Good Shepherd's OUTREACH MINISTRIES
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 help at our Food Pantry, made possible by donations from our parishioners, local businesses and other philanthropic organizations.
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 Prescription Medicines and buying Christmas gifts for children through the Adopted Families Project by contacting the church office.
Breaking the Cycle of poverty begins with the proper education of children. Every summer, talented and caring members of Good Shepherd coordinate two crucial programs that help develop educated and thoughtful Christian youth.
The Good Shepherd Summer Reading Camp and the Good Shepherd Vacation Bible School give children two free weeks to hone their reading skills and learn more about the teachings of Jesus Christ. Additionally, these children receive healthy breakfasts and lunches, and they benefit from being abound a caring, Christian Good Shepherd family.
You don't have to be a tried-and-true handyman to take part in our Saturdays of Service or be a part of our Wednesday Work Crew. You simply have to have the desire to help.
Saturdays of Service focus is on the immediate Good Shepherd neighborhood. We help our neighbors clean up and beautify their yards, and sometimes their homes. The Wednesday Work Crew focuses primarily on projects in the church.
