We exist to bring glory to God by "Being" and "Making" committed Followers of Jesus Christ. Jesus has taught us that we are to enact our faith not through words alone, but also in our actions. Being a disciple means being an agent of physical hope to a world that God is redeeming. Good Shepherd sees the world through God's redeeming lenses, and the role of our church and the Church (Universal) is to begin the work of restoration that we know God will finish at the second coming (Revelation 21). Out of this gospel-centered service is the overflow of discipleship, serving those in and outside the church. One of the ways we pursue and live out this discipleship trait is through volunteer opportunities.
Volunteers at Good Shepherd minister to 3 year olds - 5th graders during weekend worship services and during our "Sunday Morning Grow" Hour. They lead by telling stories and by creatively teaching the truth of God's Word. They head classrooms or provide assistance to classroom teachers.
We're always looking for great individuals to love and serve our kids, and help show the love of Christ to them during our gatherings. If you're someone who would like to serve, or just know a little bit more about, please connect with us.
Sunday Morning Gatherings:
Those serving through our Student Ministries get the opportunity to build and foster relationships with students in grades 6-12. Middle school students and high school students are led separately during our "Sunday Morning Grow" hour in classrooms located at our church office building. Each class experiences guidance through the teaching of Scripture, creative worship activities and intentional discipleship.
Sunday Evening Bible Studies and Monthly Activities:
Our volunteer leaders also dedicate time twice a month to allow teens to experience scripture-focused fellowship. Students in grades 6-12 typically combine on the second and fourth Sunday evenings of the month beginning at 6:30 p.m. On average, there is also one "just for the fun of it" activity a month.
Our Sunday morning gatherings are the beginning for most people at Good Shepherd. We need people who can serve as set-up and greeters, as well as members of the worship team.
Because our Community Groups are so central to the life here at Good Shepherd, we are always in need of more people to host, lead and co-lead a group.
