September 2019 marks 75 years that Good Shepherd has been at 100 West Luray Avenue in Alexandria and we’re celebrating.
We’ve launched the 75 Years of Building a Bigger Table campaign to raise $44,000 (to coincide with our building cornerstone laid in 1944) for overdue, unanticipated and upcoming repairs and improvements.
During these weeks, we’ll hear stories of the many people who’ve been fed here at God’s table and how this food—this Jesus—has transformed our lives and the lives of our neighbors.
The gospels are filled with stories about Jesus and food. Sometimes generosity or hospitality seems to be the point. Sometimes the teaching that happens around the table if the focus. Usually, it’s the simple fact that God has a heart for those who are hungry.
When Jesus is at the table, those who oppose him often complain the table is too big. But Jesus teaches there’s always room for more at the table. We continue his mission to build a #biggerTable. Learn more
