COVID-19 protocols


Inova Blood Drive

Saturday, April 27

9 AM – 1 PM

Good Shepherd fellowship hall (lower level)

Blood donors save lives! According to Inova, a single donation can help save the up to 3 patient lives. When people who are sick or injured need blood, there’s only 1 place it can come from—a volunteer blood donor.

Over 200 units of blood and blood components are required daily to support the diverse communities Inova serves. All blood collected at our drive will be used for local patients and the need is great.

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
