Fundraisers and Drives
Helping The Community
At Good Shepherd, we have a variety of committees and groups who all favor particular initiatives to help in the community. Women of the ELCA (WELCA) collect school supplies to make school kits for Lutheran World Relief, and our Outreach and Evangelism committee frequently runs drives for supplies for Laundry Love of Goldsboro, a group that helps those in need in Wayne County wash clothes and bedding. Our fundraisers and collections change throughout the year and depending on current events.
Making a Joyful Noise
At Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, music is an important part of worship. When we meet, we sing "golden oldies" as well as contemporary praise and worship songs with equal gusto! Our services alternate the liturgy with the church season.
Right now, we can't meet in person for some of our favorite activities like Shepherd Choir and Handbell Choir, but each Friday evening, our director of music, Mike Nault, hosts a hymn sing on Zoom.
When we are able to meet in person, we host two Bible study sessions each week. Right now, we are hosting one Bible study session on Zoom each Monday evening.
Currently, we are studying the book of Romans. Anyone is welcome to jump in and join at any time.
