Join us at 9 am on Sunday, July 28th, and then again in September on the 8th to discuss the Congregational Care Ministry at Good Shepherd and how we can improve and expand our resources.

The CCM team, along with Fr. Gary, will develop more congregational care resources here at Good Shepherd, such as volunteer networks, illness, surgery and family support, spiritual companionship, and who to contact for help.  We will invite and empower others across the congregation to do this ministry.  We aim to meet immediate needs first while developing long-range plans to promote physical, emotional and spiritual health within the parish and community, while using our assets wisely.

As we formally organize the Congregational Care Ministry at Good Shepherd, we do so recognizing that God has already been working through many of you to care for others in our congregation. Our desire as a team is to enhance that kind of care, not replace it!

We want to connect:  We hope to talk to as many of you as possible about your current or anticipated needs and also what you’d like to see in this ministry.  The team will be at Summer Sunday Faith Forums at 9:00 am on July 28 and September 8 to receive your feedback.
