Outreach
 

 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. — Matthew 5:16

Good Shepherd is blessed to have a community that is dedicated to sharing the love of Christ with their neighbor through our active Outreach Ministry.  By earmarking 25% of our annual budget to Outreach, Good Shepherd is able to support a vareity of non-profit organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the Haitian Timoun Foundation, Graceworks Lutheran Services, and Adopt A Class.  In addition to providing financial support, members serve at organizations such as Matthew 25 Ministries, Tikkun Farm, and Sweet Cheeks Diaper Bank to provide the labor necessary to further their missions.  It is through the generous support of our congregation that Good Shepherd is able to touch the lives of so many.

Graceworks - May 2022 Update

More than 50 Good Shepherd members of all ages joined in the fun of bookmark-making on Super Bowl Sunday.  It was super!   GSLC’s bookmarks were combined with those made by residents at two Graceworks communities: Lutheran Community in Lawrenceburg, IN and Bethany Village in Dayton (Rehab and Memory Care Units).  In total nearly 900 bookmarks were made for local low-income students.

710 bookmarks were distributed to Crayons to Computers (C2C), which gets much-needed school supplies to teachers of low-income students.  C2C reported that all bookmarks were distributed in three days.  The other bookmarks were given to Good Shepherd’s beloved Taft Elementary students, along with books purchased with 2021’s Christmas Card funds donated by church members.  We’ve heard multiple reports of how the students love, and are using, the bookmarks (and books!).

Did you know Good Shepherd’s Graceworks Ministry Team is multi-gen?  It includes adults with connections to other ministries as well as some of our own beloved young people, the Tweens (who are in 4th – 6th grades).  The team will return to Graceworks St. Marks community in Milford on May 6 for a spring planting party.  St. Marks residents have limited financial resources and are learning how to come back together for fun, engaging activities in our emerging post-COVID world.  Roy Johnson from the Monday Morning Work Crew is making three raised beds for easy access by seniors and expert gardeners from GSLC’s Botanical Bunch are also involved. 

Interested to participate in this ministry?  You can begin as early as May 6!  Contact Mary Adams (adamsmarydmjk@gmail.com, 513.767.8029) if you are interested or have questions.
