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.

Taft Elementary - August 2022 Update

There’s still lots of activity happening at Taft even though school is out for the summer.  A group of people assembled many shelving units for the new Library and Makers’ Space over two days, the gardens needed lots of watering and weeding due to the hot weather and the Monday Morning Work Crew installed new plexiglass protective coverings over the first floor bulletin boards.  Thank you to all who came with power drills and screwdrivers to help make the improvements in the school!  

We are thankful for the Christ Hospital’s support of Taft, who has given each student their school supplies this year (so we will not have a school supply drive).  Also, uniforms are no longer required at CPS schools, so we wiil not have a uniform drive.  Thank you for all your generosity over the years.  We will still have plenty of opportunities during the school year to share our blessing with the students.  

We will let you know when the library is ready to have the books sorted and placed on shelves.  Thank you all who have given books through VBS or personal donations.  Please let Sue Matz (513-646-6928 or sgmatz13@gmail.com) know If you have any questions or would like to join the Taft team.
