Why Do We Share?

The congregation of Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church believe that sharing of their time and talents is part of our calling as a Christian Community. We believe that God loves a cheerful giver.

The quilters have designed, made and sent out quilts to wherever there is a need, musicians give of their abilities, cooks who bring wonderful meals, people participating in leading the service, and in maintaining the building, but what we are best at is praying for the world, the church and each other. In keeping with this concept, Good Shepherd also gives to the local and world wide community. We financially support local projects, disaster relief programs and other worldwide missions via the NALC. We believe that we are here to not only worship Jesus but also to be His hands and voice wherever we go.
