One thing you should know about Good Shepherd is that food is often involved during our social and outreach gatherings — very good food, indeed!
Families can receive monthly help at our Food Pantry and the homeless can receive a bag of non-perishable items, made possible by donations from our parishioners, local businesses and members of the community.
During our Last Sunday Supper, we share a meal with our neighbors prepared by our parishioners and local volunteers.
Aside from food help, families can receive help with Utility Shut-off Notices or Prescription co-pays. Children are helped at Christmas through the Adopted Families Project. Contact the office for more information.
Good Shepherd's OUTREACH MINISTRIES
You don't have to be a tried-and-true handyman to take part in our Saturday Work Days or be a part of our Thursday Work Crew. You simply have to have the desire to help.
Saturday Work Days focus is on the immediate Good Shepherd neighborhood. We help our neighbors clean up and beautify their yards, and sometimes their homes. The Thursday Work Crew focuses primarily on projects in the church.
Breaking the cycle of poverty begins with the proper education of children. Every summer, Good Shepherd offers programs that help develop educated and thoughtful Christian youth.
Reading Camp and the Open Sky Clubhouse give children two free weeks to hone their reading skills, participate in sports, science, and the arts and learn more about the love of Jesus. Additionally, these children receive healthy breakfasts and lunches, and they benefit from being around a caring, Christian Good Shepherd family.
Good Shepherd does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, or marital status.
