This Week at Good Shepherd

Sunday Worship

In our reading from the Gospel of Mark for this coming Sunday (10:17-31) Jesus is asked the question, “Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus responds by talking about “treasure in heaven.”

Join us in worship at 8:15 or 10:30 as we learn more about the things that can stand in the way of our generosity and faith.


Join us Sunday mornings between services at 9:30. This Sunday’s we continue a study of the Fulton Catechism.

Sign Up for Property Clean-up Day

Please come join members and friends of the Property Committee on Saturday morning, October 27, from 8 a.m. to noon, as we work on the annual fall cleanup of the church property. Learn more.

Coat Collection


To help Camden Promise families, we will be collecting new and gently used winter coats, boots, gloves and scarves for all ages. Bring them to the narthex.

Midrash on France

On Wednesday mornings at 7:00, the Midrash on France group meets. They wrestle with the Bible, with books, with topics of the day, in an attempt to better understand faith and maybe even more importantly, understand how to bring faith into this day and our lives. All are invited. Learn more.
