A sense of Community

While fellowship is a part of all ministry, Good Shepherd has several groups with a focus on community.

Bridge Group
A group of Bridge lovers who meet for dinner and a friendly game

Daughters of the King
A religious order of women who pledge themselves to a lifelong program of prayer, service, and personal evangelism. We meet the 3rd Saturday of the month at 11:30 in Room 6. We would love for you to join us. Read more about the Daughters of the King. For information, please contact Susan Generazio or Kathy Moore.

Family Fun Nights –  Thursday nights through July 27th

In response to requests from our young families in both the church and our pre-school, we designed evenings of fun and fellowship for families with elementary and pre-school aged children.  We want to include other families in the broader neighborhood as well.  There is no cost.  There is also no baby-sitting service.

Each evening is divided into 2 parts – dinner and an activity:

Part I – Dinner – Everyone is invited to bring their dinner at 6 and eat at our picnic tables.  We will have our grill going if you want to cook hotdogs or burgers.  Or you can just come at 7:00 for the activity.

Part II – Family Activity

  • July 20th – SPORTS NIGHT – wear your favorite team gear and join us for all kinds of sports activities including many parent/child events
  • July 29th – CELEBRATE SUMMER – an evening starting at 6 with a church-sponsored cook-out for everyone followed by water games, a color run, and some old-fashioned events such as 3-legged races and sack races

I hope you will join us for as many nights as you can and that you will invite your friends and neighbors with young families to join us, too. Watch this space for new information each week.

Please volunteer to help with one (or more) of the evenings. We have a chair for each night but need lots more help. Call Claire at Good Shepherd at 703-323-5400 or contact Mary Helman at maryberghelman@gmail.com
