ends meet for their family. We can ensure another senior citizen isn’t forced to choose between paying for medicine or food.

Thank you so much, and we hope to see you at the Hunger Walk Run!

God’s Work. Our Hands.

“God’s Work. Our Hands.” Recap

This gave us an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.

Service activities offer an opportunity for us to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: that all of life in Jesus Christ, every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life, flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.

Here is the summary of the day!


Thank you all for using your hands to serve God alongside your brothers and sisters in Christ.  Below you will find photos from “God’s work. Our hands.” day, Rise Against Hunger at Hillside United Methodist Church, Men in Mission at the Extension.
