Outreach

Putting our faith and love into action, serving our neighbors near and far

The work of the Outreach Committee is the work of the whole church – helping those in need, connecting with people beyond our parish, and building a stronger community. We invite you to join with us in these ministries. For more information email officemanager@good-shepherd.net.
