Prepare the way of the Lord! Good Shepherd will be hosting Midweek Advent services in December during the season of Advent. These services will begin at 7 pm and will be held in-person and will be live-streamed on Facebook and YouTube.
Home for Christmas
This year has been different. And Christmas Eve will be different as well. There will be no in-person services this year because of the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic. Instead, we will be live-streaming a service – “Home for Christmas” – on Facebook and YouTube starting at 5 pm. We will be offering different ways to participate in this service and we will be sharing more information in the weeks to come.

Holiday Shopping and Amazon Smile
We received $229.06 in Amazon Smile donations from shopping purchases made between July 1 to September 30 at smile.amazon.com. Thank you to everyone who has made use of Amazon Smile to support Good Shepherd.
If you already shop at Amazon, it is easy to support our ministry. Instead of going to amazon.com to shop, just add “smile.” before amazon.com. So the link will be smile.amazon.com. Any time you make a purchase at this link 0.5% of your purchase will go to the charity of your choice. It may not be much, but it adds up over time and as more of us make use of this service. Please keep in mind that you need to use the smile link every time you make a purchase. If you go back to using the regular Amazon link or use the Amazon app, we will not get a donation with those purchases.
