Dear Friends, During this time of pandemic, most of our church activities are taking place online. Food Shelf distributions continue with special measures. We are now offering some small group in-person events, for which Good Shepherd follows all Covid-19 safety protocols. There are several monthly in-person worship services, and you can also worship from home on Sundays (the online service is available until Wednesday evening) and Tuesdays. And, a variety of “Out of the Box” social and educational activities are scheduled. Thank you for your support and understanding.

~ A Few Event Highlights ~
There is more to a church than the structure that houses our weekly worship. At different times during the year, we may invite special speakers or attend presentations. At times, we simply gather around a meal or for a joyful outing. Everyone is welcome. Upcoming event highlights are posted here. Details for all upcoming events can be found in our Weekly E-Bulletin. Subscribe below!
SATURDAY, AUGUST 15 – Food Shelf Distribution, 9 to 11 am. Our drive-thru system is still in place. We look forward to seeing your smiling faces. We can tell, even with the masks!
