Serving at Good Shepherd


Sunday Morning Service Teams

Sunday morning service teams foster community while enhancing the Sunday morning worship experience. People of all ages have the opportunity to get to know each other and to participate actively in our worship services. Team members volunteer in many ways, including greeting, ushering and assisting with communion. There are ten teams with each team serving every ten weeks. If you are not currently on a team, please consider joining one. It’s a meaningful way to participate in the life of the congregation. If you have questions or would like to join a team, please contact Laura Stein.
