30 Years and Going Strong
The Good Shepherd Men’s Group completed its 30th year of meeting in 2015. We currently have approximately 38 members and average about 15-20 at our meetings. We welcome adult men of all ages to join us as part of our family. Our group is built on three principles; prayer, study, and service.
The group prays for its members, the Good Shepherd church family, any special requests and the Episcopal Church. We have created an extensive E-mail system to send prayer requests and keep in touch. We will lay hands on and pray for individuals and/or situations in our meetings as appropriate.
We meet at 7:30 am on two Saturdays a month. Each Saturday meeting begins with food and fellowship: a full, cooked breakfast on the second Saturday of the month, and coffee, fruit and donuts or bagels on the fourth Saturday of the month. Following this food and fellowship time, at 8am, we move into the chapel for a 60-minute program, which alternates between thematic, scripture-based studies, studies of the readings for the upcoming Sunday Eucharist, or special programs of interest.
In service we host the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, the annual Church picnic (with help from the Youth Group, and the Sunday school program), and help with maintenance at the church. We work with Covenant Cupboard (Food bank to help families) and the St. Clare’s ministry (St. Peter’s and St. Mary’s Church) feeding a meal to people weekly.
