Good Shepherd Fellowship Hours Need Volunteers! 

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, renowned for the warmth and camaraderie of our after-church Fellowship Hours, would like to continue to have Fellowship Hours on Sundays. Because we have fallen on times of too few volunteers to work the counters and the kitchen, which resulted in hosting only one coffee hour between Sunday Services during January 2018, the Hospitality Committee is seeking volunteers to help with this beloved ministry. As ever, the harvest is many and the workers are few, so if you feel you are hearing the call to volunteer to help out, please do. Contact the church office to be directed to the proper folks.

We always need your assistance and would be glad to have it!

For most current news, please see the current edition of The Shepherd's Voice

SOCIAL MINISTRY COMMITTEE would like to know if congregational members need help with simple household tasks, like changing a hard to reach light bulb, lifting, and/or moving household items, repairing a dripping faucet or other routine household tasks. OR are you handy and willing to provide help to members? Whether you need help or can give it, please contact Lynn Bechdolt at or leave a message at 276-252-2960.

 We will meet at CVS at the entrance to Terra Vista and break into groups to pick up trash along a 2.25 mile stretch of Norvell Bryant Highway. Safety vests, gloves, trash bags, and pickers provided. For any questions, contact Linda Koch at or 386-589-4727.
