Service to Others

Share your bread with the hungry, bring the homeless poor into your house, cover the naked when you see them. –Isaiah 58:7

All ages at Good Shepherd are focused on serving others in our community and the world through works of charity and works of justice, just as Christ did. Through various activities and educational opportunities, we seek to characterize Good Shepherd as one that fosters all of us to live in love, unity and service to others in Christ’s name.

Our Social Ministry Team identifies and organizes a variety of ministries designed to feed, clothe, build and advocate for others. We are able to accomplish these ministries through the generous gifts of money, donations, time and talents from the members and friends of Good Shepherd.
