If someone is looking for this church in Parkersburg, it is almost pointless to ask for directions to Good Shepherd Church. But if you ask where to turn for help, you will very likely be given directions to what is known locally as "The Pink Church." The Episcopal community that worships here is as unique in its giving ministry as in its architecture.
Having said that, Good Shepherd is on Charles Street which runs parallel to 7th Street but several blocks north. If you are coming into downtown Parkersburg on 7th Street, turn right at the light (just after Hardee's on your left) at Liberty Street. Go one block and turn left onto Charles Street (only one block separates 7th Street and Charles Street at this point). The "Pink Church" will be on your right at the fourth block. There is parking right off Charles Street on the right side both before and after the church. If you are going away from downtown on 7th Street, turn left at Latrobe Street (one short block after a traffic light at Lynn Street). Go three blocks and Good Shepherd is at the intersection of Latrobe and Charles Street. There is parking on the left of Latrobe Street and more parking in a lot just behind the church.
