Good Shepherd Leaders

Interested in leadership opportunities at GSLC?

  • Want to help lead and shape our church life, evangelical outreach and community service efforts?
  • Looking to make more friends within the Good Shepherd family? 

Then serving on the 2021 church council is the place for you! Contact Sue Cottrol, Denise Gray or Linda Schuessler for details.

Good Shepherd members elect individuals to serve on the congregation council and other groups that provide volunteer leadership, working with Pastor Wendy and many other volunteers to be God’s hands in our community and world.

Committee members, both ad hoc and ongoing, and other helpers are needed to be part of our mission of service and learning. Let us know how you’d like to be involved or if you have questions by contacting those listed below, Pastor Wendy or Elise in the church office.
