Caring for All Members

“Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.” — Philippians 2:4

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church's care ministry, known as Caring for All Members (CFAM), provides support and care for the members and associates of our congregation.  A team of dedicated volunteers offer their time and talents to ensure that all members of GSLC are cared for in their time of need.

Below, you will find information about each of the distinct care ministries here at GSLC.  If you would like to speak with someone regarding a need you may have or information for how you can volunteer, contact Pastor Pat Badkey at

Stephen Ministers

Stephen Ministers provide distinctively Christian care to individuals who are hurting or struggling with difficult issues by listening and “walking with them” through those complicated times.

Shepherd's Pantry

The Shepherd's Pantry provides help in the form of groceries (primarily food) to members/long term associates/regular worshippers at GSLC who may be going through an especially tough time financially.  The Pantry may be accessed confidentially.

Prayer Chain

The Prayer Chain members take time each day to hold up in prayer the congregation as a whole and those members of the congregation who have shared a particular need or concern.

Minor Home Repairs

The Minor Home Repairs Team helps elderly members or member families with special needs with minor home repairs critical to their daily living activities or on-going safety and protection.

Just-In-Case Registry

The Just-In-Case Registry offers peace of mind to members/associates who live alone and have no family in the area through a commitment on the part of the church to stand ready to make any emergency calls to family or friends should the need arise.

Hospital Callers

Hospital Callers are Stephen-trained volunteers who visit members hospitalized or just home from the hospital to offer help and bring greetings from fellow members.

Bereavement Team

The Bereavement Team helps members grieving the loss of a loved one at the time of the funeral or memorial service by providing a time for fellowship and remembering which may include a meal or light refreshments.
