Good Shepherd Groups
The groups here at Good Shepherd fall into four different focus areas. Community, Faith, Support, Youth
Community is one of our focus areas here at Good Shepherd and each of the following groups helps us to grow together as a community of faith and/or to reach out to the surrounding community.
Inspired by Galatians 6:2, Stephen Ministry offers a proven and effective way to organize, equip, and supervise a team of congregation members—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties. Contact Diane Falls for more information.
Faith, Fun, and Fellowship
