Angel Tree

Gifts due Sunday, Dec. 17


Under the Christmas tree in the lobby

Help us spread some love and joy this holiday season by providing Christmas gifts for the children of three local families. In addition to gifts from the children's wish lists, Good Shepherd will also give each family a $100 grocery store gift card.

If you'd like to participate:

  • Pick an ornament (or 2!) from the angel tree in our lobby. Each family has their own ornament—a Christmas tree, stocking or angel.
  • Purchase the gift listed (substitutions are fine if necessary).
  • Gift wrap it and please include a receipt if possible.
  • Be sure to tape the ornament to the gift so it goes to the correct person!
  • Place it under the tree by noon on Sunday, Dec. 17.

Some of the requested gifts are pricey. Perhaps you could join forces with a friend?

If you’d like to purchase a gift but are unable to come in and pick up an ornament, or if you’d like help deliver gifts after noon on Dec. 17 (a truly joyful experience), please contact Amy Hadley.

Serve with Us

We believe we’re called to be God’s hands in this world.

We’re sure “church” is as much in our community as it is in our building.

We seek to serve those in need and all in our community, not by working for them but with them.

We know we can serve through financial support and donations of things like school supplies, personal hygiene items, Angel Tree gifts and the like and we rejoice in doing so.

We also know as important as giving is, listening, accompanying and partnering with people in need and our community broadly, in our neighborhood and beyond, are critical.

Whether you’re our neighbor (regardless of religious or other affiliation) or a GSLC member, we welcome you to serve with us.

Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Matthew 25: 37-40
