Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd
Community Outreach

If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, "Love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing right.
James 2:8 NIV
 

 Daily Bread Ministry

 The Daily Bread Ministry is a grass-roots outreach, started by an individual at LCGS who seeks the heart of Jesus.  A need was seen and now, through collective  efforts, that need is being met.  You are invited to meet at the church by 8:00 am each Tuesday to share in the community work of this ministry. Please join us, it is a blessing.

Lunches, boxes of groceries and hygiene kits are delivered to people in Douglasville who reside in the woods.  To keep our ministry going, we need one  item or can of food per week from each congregant.  Items needed are: drinks, small canned meals with pop-tops, fruit cups, pudding cups, crackers, pop-tarts, Little Debbie cakes, raisins, or anything that you would like to have in a lunch.

 Stephen's Ministry

Christ Caring for People through People.

The Stephen Minister's role is to bring God's love into the lives of people who are going through a difficult time or experiencing a crisis.
What do Stephen Ministers do? They listen to you, care for you, support and encourage you, and pray with and for you.
And in the midst of this confidential, one-to-one, caring relationship, God's healing love comes pouring through.

If you or someone you know is facing a crisis, large or small, and could benefit from the caring presence of a Stephen Minister,
talk to one of ours:
Pastor Mike Bovingdon, Rick Detraz, Holly Liersch, Steve Pulver, Doris Boylen, Paulette Bovingdon and Leila Myers. 

Our Stephen Ministers are ready to care for you!
