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 - February 2023

The surprisingly heavy snowfall of January 22 caused a reschedule of the Adult Forum featuring    Sandra Combs from Graceworks’ central offices.  She will instead present at GSLC’s February 5, 10:00am Adult Forum.  Please attend to learn more about the organization’s mission of Faithful Caring, how GSLC has supported Graceworks as one of its long-standing member congregations, and how YOU! can get involved.

While delivering gifts to several Graceworks Enhanced Living group homes for people with disabilities (as part of GSLC’s annual Christmas Gift Program), we learned of the need for oversized bibs.  Bibs are frequently worn by both residents and staff at mealtimes to help keep clothing clean and unstained.  In January Sue Matz made 10 bibs for two homes in Mt. Healthy.  The staff was over-joyed to receive them; great big bear hugs ensued!

Do you have sewing skills?  We are investigating the need for bibs at other Enhanced Living homes and want to make more if we learn that other sites are short on this used-daily item.  Sewers are needed and you can help!   Please contact Mary Adams if you would like to get involved in this, or any other aspect of, Good Shepherd’s ministry to Graceworks (adamsmarydmjk@gmail.com, 513.767.8029).
