The goal of the Outreach Committee is to create opportunities to meet and welcome people to follow Jesus alongside us at Good Shepherd. One simple way we do this is by getting our name out in the community through advertisements, word of mouth from our members, and various social media applications.
The committee is never afraid to get their hands dirty in our own community and throughout the world. Below is a list of some of the many projects the committee is involved in:
- Fair Trade Fair (selling fair trade crafts for Lutheran World Relief)
- Christmas Giving Tree (providing gifts for foster children who would not receive them otherwise & for the men’s safe house)
- Backpack Drive (provided to empty tomb for children in need)
- Special Offerings (for Lent, Thanksgiving, and more and given to area and international charities)
- Weekly home food deliveries using references from empty tomb and food from our pantry.
If you would like to help out with any of the events or serve on the Outreach Committee, please contact the Outreach Chairs.
